The News According to Grace

Publishing company Toppan and Internet firm Netlife have launched a new online service for English learners. The service is part of Toppan's information distribution 'Bitway' site and is based around a weekly English-language news article provided by Reuters and AP, and read by TV personality Hiroko Grace. The articles are used as the basis of lessons developed by Waseda University professor Akio Fujii. These include vocabulary quizzes and mini listening tests. The members-only service is aimed at students of all levels, from beginners to those doing TOEIC test preparation, and costs ¥950 a month. Bitway site.
