Hey there, I wonder if anyone could help me out?

I'm looking for the following document either online or to order:

新しい学習指導要領 or atarashii gakushuu shidou youryou

These are the new curriculum guidelines that MEXT issued in 2009, for implementation in 2011. I'm interested in the section that outlines the new elementary curriculum with regard to Foreign Language Activities.

I doubt there's a full English translation, but I've looked on the MEXT website and couldn't find the actual document in Japanese. I've seen numerous references to the document in articles and papers, but when I follow the online links I always end up at a generic page and not the actual document.

Does anyone have any idea where I could get hold of this document?

Thanks for any help offered.

Thanks Glenski, the references at the bottom of the first article took me to where I wanted to be. Much appreciated!
