Sesame Street language school franchises to open around Japan

Berlitz currently has a contract to use Sesame Street characters, but this will end next year and Nagase Brothers will have an exclusive contract. The Nikkei Shimbun reports that the contract is for ten years and is costing 3 billion yen.
