I enrolled at nunawading japanese langauge school earlier in the year.It is and has been a great learning experience also very motivational.I am not a morning person by all means 😅 but the teachers have great energy and great vibes throughout the lesson I always look forward to going to school every week for lessons and just trying my hardestThank you for teaching me
My Japanese learning experience has been so enjoyable and fun because of Miyuki Sensei (teacher) and her team. The energy in the room and the way the classes are structured are all so engaging and supporting. Every Wednesday after work I go to the 6pm class and I feel like I’m walking into a room of fun and catching up with old friends, as we always have so much laughs during the class and it’s just such a relaxing way to be productive (as I also learn new or enhance conversational phrases every time I go!)The Senseis are all so friendly and energetic and wonderful people, I would recommend anyone who wants to learn Japanese to come here, and have a great time.どうもありがとうございます <3
I’ve been studying here at Nunawading Japanese School for 6months and there is no other place I’d recommend more. Not only are ALL the teachers from Japan, but they are SO passionate in teaching their native language to every student. Every single one of them has their own fun personality and way of teaching it’s so refreshing coming to class every week. Every class is engaging, fun and I guarantee you’ll learn something no matter what level your Japanese is at!- Jordan, B2 Level.
My husband and I had 'learn Japanese' on our bucket list for years, until a friend suggested we do something about it and start taking classes! We've been so happy with the experience at Nunawading Japanese School, our classmates are great and the teachers are wonderful. Highly recommend.
I love, love, love the enthusiasm of the teachers. The content is at a great pace - I'm learning lots, and looking forward to learning more!
I was a student here for about 3 years now, online for the first two and then in person for the last, and it's safe to say it was the most fun I've ever had learning a language. I've learnt so much from the teachers here and I'm very grateful to them! I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to learn Japanese, whether it be starting completely from scratch or brushing up on the knowledge you already have!
I have been a student of the online intermediate level lessons with Nunawading Japanese school. My objective was to regain my language skill and I found the classes a great learning experience. My teachers made the classes fun, very interactive covering various topics to enhance the language skill and general knowledge about Japan. I thoroughly enjoyed the classes. A big "Thank You" to all the teachers for making this a memorable experience and helping me in my language journey.
Have only been going for a few months but really enjoy classes and look forward to them every week. Teachers are all fabulous and so much fun as to make us bunch of introvert adults feel completely comfortable engaging in class - kaiwa attack! Glad I signed up and highly recommend the school. Hoping to use these skills when I visit Japan in the future.
I can’t recommend this place enough the teachers are extremely attentive and helpful, they have created an amazing atmosphere everyone gets along so well
My wife and I have been attending the school for a couple of months now, and the progress we’ve made as beginners is astounding. This is the place to be!
I'm a current beginner student with Nunawading Japanese School and loving it! It my short 6 months of classes I have learnt so much. The curriculum is great to follow and just makes sense! Thank you to the Nunawading team for all the hard work you do! See you all in class :)
I am an online student and I cannot express enough how much I enjoy these classes. The teachers and the curriculum are first class. Classes are delivered in a friendly and encouraging manner while there is a strong focus on learning, growth and development. I thoroughly recommend the Nunawading Japanese School - Japanese Tutor Melbourne.

Studying with Nunawading Japanese School has been an incredibly fun and rewarding experience. The teachers are all so kind and friendly, well prepared and are always happy to answer any questions you might have. Highly recommend!
I was at this school for about 2 years, and it was really a wonderful community to be apart of. Miyuki-sensei crafts the curriculum herself with the team, and it results in informative, fun and enjoyable classes. Good team of teachers also. You'll really become quite good at learning Japanese coming to this school.Also its located really close to Nunawading Station with plenty of places around for a good dinner or coffee afterwards!I'm now living in Japan, and this has helped me lay the foundations for speaking Japanese.
