Saitama School to Help Students Take Extra STEP

Saturday's Daily Yomiuri reported that a Saitama Prefecture high school is to become the first to prepare students for English proficiency tests, such as TOEFL, TOEIC and STEP. Warabi Prefectural High School will offer the classes, each with no more than 15 students, to the 40 students in each grade majoring in foreign languages. The school aims for all students to pass at least the 2nd Grade STEP Test by graduation, a target recently set by the education ministry, and for 10% to reach the Pre-1st Grade level.
