What is it like?

Japanese appeals to students fascinated by Japan's rich culture and history, or to anyone motivated by Japan's importance to New Zealand as a trading partner.

Japanese equips students with advanced language skills in spoken and written Japanese, coupled with a solid understanding of the cultural background underpinning this complex and powerful society.

You can expect to acquire competence equivalent to at least Level Two of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (Nihongo Noryoku Shiken). Each language course builds upon the previous one.

  • Business
  • Development
  • Education
  • Foreign affairs
  • Trade and commerce
  • Tourism
