The Japanese Language Learning Support System for Toyota City (JLLSSTC) was established in 2008, and is developed and managed by Toyota City with the help of Nagoya University, Toyota International Association, as well as local community support and corporate aid.
The System's main objective is in strengthening local community ties through the development and promotion of a holistic system that helps foreigners living or working in Toyota City master the Japanese language, up to a level of proficiency necessary to handle everyday situations. The System aims to be instrumental in realizing a truly multicultural society by providing foreigner and Japanese residents more opportunities to interact, and equip both with the communication skills necessary for mutual understanding. Furthermore, the System hopes to gain adoption at community and national levels by making details of its processes and findings available.
