All students are required to obtain the credit for ONE of either English 5, English 6, or English 7. Students who have failed both English 5 and English 6 register for this course in the seventh term of the old curriculum (i.e. the first and second quarters of their fourth 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.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
・ expand their vocabulary and improve their knowledge of grammar.
・ develop overall English proficiency, with particular emphasis on listening and reading skills.
