Why Study Japanese in Edmonton

Learn Japanese for Work: Are you planning on learning Japanese so you can improve your chances of getting a Japanese speaking job? Although there are very few Japanese companies plying their trade in the city, aside from over 30 Japanese restaurants in the downtown area, Japanese speaking skills are in high demand with international companies in Halifax. The city is home to a large number of private sector companies such as Air Canada Rouge, Ultra Electronics and West Jet Canada who are always on the lookout for bilingual Japanese speakers to head up their international operations and for translation and support roles. Alternatively, there are over 100 Canadian companies that have a presence in Japan that need bilingual speakers. The Canadian Chambers of Commerce in Japan is a great source to find out more about job opportunities in Japan for Canadians who speak Japanese.

Learn Japanese for Culture: Japanese lessons can give you a fascinating insight into the colorful Japanese culture and its unique charms in Halifax. The Ikebana Shop on Quinpool Road in the heart of the city is a great place to visit to buy traditional Japanese pottery, tea, incense, and even anime and manga products. Although animation and art are cornerstones of Japanese culture, its cuisine is also just as important. There are teppanyaki and sushi restaurants in every town and city in the world, and Halifax is no different. You can try out your Japanese skills on the staff at one of the more popular Japanese restaurants in Halifax such as Tako Sushi & Ramen on Parkland Drive, Wasabi House on Quinpool Road, the Dharma Sushi Restaurant on Argyle Street and Minato Japanese Restaurant on Queen Street.

Learn Japanese for Social: One of the best ways to integrate yourself with the Japanese speaking community or with those who have an interest in Japanese culture in Halifax is to join a social group. It doesn’t matter if you are a novice speaker or just want to meet likeminded people to get a better understanding of the language as there are a few fun and friendly meetup groups in the city. If you want to practise a few Japanese phrases, the ‘Learning Japanese and Language Exchange’ group has almost 100 members and meets once every month. If you want to immerse yourself into the unique world of Manga and Japanese animation, the Halifax Anime Group meets once or twice per month to watch anime movies and get involved in cosplay events. They were founded in January 2019 and are a great vehicle to explore Japanese culture in the city.


Where to Learn Japanese in and Around Halifax

Learning Japanese with our Language Trainers instructors will simplify your whole experience. Although many people like to meet our tutors in the comfort of their own homes, you can also meet them at or close to your place of work or other locations in the city that fit in with your lifestyle. Our flexible Japanese lessons are structured so it’s all about you and what and your requirements. Learning the language in a Japanese-style café such as Cafe Taiyaki 52 on Brunswick Street in the downtown area of the city is a very authentic place to be around native Japanese speakers. If parks and cafes are too busy for you to concentrate, you can meet our Japanese tutor at public libraries such as Halifax Central Library and the Keshen Goodman Public Library, both of which are centrally located in the city.
