English Education has been slowly making it's way into Japanese Elementary Schools. First, with one-shot style visits, and now as a one class hour per week subject for 5th and 6th graders. Starting this April the Elementary English program will be undergoing it's first big change since it's inception three years ago: a new textbook.
