Showing the Way in Shiga

Today's Daily Yomiuri Society column carries a story on Maibara High School, located in a rural part of Shiga Prefecture and one of 16 Super English Language High (SELHi) schools chosen by the education ministry. Students took English debate classes twice a week during the last school year, one of several measures the school has introduced to develop a new approach to the English curriculum. Other changes in this experimental environment include halving class size, inviting guest speakers and participating in overnight English camps.
