In every sector of society, New Zealand needs more people capable of operating ‘inter-culturally’. The study of a second language is a key pathway to achieve this. And because of the special relationship NZ shares with Japan, there are many strong reasons for choosing Japanese as that second language. Through interviews with 11 influential Kiwis and a comparative study of UK, USA and Australia, this recently released report by researchers at AUT, explores the situation in New Zealand and makes recommendations for the future. View the report here.
