Melbourne is one of the most liveable cities in Australia, according to the BBC, and this attracts thousands of visitors and immigrants every year. According to the 2011 census, almost 1,000 people of Japanese origin have decided to make Melbourne their home, shaping its cultural landscape. For example, you can find Japanese homeware, decoration and discount shops, spa baths, restaurants and themed supermarkets around the city. In addition, with the advance of globalisation and trade agreements between Australia and Japan, more and more companies are looking to hire fluent Japanese speakers to enable relationships with Japanese-speaking clients at home and overseas. Start learning this Asian language with us and make the most out of the social, cultural and professional opportunities available to those who speak Japanese fluently in Melbourne and beyond. Contact us at Language Trainers to get started!

Why Study Japanese in Melbourne

For Work: Many Japanese companies, irrespective of their size, confront unpredicted challenges and complex issues when entering overseas markets, such as that of Australia, so they are always looking for bilingual speakers who can help them connect with their new clients and partners. So, if you are looking for a new job and are not sure where to start, you can contact the Global Japanese Practice in Australia, an institution that provides assistance to businesses and entrepreneurs with their market entry strategy, development and execution and global mobility. Another institution that can help you network is the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Melbourne. Established in 1963, the Chamber promotes friendly relations between Japan and Australia by organising talks, conferences and networking events in Melbourne. Don’t miss these opportunities to broaden your professional horizons and make the most out of such events by learning Japanese with us!

For Culture: Work aside, you also have a lot of opportunities to experience the ancient Japanese culture around the city. For example, the Consulate General of Japan Melbourne on Bourke Street tries to promote the Japanese culture by conducting seminars about visual and performing arts, pop culture, school, leisure, food, customs and tourist destinations. Join them and learn more about this fascinating culture! Also, there are plenty of stores and shops that feature Japanese products, like Hometown Asian Supermarket on Elizabeth Street. There, you can find goodies from all over the Asian region, with a particular focus on Japanese cuisine, from hand-rolled udon noodles, kurobata pork, a generous variety of miso and much more. Allow us to teach you how to ask for all these ingredients, so you can cook like a Japanese chef!

For Social: You can also use your newly-acquired Japanese skills to meet people with similar interests in Melbourne. One option is to join meet-up groups, such as Japaneasy Language and Culture Community, a language exchange group that welcomes anyone interested in learning and practising the Japanese language. Make some new friends while having lunch and improving your listening and speaking skills in this foreign language! And if you want to feel as if you were in Tokyo without leaving Melbourne, you should visit Onsen Ma, one of the best and most traditional spa facilities you will find in the city, and the perfect spot to leave the bustle of the city behind and relax for a while with your new friends.
