Many pages have audio recordings of important phrases you may need to say in each situation and you can download and print out all the Japanese phrases covered in this guide so that you can take it with you but the language components are kept minimal with this course. (If you are interested in learning Japanese at this opportunity, I recommend you do the Travellers’ Japanese course instead of this one.)

As this uses the “Moodle” platform, if you download and install the the “Moodle App” from App Store or Google Play, you can access the guide from your mobile device via the App anywhere you are, any time you like as long as you are connected to the Internet!


This course is currently offered for AUD 9.95 (normally AUD 14.95) and that will allow you to access the contents for 26 weeks from the time your payment is processed.

“How to Get Started with Moodle” is found here.

If you decide to start with “Survival Japanese with Traveling Tips” and decide to learn more phrases with “Travellers’ Japanese” while you are still enrolled in the “Guide,” you will get a 20% discount on the “Travellers’ Course” fee!
