Teachers, clubs and study abroad needed for English improvement says MOE panel

According to the Japan Times, a Ministry of Education panel proposed last week that local governments hire 600 more teachers with "excellent English skills" and double the number of 18-year olds who have studied or stayed abroad to around 30,000. The panel also proposed that assistant language teachers participate in club and other activities to improve students' English proficiency.
