Teach Japanese-language

As guidance from a single teacher can influence a number of students, the Japan Foundation conducts programs aimed at enhancing the teaching skills of educators who teach the Japanese-language. The Japan Foundation also provides grants to institutions overseas and supports events to promote Japanese-language education.
