Abstract: The study set out mainly to examine the actual use of Japanese in real life among graduates of the Department of Japanese Studies, National University of Singapore. The study also sought to investigate the graduates-perceived needs while using Japanese even though they have completed the language course at NUS. Hence, the study also sought to investigate the attitude of those not using the language. The purpose of gathering these information on graduates using or not using Japanese in real life was hopefully to provide some useful input to curriculum review and development of Japanese language. Data was gathered through a survey in the form of written questionnaire which was administered to a selected sample of 120 graduates of the Department of Japanese Studies at NUS, and the analysis was done mannually. The questionnaire consisted mainly of 3 sections which focused on gathering information on the use of Japanese among graduates in real life.
