The Osaka University of Foreign Studies last Friday launched a new course that uses the Daily Yomiuri as class material. The newspaper reported on Saturday that the first lecturer for the course was Masashi Iiyama, head of the paper's Osaka bureau, and his class was attended by about 500 students. iiyama spoke about his time as a correspondent in Brazil and the US and looked at the importance of being able to gather information in English. Other former foreign correspondents will give lectures during the year. The class is called "The Daily Yomiuri - International Journalism" and aims to improve students' English abilities and deepen their understanding of global issues by focusing on English articles on world events. The course was set up and funded by the newspaper.
