And also it is necessary to set up an institution with an intensive course for Japanese language outside schools.

Few international students participate in extracurricular activities, such as club activities and a students participate in extracurricular activities, such as club activities and a student council. Those activities are a good chance to have interchange of ideas and make friends with each other. The participation in extracurricular activities should be promoted in junior high schools.
