These aren’t particularly tough restrictions – an average attendance rate below 50 percent literally means that on average, all students come to less than half of their Japanese classes, which would be an incredibly bad situation for a language school – but they’re a good start. For Japanese language schools, receiving government accreditation is an extremely difficult process (which GenkiJACS finally managed to complete last year, after more than 10 years in business!), but once a language school is accredited, there seem to be very few continuing checks on school quality. We are happy to hear about any further measures to ensure that bad language schools are pushed out of the industry, and good schools supported. The future of the Japanese language school industry in Japan is bright!
