Japanese government mulls English training in US for teachers

The Daily Yomiuri reports that the government is discussing sending young Japanese teachers to the USA to learn English. This is in line with Prime Minister Naoto Kan's plans to expand cultural, intellectual and human exchanges between Japan and the USA.

President Barack Obama will be visiting Japan in the middle of November and it is hoped that a wide-ranging agreement on bilateral ties, including the English-teacher plan, will be concluded.
