English for Fat People?

One diet salon is exploiting the current concerns about metabolic syndrome with the perennial need for English. The diet salon, Toranomon Metabo-Care Center, has started an English school with "custom-made lessons". People can learn English and take measure to prevent "metabo".

The school touts the fact that it has a teacher with experience of living in the US who can understand the weak points of Japanese... No mention is made of whether TPR is a method of choice, or whether they use particularly heavy textbooks.
