Knowing Japanese as well as a native Japanese speaker was definitely useful when meeting people from Japan, as well as people at the various kenjin-kai who are interested in learning Japanese. Being able to read Japanese certainly helps during research of different topics, whether it’s on a particular disease or debugging a computer program.
To current students: Continue on and don’t forget to have fun! Read some manga in Japanese to not forget kanji!
