Re: [tlug] Looking for Summer Internship in Japan

The trouble is though, if you have German ancestry and a Japanese wife who doesn't speak any German, your wife will not get a visa in the state bordering Switzerland until she has passed the German equivalent of the JLPT1. You'll have to move to France instead where there is no such discrimination against non-US, non-Canadian, non-Australian, non-NZ, non-EU spouses of EU nationals, 

I think you're finding discrimination too easily. My sister is a US citizen who married a German, and she also could not get a working visa until she passed the German language and culture test. Which is, by the way, more equivalent to JLPT3 (or 2, at a stretch) than 1, and German doesn't have kanji.
