English instruction is about to become an option for the new "Period for Integrated Studies" in the Japanese public schools.

Merner, a member of the authoring committee, will introduce the handbook, share views about the direction public elementary school English seems to be heading, and introduce results of a survey about the current situation in schools which have already implemented English.
