Guiding the Locals

English conversation teachers who were guiding foreign tourists around the Aichi World Expo are now conducting an English tour for Japanese visitors, according to Asahi.com. Teachers from Ai For You, a local company which dispatches language teachers, came up wthe idea and started the tour in June. So far, about 30 people have taken part. The teacher/guides speak Japanese so the tour is good even for Japanese with low-level English. Different courses are available, with the "celeb" course providing a CD with a recording of the day's conversation.
