Abstract If we are to boost language training at postgraduate level in Australia, we need to continue the push towards mass exposure. Some may argue that advanced training of this kind is more appropriately carried out in Japan itself, and the NALSS (National Asian Languages Scholarship Scheme) did for several years in the early 1990s fund top language students and language teachers to undertake advanced in-country language training. Many people who seek advanced language training, however, are teachers or others who do not have the flexibility to pack up and move to Japan for a year, and who wish to continue their studies in their home locations. We should from now on be looking more to meet the needs of this group, in a series of coursework postgraduate qualifications for people who already have Languages other than English (LOTE) teaching methodology expertise or who just want to advance their language skills.
