Greetings from Bangalore Nihongo Kyooshi-kai. For the past few years, we have seen a steady increase in the learners of Japanese language. This growth can be attributed to the close cultural and economic ties between India and Japan. Japanese language skills in the IT, Hospitality and other sectors are also much in demand, and this is evident from the large number of students appearing for the JLPT every year. As a Japanese Language Teachers Association, we receive a lot of enquiries from various persons for learning this language. Though we are aware of the few private institutes in Bangalore, we need to make a concerted effort to standardize this information and make it available to persons who are eager to learn Japanese. We would like to host this information on our BNK web page to make it easier for anyone looking for a Japanese language institute. Please find attached a questionnaire to be filled by the Institute. Once we receive the filled questionnaire, our committee member will visit the respective school and have a personal talk with the head of the institute. Kindly note that this process may take 6-8 weeks from receiving your filled questionnaire. We need your support and encouragement in this exercise as all of us are working towards the same goal – promoting Japanese language and culture in Bangalore.
