Cute maids help students take up programming in Japanese school

Programming and maid cafes may sound like two very different things, but a school in Shibuya, Tokyo managed to combine them. They now offer programming lessons with cute maids in frilly outfits.
MadeInMaidFamily managed to take advantage of the made cafe trend and put a little spin on their programming courses. When students enter the premises, they are greeted with a warm “Okaeri nasaimase” (welcome home) from the in-house maids, as if they walked into a regular maid cafe, reports SoraNews24.
More than just giving entertainment for the students, the maids also study and refer tothem as “senpai” or “upperclassman.”
Like in regular maid cafes, the maids interact with students. They ask questions, collaborate and offer help when they can.
The proponents of MadeInMaidFamily believe that they are also giving a service to the maids as much as to the paying students. Because maids study with the students, they are given the opportunity to increase their marketable skills for when they choose to leave the maid business behind.
Maid cafes generally value youth and appearance, so maids usually change occupations past their mid-20s.
Those interested to attend class with a pretty maid can find MadeInMaidFamily within the Gifted Academy school in Shibuya, Tokyo. A three-hour session costs 2000 yen (about P900). It includes a one-hour interaction time with classmate maids. Reservations can be done on their Japanese website. Alfred Bayle/JB
