The Japanese nation has been deeply grieved by the Great Tohoku Earthquake. All members of
Maxwell English pray for the victims and survivors of this tragedy. We will make every effort to bear the burden and effort of Japan’s recovery.
Some students and friends may be interested what happened on the inside of Maxwell English

By far the largest problem came from outside Japan. Many of our teachers’ parents demanded
their children return immediately. Parents in other countries believed their children were
in great danger and may be killed by earthquake, tsunami or nuclear disaster at any moment.
Parents’ concern was fueled by foreign media hysteria, replaying the same video. Actually,
there was great panic among foreigners in Japan. News reports showed airports full of
foreigners leaving. The question for foreigners was ‘Should I evacuate while I still have a
chance?’ We all knew that in case of a nuclear disaster, it would become impossible to leave.
