Outline of the event

As the globalization of higher education accelerates, such as the enhancement of support for international students and the promotion of collaborative projects with overseas universities, it can be said that the era has finally arrived in which the English proficiency of university faculty and staff is indispensable as a basic ability. This program will be implemented from 2013 with the aim of not only improving the English proficiency of faculty and staff of member universities and junior colleges that can respond to such times, but also raising their awareness of language learning in the future.

English Voice Training

We invite charismatic lecturer Kazuhiro Takemura, who is popular at ALC seminars, etc., to learn the theory, practice, and application of English pronunciation. This program can accommodate a wide range of students, from beginners to advanced learners who want to learn more natural English pronunciation. In addition, the principle that "you can only hear sounds that can be pronounced" is expected to dramatically improve your listening skills.
