LIOJ to Close, Reopen as LIOJ-II

Jim Kahny will be stepping down as director of Language Institute of Japan (LIOJ) at the end of March, and the institute in its present form will close. From April 1, a new school, "LIOJ-II," will begin, and a triumvirate of Keisuke Nakayama (CEO), Kazumi Masuda (general manager), and Stuart Abrahamson (director of studies) will form the new leadership team. The 2004 academic year will be a transitional period for LIOJ-II and few changes are planned. Kahny says, "It has been my great honor to serve as director of LIOJ for the past eight years. It has been a privilege to work with students and participants in all our programs. I have enjoyed working alongside many dedicated teachers and office personnel. I am grateful to the MRA Foundation for the opportunity to learn so many things at LIOJ. To those responsible for implementing LIOJ-II, I extend my best wishes for a happy, healthy future."
