The study of Japanese contributes to the overall education of learners, particularly in the areas of communication, intercultural understanding and general knowledge

Through studying Japanese, learners gain access to Japanese-speaking communities in Japan and in many other countries, including Australia. The ability to communicate in Japanese will (in conjunction with other skills acquired in the study of this course) provide learners with enhanced vocational opportunities and the possibility to apply Japanese culture and language skills to work, further study, training or personal interests. This Foundation course is designed for beginners with no experience of learning Japanese. This course is also suitable for learners who have had some prior exposure to Japanese and who wish to develop their skills, knowledge, and understanding of Japanese language and culture. This course provides a pathway to the study of Japanese Level 3 (JPN315114).
