Year 13 Japanese

Welcome to year 13 Japanese at EGGS!

Japan is known for its cultural influence on the world. From food, to anime and manga, to traditional clothing and decoration, Japan’s culture is unique and beautiful. Speaking Japanese opens the door to experiencing this new world of culture, history and tradition.

As NZ’s 4th largest trading partner, there are many opportunities for Kiwis to use Japanese both in Japan and at home.
