Business strategist predicts strong year for small and medium-sized language schools

The managing director of Smart Partners KK predicts that small and medium-sized language schools should benefit from the probable increase in demand for English among those who have been laid off or who are unable to get jobs due to the global financial crisis. He says that many of these people have the time and money to spend on improving their skills, and small and medium-sized language schools have the flexibility to respond to the changing situation.

The number of small and medium-sized language schools has been rapidly increasing over the last few years. Many are worried about how they will be affected by the financial crisis, but it seems that it may create opportunities for them.
