about the language quest


Select Display Language:



Learning a language is one of the most intense personal journeys you’ll ever embark on. It opens up gateways to new cultures, friends, experiences, new ways of thinking, and dreams too. It can completely change your life if you want it to. Everyone has their own motives for studying language, what about you?

Welcome to The Language Quest, I’m Aaron and I want to join you on your language adventure. Whether you’re here as a complete beginner in Japanese, or if you have already begun your language journey, I want to support you every step of the way. There is a huge world full of adventures waiting for you.

Why study Japanese?


“Why did you choose to study Japanese?” is a question that I get asked a lot, by a lot of different people actually; potential employers, family, friends, even people who I’ve served at the supermarket. It’s a simple one sentence question, without a one-sentence answer, unless you answer “because I like anime.” It’s certainly a question where everyone will have their own story to tell, coupled with plenty of unique inspirations and experiences. If I were to play this question at its own game and answer with a one-sentence response myself though however, I would say; because

  I love the adventure of language.

And that is exactly what language is to me, it’s what Japanese is to me. It’s a never-ending life-altering adventure that is packed with exciting (and embarrassing) experiences. Through learning a language you can discover unique phrases and expressions that are absent in your native language. Committing yourself to learn a new language equips you with the foundation necessary for stepping into a new realm where you can forge relationships and connections with people from various cultures you never thought possible. But that just scratches the surface! I’ve yet to mention the personal development that comes along with this challenge. Learning a language abroad is more than just a chance to become immersed in the culture of the language. Studying abroad puts you in the middle of a pool of opportunities just waiting to be explored, and dreams to be discovered. 

My Mission


I want to give you the same opportunity I had to experience a life-changing adventure. Plenty of sites provide fantastic information on Japanese culture, language learning and available scholarship programs. My mission is to not only provide everyone curious about Japanese culture and language learning with the content, and inspiration they need to get started, but to go one step further. So, I am building a Japanese language study scholarship program to support you in going to Japan. You can find out more information and register your interest in the upcoming scholarship program here!

Now it’s time for you to embark on your own adventure, explore your own journey, and start and fulfil your own language quest.
