Course description and aims

All students are required to obtain the credits for ONE of either English 5, English 6, or English 7. Students who have failed English 5 register for this course in the sixth term of the old curriculum (i.e. the third and fourth quarters of their third academic year). This is one of the old curriculum courses offered on a semester basis.

By offering TOEIC-style exercises, this course aims at comprehensively improving students' English skills, expanding their vocabulary and strengthening their knowledge of grammar.
