Roundup: Nunan in Tokyo, Murphy on his way, NOVA and GEOS news, ALC results

Visiting dignitaries: David Nunan is in town for this weekend's invitation-only "Amazing Minds" event organized by Pearson Kirihara. Raymond Murphy, author of English Grammar in Use, visits Tokyo at the end of the month for an event at Kinokuniya to celebrate the book's 25th anniversary. The event is aimed at individual Japanese users of the book.

NOVA and GEOS are once again under the control of the same man. The complex story is told by Let's Japan.

ALC posted its results for its latest fiscal year, making a loss of 38 million yen (around 380,000 dollars), which whilst not sounding good is a vast improvement on the 168 million yen they lost last year.