Thank you so much for the wonderful experience in Nunawading Japanese School! My short time there was spent with very friendly teachers and kind classmates. Entering this school was one of the best things I chose to do for myself. I’ve learned a lot, and the teachers were always happy to answer my questions. I’m glad I picked the right place.
I started learning at Nunawading Japanese School in October 2022. My classes are online as I am based in Adelaide, SA. I think one of the best things about Nunawading classes is the conversational speaking practice (かいわーアッタク！！). For 4 months prior I had studied a different Japanese language school in person in SA before Joining Nunawading Japanese School. I found that my old school focussed so heavily on writing and reading; and as a result I felt I had no confidence in speaking and my listening skills were really lacking.I found Nunawading Japanese School on Google, and saw they offered online classes which was perfect for me to fit around work hours. I was a bit nervous as I wasn't sure how an online class would work but I have to say every class is run so smoothly, the Sensei (teachers) are amazing and so supportive, and it's a really fun interactive learning environment with your classmates.The textbook and homework（しゅくだい <3）are well paced, and the listening exercises for each chapter are great for reinforcing vocabulary and grammar you learn in class. In 6 months I've made friends with my class mates and I'm looking forward to making a trip from Adelaide to Melbourne for the Japanese Summer Festival at Box Hill on May 26th! Big thank you to Mari sensei, Eiko sensei, Kanoko sensei, Noriko sensei and Vaughn-san for their awesome work!
Spent a year and a half doing classes here and loved it. All of the teachers are super energetic and make every class fun. Classmates were super friendly and welcoming and it was great to have other people to learn with at a similar skill level. ありがとうございました!
One of the best places you could learn japanese from. Friendly teachers which provide a safe and fun environment to learn japanese no matter what level you are at. First time i've actually enjoyed going to classes
I’ve been taking the online classes from Hong Kong for more than a year. It’s been a truly amazing and enjoyable experience for me. What impresses me most is that all the teachers at Nunawading Japanese School are enthusiastic and considerate. They always encourage me to speak and practice, even if I am still a beginner. (The dialogue time excites me a lot.) Plus, they are very professional and have a carefully designed syllabus which helps me to learn new stuff while consistently reviewing what has been covered. And since I'm taking individual classes, they keep adjusting the pace of teaching according to my own needs.The school has also done a great job in the management of online classes (thanks to Vaughan). Learning online is almost no different than taking the classes in person. I do recommend the online courses to those who love learning Japanese but are not able to attend in person.
Nunawading Japanese School have extremely energetic and friendly teachers that help to keep motivation high while learning your second language. The group classes are thoroughly enjoyable and a great way to meet other people who are also learning Japanese. I gladly recommend this school if you are wanting to learn Japanese.If you want to get through a lot of content or move at a very fast pace for some deadline (travel dates booked etc.), you may want to start a discussion with them to accommodate that as the group classes naturally take a more balanced pace.I am having a great time and have no doubts you too will enjoy learning Japanese with the team at Nunawading Japanese School.
I compared similar schools but found nothing like this one. Relationship between quality and price is great but nothing can beats their professionalism and such amazing way of teaching, that makes you look forward to the next class and crave for more learning.Five stars is not enough for this amazing team and now almost three years later I’m still convinced there’s no place like this.End of the year Christmas event is such an amazing time to catch up with classmates and have a bit of culture and understanding of what Japan has to offer.Keep up the great job, team, all sensei are amazing!
If you want to learn Japanese come here! No if's or but'sLessons are fun yet challenging and I had only realized how much I had learned after looking back at my first lessons work and comparing it to my current work.Good people, Great teachers and a convenient location.If you're reading this thinking whether you should give it a shot, send them a message now to book a time because you're missing out if you're not studying here.-JackEDIT: Still here, Still loving it!Edit again: Still great!Edit again: Very much worthwhile after my trip to Japan! Very happy to be conversation al when travelling
Still going strong 8 years on with Japanese Tutor Melbourne and would have never been at the level with my Japanese if it wasn’t for the amazing teachers and school with the amazing curriculum they use. Thanks to my teachers I can speak with confidence in Japanese when I visit with anyone and makes travelling in Japan so much more fulfilling!Japanese Tutor Melbourne is fantastic! I started back in August 2015 and am amazed at the progress I have had in my Japanese studies, both in writing and speaking all thanks to Japanese Tutor Melbourne. The teachers are amazing, taking the time to make sure you fully understand each lesson and have actually taken it on board. If you’re looking for a great school for learning Japanese this is the best in Melbourne.
