Huh?

Government to ensure quality?

Oh my.

I guess it’s a quality not so far from that of foreign languages, mostly English or should I write almost only English. So it’s not to ensure but beforehand to establish any. lol

In 2019, the Tokyo University of Social Welfare, which accepted graduates of Japanese-language schools who could not enter other universities due to their poor Japanese skills, was found to have lost contact with more than 1,000 students from abroad in the three years from fiscal 2016.

They must have lost their fax numbers

Oh jeez. They are going to force everyone to use out of date textbooks and teach you to speak Japanese that nobody even uses anymore.

Schools would be required every fiscal year to report to the ministry the contents of the lessons, the enrollment status of the students and other details.

Why am I not surprised? The only solution they can think of is more paperwork.

And one that says, "the government is not responsible for any problem that arise from this school..."

Run only by the big companies because all the mom and pop schools have been eating into their profits. The same way big tech companies began to ruin Akihabara!

Welcome to 1984, the government will certainly make these schools double plus good

"A certified Japanese-language school needs to meet standards on the number of teachers, facility's space and educational content"

Educational content can be very problematic, I guess, because the requirement of different departments also vary a lot.

Personally, I can say that all my Japanese teachers were very tolerant once they decide that you're doing your best and you're sincere.
