All students are required to obtain the credit for ONE of either English 5, English 6, or English 7. English 5 is a course that requires submission of the TOEIC test score in order for credit to be granted. No attendance is necessary apart from the compulsory orientation session in the first week. Students register for this course in the fifth term of the old curriculum (i.e. the first and second quarters of their third academic year). The credits are given to those who have achieved or exceeded the minimum required TOEIC score set by each Department, and who have submitted their score by the deadline. This is one of the old curriculum courses offered on a semester basis.
This course aims at comprehensively improving students' English skills so that they should be able to achieve a TOEIC score well above the required minimum.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
・ develop overall English proficiency, with particular emphasis on listening and reading skills.
・ achieve or exceed the minimum required TOEIC score set by each Department.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
The grades are marked on a hundred-point scale according to the Tokyo Tech TOEIC Score Conversion Table.
