ELS Japan Expanding

ELS International College recently announced that it has started construction of a new language center in Shinjuku, set to open in April 2005. Run by ELS Japan, the Japan franchise of a U.S. company, itself a subsidiary of Berlitz International, ELS language centers specialize in preparing Japanese students for entrance to some 600 universities and colleges throughout the U.S. Completion of the prescribed course earns graduates an exemption from the TOEFL test required by affiliated American universities. The entrance fee is ¥150,000 and annual tuition is approx. ¥1.6 million. ELS plans to have 100 students enrolled by April 2005 and increase that number to 500 by April 2008, with sales of approx. ¥1 billion.
