Languages - Japanese


Japanese is primarily spoken by the 125 million people living within the archipelago of Japan.

It is often the fascinating traditions and popular culture that draws learners to the Japanese language, but in recent years Japanese has also become increasingly important for Australians in the business world.

Japanese has been identified as a language of economic importance, and its value is continuing to grow as Australia becomes increasingly aligned with our close Asian neighbour.
