Gap-Fill Activity

The Daily Yomiuri's "Language Connection" column this week looked at perhaps the biggest talking point in English education these days - the introduction of English to the elementary school curriculum. Among the topics discussed in "Fill gaps in English-teaching environments" was a perceived difference in enthusiasm for early English education between western and eastern Japan. In particular it looked at the work of Reiko Matsukawa, a member of the Planning and Evaluation Committee for the education ministry's pilot schools.
