- When did you come to Japan?
I came to Osaka from Mongolia in December 2020.
At first, I attended a Japanese language school in Osaka.。
- Why did you come to Japan?
It was to avoid forgetting Japanese.
I studied Japanese at a university in Mongolia, but I forgot Japanese because I didn't use it after graduation.
I wanted to go to Japan, and I came to Japan to avoid forgetting the Japanese I had learned.
- Have you taken the JLPT?
Yes, I have. I passed N2 in 2021.
I took the test 3 times and finally passed.
The reading questions were the most difficult, but I was happy when I passed.
I want to take N1 someday.
- How did you study Japanese?
I studied by writing kanji, watching dramas, and talking to Japanese friends.
Also, if I don't understand Japanese at work, I immediately look up the meaning in a translation app.
- What is your expertise?
International affairs. I was an interpreter between Mongolian and Japanese.
I supported Mongolian exchange students.。
- Where did you get your current visa?
I got my visa in Japan.
I got a student visa in Mongolia, and I changed to my current visa when I got a job in Japan.
Because working in Japan was my dream.
Also, a Mongolian acquaintance who has been living in Japan for 20 years helped me change my visa.
- How did you know about YOLO JAPAN?
I found out about it on social media.
When I was looking for a part-time job as an exchange student, YOLO came up on Facebook and Instagram.
My friend also told me about YOLO.
- What do you think of the self-introduction video?
At first, I was very embarrassed.
I couldn't take the video myself, so I got support from the YOLO staff to take it.
The staff took the video in an interview format, which was easier than taking the video myself.
In the video, I talked about myself in Japanese as much as possible, including the reason I came to Japan and my hobbies.
- What is your current job?
I work for a logistics company.
I work as a full-time employee at the Osaka office, five days a week.
- Is there any foreign staff in your office?
There is no foreign staff in my office.
However, since the headquarters is a large company in Kyushu, there are a few in other offices.
- What is the hardest thing about your job?
Japanese is difficult.
The other employees speak too quickly for me to understand sometimes.
However, I am grateful that they kindly teach me whenever I have questions, and that there is also a new employee training program.
- What do you like about your current job?
The fact that the colleagues I work with are kind.
They help me immediately if I'm in trouble, and I really enjoy my job.
- Do you want to get permanent residency?
I want to live in Japan for a long time in the future.
The salary in Mongolia is lower than in Japan, and the cost of living is rising.
I want to save money in Japan and go back and forth between Japan and Mongolia.
