About Us

Founded in 2010, our highly trained native Japanese teachers will bring you many years of private tutoring and teaching experience in schools across Japan and Australia.

In the Japanese language, “i” has the same pronunciation as “love”. At iJapanese Language & Culture School, we promote the love of our ancient culture through all our teachings, sharing with you our passion for the country we care so much about.

Not only will you be knowledgeable in the language, we’ll expose you to all elements of the Japanese culture for a well-rounded appreciation of what it means to be truly Japanese.

We pride ourselves on being the best Japanese language school for Melbourne students looking for a well-rounded experience. With us, you don’t just learn to speak Japanese – you also learn about the country’s culture, history and way of life. And because we have classes available for people of all ages, backgrounds and
abilities, you can be sure that we’ll cater for you.
