The Government of Japan will provide Rs. 12 million under its Grant Assistance for Cultural Grassroots Project to set up a Japanese Language Laboratory at the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities, Rajarata University of Sri Lanka.

The Grant Contract was signed between Akira Sugiyama, Ambassador of Japan in Sri Lanka and Dr. B.A. Karunaratne, Vice Chancellor of Rajarata University of Sri Lanka, on February 27 at the Japanese Ambassador’s residence in Colombo. Town Planning, Water Supply and Higher Education Minister Rauff Hakeem and other distinguished guests were present.

As Japan prepares for accepting more foreign workers, this grant assistance provides equipment for practical Japanese language education. Together with the new method called “Active learning” (group work on hexagon desk) and a new textbook published by Japan Foundation, it is expected that this project would place Rajarata University as the focal point of practical Japanese language education.
