Kobe College Focuses on Interpretation

Yesterday's Daily Yomiuri carried an article on the teaching of English interpretation skills at Kobe College. The three-year course has been offered to sophomores and above in all departments at the women's college since April, though it is an extension of a course run by the English department for the last three years. It has been chosen by the education ministry for its Support Program for Contemporary Educational Needs ("Gendai GP"), launched last September. The course has proved popular with students, and TOEIC scores had to be used to select those who could join.
