1) Every language curriculum is designed in levels of learning and that is the right way to learn and analyse our knowledge .

Japanese language curriculum is designed and planned into 5 levels of learning from Beginners to advance level by the Japanese Government prospects named as JLPT levels (Japanese Language Proficiency test) 

N5 is basic - N1 is advance

JLPT exams are held twice an year in July and December and each level needs 5-6 months to prepare for efficiently.

Therefore , to learn Japanese level one needs 2-3 years to master ( one can find a good job after doing N3)

2) There are many private institutes , private teachers .

Language also taught in Universities . ( DU and JNU)

Depends on the time one can devote ,the person opts for an institute or university.

Detailed literature and history of Japan is taught in Universities.

3)Worth is parallel to the background you are already into.

There are many career opportunities.

Amongst all foreign languages , Japanese language is best in scope in India. 

4) Out of 3 scripts ,Kanjis are the most Difficult in the language.

It is recommended to practice spoken skills from the very beginning . This is the key to find a good job easily and obviously Kanjis and Grammar will take hold with time too.

Thank You

Itadakimasu and Gochisousama:

There is a custom to begin and end your meal with a greeting that expresses your gratitude toward the food itself.
 
There is a life force that exists within food, and, as you begin to consume that force, you say Itadakimasu (literally, "I humbly receive").
 
Saying Gochisosama (literally, "It was a feast") after the meal is a cultural given. Whether you say it out loud or not depends on the situation. When you are at a quiet place or by yourself, wordless appreciation is just as good as saying the phrase out loud.
 
They are simple words, however very important to think about appretiation of food.

Basic or beginner Level Japanese should ideally be learnt in a classroom where the teacher is able to guide you through the letter and writing system, the pronunciation system, the counting system, the grammar concepts, etc. However, having said that, there are cases where the learners' lifestyle does not make it possible for them to attend classes regularly. This is where online learning comes into play. I suggest you go to wikihow's Start learning Japanese page and read the information given there thoroughly.

Good day Everyone,

It is pretty evident in present time that the burden of studies, as well as stressful lifestyle, has taken over the happiness quotient of general masses. Not just that, even technology has been a boon as well as a doom for present generation depending on what a person makes of it.

So it's pretty important to inculcate a healthy habit in your daily routine concerning learning new skills to obtain a stand out in present times. Its not just that but even such habits help people overcome boredom and actually stimulates healthy growth in children of all ages. Activities ranging from singing, playing guitar, dancing, painting, learning more about new cultures and languages can actually be a great start to what you want in your strength arsenal apart from academic qualifications. It's just where interest lies and it only takes handful courage to pursue it

Happy learning.
