KidZania, a well-known kids theme park located in Tokyo, has launched an English Activity Program designed to immerse children in the English of pizza-making, photography, soccer and other activities. The program is conducted completely in English and runs for three hours.
Targeting kids in the 5th and 6th grades, (where English has just been introduced as a compulsory subject) a three-hour session costs 6,800 per child. Each group is limited to six people.
According to KidZania, the program has proved popular and upon launch attracted 60 kids in 10 days. The company hopes for 5,000 kids a year to take part, and plans to introduce the program at KidZania Koshien, near Osaka at the end of this year.
