Independent schools to add Japanese as second language this fall
Students at Qatar’s independent schools will soon get to enroll in Japanese as a second language, the country’s ambassador has said.
Gulf Times reports:
“Students can be a bridge between many cultures and we are hoping that by the time we begin teaching Japanese language in Independent schools here, students can take the advantage to learn about Japanese culture, and hopefully the language will be revived in Qatar,” (Japanese Ambassador Kenjiro) Monji said.
The initiative is part of Qatar and Japan’s ongoing efforts to develop strong business and cultural ties.
My question is – where will Qatar find all these Japanese-language instructors by September?
