Mr. Murakami was invited by Tariq Bin Ziyad Independent Secondary School for Boys to give a briefing on the methods and guidelines for teaching Japanese language to their students and a small ceremony took place in attendance with SEC officials. H.E. Mr. Kenjiro Monji, Ambassador of Japan attended the meeting held between the Principal of Tariq Bin Ziyad Independent Secondary School for Boys, Mr. Hamad Mohamed Al-Mannai, SEC officials and Mr. Murakami and conveyed his thanks and gratitude for implementing the decision with regard to introducing Japanese language at this newly established independent school. Ambassador Monji also expressed great hopes that the incorporation of Japanese language into the independent schools’ curriculum would enable the Qatari youth to enhance their understanding of not only Japanese language but Japanese culture as well, which will help them initiate personal contacts with their Japanese peers and enjoy the fruits of meaningful friendship. On his part, Mr. Al-Mannai thanked Ms. Sabah Ismail Al-Haidoos, Director of Education Institute and Ms. Rima Abu Khadeeja, Director of Curriculum Standards Bureau of the Supreme Education Council for their initiative of introducing Japanese language as one of the optional second language to its schools’ curriculum.
