Online English for Professionals

A new online English-learning system has been developed by The Institute for Professional English Communication (IPEC), an NPO based in Tokyo. Aimed mainly at engineers, the system requires users to attach a camera, microphone and other devices to their computer. It provides "man-to-man" lessons around the clock. The system utilizes teaching materials used in the US to assess the communication skills of doctors, engineers and other professionals. IPEC offers online tests that certify students' listening ability and technical vocabulary. The new system is also designed to help students prepare for the tests.