Learning Japanese at the Nunawading Japanese School for the past 2 years has been an amazing experience. The teachers are extremely enthusiastic and bring a contagious energy to the class every week. The classes are fun and interesting while still challenging your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. I highly recommend studying here if wanting to learn Japanese.
Loved taking classes here! Teachers are so lovely and welcoming, definitely recommend! I’ll be back for sure
I have been learning Japanese with the Nunawading Japanese School for six months now. I have previously studied the language, however my commitment to studying and retention of the language itself was not very strong or motivated. This course however has totally changed my perspective on learning another language! The classes are very engaging, and they pace the units so that you never feel rushed or left behind. The atmosphere of the classes give me confidence to actively contribute in-class; an issue that I was seeking to address at the beginning of the course. I highly recommend this school!!!EDIT: I thought to edit this review after a year of attending classes here. Overall I have been finding the classes very engaging. I love that the classes almost exclusively focus on improving listening and speaking skills, as these are the two components of language acquisition that are the most difficult to hone. I find that my confidence in speaking Japanese has improved monumentally. An added bonus is that you join an equally motivated and engaging community that is also just as interested in Japanese language and culture!
Great school! The teachers and staff are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. Group classes are a lot of fun! Workload isn't too much for someone working full time to manage, but is still plenty to be challenging (in a good way).
I studied at Nunawading Japanese School onsite for a few months and the classroom atmosphere is great. The Sensei's make you feel comfortable and evenly distribute their attention to each student. I had to move away and transitioned to online classes and Vaughan was very helpful in finding me and new class to join. I also did catch up lessons to help me to get to my new classes level. I felt very welcomed into my new class. The content is great and I learn at a steady pace which fits into my busy schedule. Overall, I would highly recommend Nunawading Japanese School to anybody wanting to learn and I plan on continuing my studies with them until the end!
I had been studying for at least over 2+ years now and I can feel my proficiency and understanding of Japanese language improves astronomically. I used to only have a vague understanding of Japanese (through some tv show/anime/manga/novel) but now, I can understand more and more from those media. The teachers are native Japanese and the classes progress at a steady pace with a lot of practical applications. It may seems slow at time but remember that you don't learn a language overnight, it's a lifetime commitment. This school ensure you have that solid foundation.I seriously highly recommend this school if you are interested in learning Japanese! ありがとうございます、先生たち！
I recently finished the beginner level 1 at Nunawading Japanese School and have loved my experience. Having classes over zoom never felt like a hindrance, and every class was challenging and enjoyable. I've learnt japanese on and off, but found the way it's taught here was very practical and made it easier to remember.
I have been attending Nunawading Japanese School's group Japanese classes for a year. The classes are small and very welcoming and the teachers are friendly and energetic! The school was also very helpful during my teaching rounds and organised catch up lessons for me so that I didn't fall behind in class. Prior to starting group classes, I was using an online platform to go through the Genki textbook. I found Nunawading Japanese School far more beneficial for my learning as there was more opportunities to practice speaking and listening in a conversational manner.
I've tried a few different language schools over the years and none have made it as easy or as enjoyable as Nunawading Japanese School. They've structured lessons in a way that will enable to have you basic conversations from very early on which I appreciate. All the teachers are wonderful and patient. I could not recommend them more!
I started with Nunawading Japanese School at the start of 2022. Before I started, I knew nothing about the Japanese language. I don't know how to speak and write the language.Fast forward 6 months, I have learnt so much. I can now write Hiragana and I'm just starting with Katakana.The teachers are very patient and friendly. Encouraging us to converse more in Japanese which I'm getting more confident and comfortable in.I would highly recommend anyone who wants to learn the language to give these people a call.
