There is concern that international students studying Japanese in Australia are seriously disadvantaged by having to learn a foreign language through the medium of another, imperfectly-mastered, foreign language. This paper tests the validity of these concerns through comparative evaluation of the frequency and type of errors made in written texts by Australian and international students.
