New Program for Japanese in U.S.

A local news site in Alabama ran an article yesterday on a new language program for foreigners beginning at Jacksonville State University that will start with 30 Japanese students. "The JSU Language Institute as it'll be called aims to build the English skills of students who want to study in the United States but who haven't scored well enough on a language test to be admitted. After completing the program, they'll enroll as regular JSU students." Though the original aim of the program was to deal with a growing Hispanic population in the region, it will begin with the Japanese students. The university has contracted with a private firm in Japan to recruit the students.
