New Children’s English Picture Dictionary

(Japan) Gunma Kokusai Academy (GKA), which was launched in 2005 to offer a 12-year English immersion program, has recently written 'Kodomo Eigo Ejiten A' (Children's English Picture Dictionary A) in conjunction with major publisher, Obunsha Co. The dictionary incorporates about 250 basic words that are required learning for American children from ages 4 to 7. Approximately 300 copies have been purchased by the Ota Municipal Board of Education for distribution amongst 26 primary schools to be used as part of English studies. GKA and Obunsha Co will evaluate and refine the dictionary based on feedback from teachers, aiming for public release in the 2007 school year.
