An important friend
Japan is the second largest economy in the world, a weighty title that gives the country’s language world-wide importance.
After China, Japan is Australia’s second most important trading partner and relations between the two countries as democracies in the Asia-Pacific rim are intensely close – another reason why, going forward, it’s important Australians are fluent speakers of Japanese.
In a nutshell, the Japanese language is rich in culture and history and a popular choice if you wish to master a second language.

Study in Japan
Our Bachelor of Languages (Japanese Foundation) is designed to give you a deeper understanding of Japan, its language, culture and history.
This means that as well as using online technologies and literature to gain a perspective of what life is really like in Japan, you also complete a one-year in-country component to your studies, travelling overseas in third or fourth year to study and learn about Japanese in context.