I have been learn Japanese with Nunawading Japanese school for almost two years and it’s been a pleasant journey. All the Sensei are very dedicated, fun and engaging. Great teachers and learning materials. Highly recommend to anyone who is interested in commencing a new language
The teachers are so energetic and passionate about teaching. I get to class tired and grumpy after work and I'm always amazed at the enthusiasm from the teachers! It's a pity I can't come in with the same energy! 😅The school has shown compassion and flexibility with my personal circumstances. When had to take an extended break from class they were understanding and after I came back they matched me with a similar level class.They also arranged one-on-one catch up sessions for when I felt I was behind! Legend!10/10Cool school.😎
I've been learning at Nunawading Japanese School for about 6 months now, and I can say without a doubt it's one of the best decisions I've made. Staff are great, lessons are fun, and the learning process is welcoming to anyone!
Nunnawadding Japanese School is great place to come if you are looking to learn Japanese. The teachers are all from Japan so you know that you are in good hands learning the writing, words, sentences and grammar correctly.The teachers are also all very friendly and funny. They make a big effort to ensure that the lessons are engaging and interesting and get the content across.Relevant homework is assigned each week and constructive feedback is provided if any questions are had.Each week I look forward to my Japanese class and always have a good time.I highly recommend the school if you are looking to learn Japanese
I've been with the Nunawading Japanese School for just about 6 months and I've enjoyed every momentThe teachers did a great job taking into account my prior knowledge and placed me into a class that has a great balance of things I'm already comfortable with and new pieces of knowledgeThe classes are heaps of fun which is thanks to a combination of engaging, knowledgeable teachers and motivated, friendly classmates. The classes have a good balance of writing and speaking, with the teachers encouraging speaking outside of the planned class topics. It's a great way of teaching that has helped build my confidence in my speaking (which is something I've personally struggled with in self study)I've also enjoyed the small class sizes, it gives the teachers the chance to really engage with every student in a meaningful way and has also allowed me to make quick friendships with all my classmatesThank you to the whole team at Nunawading Japanese School for the learning experience so far, looking forward to learning even more!
The teachers and the atmosphere is awesome. All native Japanese speakers who are passionate about teaching and are extremely patient and enthusiastic. Really great environment to learn!
I've been here for a couple of years and have loved learning Japanese here. The teachers are amazing and the lesson content flows really well from one topic to another. Highly recommend if you're looking to learn Japanese.
Been taking Japanese classes here for the last 2 years and it has been wonderful. Awesome and exciting teachers there that make learning Japanese fun. Highly recommend this place if you're looking somewhere to start learning Japanese.
I have been studying Japanese online at Nunawading Japanese School for just over a year now, the experience so far has been fun and full of laughter and I feel motivated to continue on!There are 7 of us in our weekly online group class and everyone is courteous and helpful. We enjoy learning together, we keep helping and encouraging each other when things get a bit too much for our brains to handle!All the Japanese teachers are patient and are fluent in English, which is helpful for us, beginners! We learn from different teachers and you may wonder who the teacher is for each week, however, most of the time, the teachers are able to follow on from one another with minimal confusion or disruption to the class. My favourite teachers are Mari sensei, Eiko sensei, Kanoko sensei, Mia sensei and Miyuki sensei. せんせいたち、ありがとうございます！Having studied for a year, I can read and write hiragana and katakana confidently; I can have simple conversations in Japanese to introduce myself; I can briefly tell what I did in a day; I ordered my usual sushi over the phone in Japanese at my favourite sushi place in Ivanhoe, two weeks ago!The current group learning and pace suits me well, as I am learning the language as a hobby. For anyone thinking to learn Japanese, definitely worth booking in a trial lesson and/or level check with the school. The helpful school Manager Vaughan-san will sure assist to point you to the right direction!
