Welcome to another awesome chin-wagging episode here on the Aussie English podcast!


Today's guest is David Rajaraman! During our last conversation, we talked about how he went from India to Brunei, to Australia, and ultimately to Japan in just about 30 years.


In the first part of this two part series, we're going to chat to David about how he went from an English teacher to working as a car mechanic in Japan, what it's like working as a foreigner in Japan. What it's like working with Japanese people at Japanese companies and applying for jobs at Japanese companies as a foreigner. You know, life as an international citizen.


We also talk about Japanese culture as a foreigner and how to integrate into Japanese culture; like, the good versus the strange aspects of Japanese culture as a foreigner.


Also, we talk about what it's like being married to foreigners. David and I sort of share our battle stories of both of us being married to a Japanese person and a Brazilian person respectively, and sort of the nuances that go on at home with our cultural differences and linguistic differences.
