Japanese in Sydney

Sydney is a city where many cultures and languages co-exist: according to the 2011 census, people who live in Sydney speak more than 240 different languages, and Japanese is one of the most popular. In fact, almost 30,000 people in the city speak Japanese at home! So, learning Japanese will help you to communicate with this growing community and to make new friends. Also, taking Japanese classes in Sydney will look great on your CV and even help you make the most out of your trips to Japan! Studying with Language Trainers is very easy, as we specialise in designing courses tailored to your skills and schedule.

Why Study Japanese in Sydney

For Work and Studies: If you are looking for a new job, then learning Japanese will help you broaden your professional horizons. For example, you can contact the Australia Japan Society on Broadway St, a not-for-profit organisation that, since 1968, has been promoting mutual understanding and goodwill between Australia and Japan. You can also get in touch with the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Pitt Street, another institution that aims to enhance friendly ties and economic and cultural relations by organising training programs, seminars and networking meetings. Many of the entrepreneurs that attend these meetings are of Japanese origin, so why not impress them with the language skills you acquire with us at Language Trainers? And if you are actively job seeking, you will be glad to know that several companies are looking to hire bilingual speakers, such as Asahi Beverages, Houz and Sanofi, which is a great incentive to start learning Japanese today!

For Culture: Those who would like to experience culture instead of looking for a job can find many instances to do so in Sydney. Avid readers can find thousands of books written in Japanese in one of the most well-known bookstores in Sydney, called Kinokuniya. This amazing bookshop stores manga, graphic novels, cookbooks and literature in general, so you will be able to put into practice what you learn with us at Language Trainers! And those more interested in music can attend the annual Matsuri Festival on Chatswood Mall, featuring traditional Japanese food, music and performances. This festival is held every year to celebrate Japanese culture and cross-cultural friendship between the Japanese community and the local one. You can even buy gorgeous traditional items and take short workshops, such as Calligraphy or Flower Arrangement, taught by Japanese native speakers; so, knowing the language will come in handy.

For Social: Meeting new friends with a similar interest in Japanese is also possible in Sydney. For example, you can join the Japanese English Exchange - Sydney, a group of people who want to improve their command of the language and also share experiences with arts, heritage, history and everything related to Japan and Australia. They welcome people with all levels of proficiency, so don’t be shy. You can join their meetings every second Saturday at Albion Place Hotel on George Street. After the meeting, you can impress them with the Japanese pronunciation you learn in your lessons and take them to a traditional restaurant, such as Izaka Fujiyama on Waterloo St. There, you can sample delicious sashimi, sushi and tamagoyaki, among other options. Imagine ordering these dishes in Japanese!

Client testimonials

See some of the testimonials we have received from our clients.

”On the first day, my teacher brought a variety of materials to assess my level and see what type of areas I wanted to focus on. From then on we discussed what I wanted to do in each following lesson and she even went out of her way and brought material that I hadn't thought of that proved incredibly relevant and useful for me.”
