Brazilian polyglot living in Japan

Polyglot? That’s right, you did not misread. A polyglot Brazilian who has lived in Japan for 20 years.

Júlio César Pereira da Silva, is a 44-year-old Brazilian who lives in Osaka. He is married to a Japanese woman and has two children with her. Júlio works as a taxi driver in Japan and speaks fluently Japanese, English, German and Spanish. He can also communicate in Mandarin, French and Korean.

Polyglot’s life story and path

Júlio César Pereira da Silva, a native of Rio de Janeiro, worked as a volunteer teaching English to blacks and needy people. Later, he entered the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) in 1991 to graduate in Japanese/English with a specialization in German.

Júlio graduated from UFRJ in 1996 and managed to do a master’s degree in Japanese at Osaka University. Then, he started to work as an interpreter translator in Japan. He did translations for automobile, railway and shipbuilding companies, including Kawasaki and Mitsubishi.

Eventually, Julius taught English to Japanese when he was in Kyoto. It is clear that Júlio will not stop working as a taxi driver, he recently worked in customer service. You can see the entire trajectory of his dedicated life following your YouTube channel by clicking here.

To get an idea, he currently studies Russian, Italian and Arabic.

Júlio Pereira: Example of dedication or point outside the curve?

We all know the reality of many of the Brazilians who live in Japan. Factory workers, live where there are communities of Brazilians and do not speak Japanese.

Most have little or no time available to learn Japanese due to the exhaustive routine of factories. Most also have no higher education. and few had any opportunity that allowed them to travel to Japan before settling there.

However, Júlio is an Afro-Brazilian who managed to graduate, learn Japanese and found employment with multinationals. But, can Julius be considered an exception or an example to follow?

For those who are interested in Japan, in the Japanese language and culture, want to live in the country and have this as their goal, Júlio is a man to take as an example. Not only as an example of what to do to live in Japan, but also as an example of life.

Júlio Pereira, is an example of determination and focus. It is also proof that, if you have a dream or goal, the effort to achieve it will be worth it in the end. Furthermore, as a Brazilian, Júlio is also proof that not everyone goes to Japan to work in the factory and complain about life.

So, if Japan is your destination, study the language and culture there before going there. Don’t go to Japan just to escape Brazil. Otherwise, you will be just another one whose problems have changed addresses. If Júlio did it, so can you.

Exclusive interview with Brazilian Polyglot in Japan!

Finally, I will leave an interview that my friend Roberto Pedraça did with Júlio Pereira:

If I could, I would define this interview using these three words. I learned a lot from Júlio, who besides being intelligent, is an extremely humble person. So to add, a feeling and a quality that this interview motivated me to put into practice is humility.

If you have a dream, if you want to learn Japanese, if you want to go to Japan and if you want to learn how to make wine using shampoo. If you have motivation, consistency, discipline and humility I am sure that you will be able to achieve your goals. It may take time, but it will succeed!
