Did you know that, according to a global survey conducted at the end of 2019, Australia is the most popular country for Japanese people to live in? This link between the two countries started in the 1960s, with the rising prosperity and links between the two countries leading to an increase in the number of Japanese choosing to live in Australia. The 2011 census recorded over 35,000 Japanese speakers residing in the country, and 2,000 of them live in Adelaide. As many of these people are monolingual speakers, so learning the language is a smart move if you would like to connect with them. Signing up for a Japanese course will also come in handy if you want to take advantage of the many professional opportunities around the city and make the most out of any trips to Japan. Contact us and we will design a suitable course for you.

Why Study Japanese in Adelaide

For Work: Learning Japanese will look great on your CV and give you a competitive edge when applying for a job. Those who are looking for an international position and are not sure where to start should reach out to the Australia Japan Association of South Australia on Pulteney Street. This institution was founded in 1967 to foster and promote friendship and understanding between the people of Australia and Japan through events, talks and conferences. And if you are looking for networking opportunities, you will be happy to know that the Australia Japan Business Co-operation Committee has been organising an annual conference at the Adelaide Convention Centre since 1961. This is a forum for discussion amongst senior Australian and Japanese executives and attracts high-level representation from key players in Australia-Japan business. Impress them with the Japanese you learn with us at Language Trainers!

For Culture: You will also find many opportunities to experience this ancient Asian culture around Adelaide. For example, why not attend the OzAsia Festival? This is Australia’s leading contemporary arts festival that engages with Asia. It presents a bold and exciting line-up of arts and workshops, such as learning how to do origami, how to cook traditional dishes and even how to wear a kimono like a true Japanese woman. Held annually over three weeks in spring, OzAsia Festival showcases the best theatre, dance, music, visual arts, literature, film, food and cultural events from Japan, so don’t miss this opportunity to feel as if you were in Japan without ever leaving Adelaide. You can even participate in the Japanese Speech Contest organised by the Japanese Language Teachers Association of SA every September, which aims to encourage learners who are studying Japanese to showcase their language skills in a fun contest. Make sure you prepare for this exciting event in advance with us at Language Trainers!

For Social: Your Japanese skills will also enable you to socialise with others who share your passion for the language and culture. For example, you can join the J-Kai monthly social event that has been running since 1998. It provides an opportunity for Japanese and Australians with an interest in Japan to meet in a relaxed atmosphere and put their language skills to use. They also watch movies in their original language, listen to live music and even welcome guest speakers who come all the way from Japan. Anyone can join and it is free, so take advantage of this opportunity to practise what you learn in your language course with us.
