In April 2011, the long-awaited elementary school MEXT reforms came into effect. Fifth and sixth grade students now have to take a class of "Gaikokugo Katsudo" every week. These changes have had an impact on all teachers of English to children - at private language schools, pre-schools or elementary schools.

This was a positive move for education in Japan and will hopefully help to nurture a new generation of outward-looking Japanese people in the years to come. However, it was not clear exactly how the classes should be taught and indeed what should be done.

Based on its mission to give back to education and to support language teachers, Oxford University Press embarked on a nationwide tour last year visiting 60 cities in all 47 prefectures.

This summer, Oxford will hold a second tour of 30 cities across the country with presentations on teaching pre-schoolers and children up to the age of 12. With a team of teachers and teacher-trainers who are in the classroom every week, our aim is to help teachers of children to get the best out of whatever materials they are using in their English classroom.

So whether you live in Hokkaido or Hokuriku, Okinawa or Okayama, don't delay, book your free place today!
