NOVA students form support group

Students of failed English conversation giant NOVA Corp. have formed a support group, and are urging others to join them.

The NOVA Seito no Kai was formed over the weekend by students of the failed chain.

Organizers say they aim to work collectively to negotiate with NOVA’s apparent savior, Nagoya-based company G.communication grp. and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry to ensure they are treated fairly by the failed company’s new operators.

G.communication grp. has promised to allow students to take classes they had paid NOVA for, as well as to offer jobs to the failed chain’s teachers.

The NOVA students’ support group is calling on all students involved with the English conversation chain to join its ranks, including those who were fighting the company over refunds for canceling contracts before they had been completed.
