Hungry For Words Ties Up With Waseda Juku

Hungry For Words Japan this week announced a tie up with Waseda Juku to add a new category to its free online English study service. "Juken Eigo" is the 11th category to be included in the eFlashcard "mail magazine" service, which delivers topic-based vocabulary, accompanied by sound recordings by native English speakers, by e-mail to subscribers. Other topics include Business, Travel, Fashion and TOEIC. The service currently has over 295,000 subscribers. Since 1979, Waseda Juku has been helping high school seniors prepare for entrance exams to top-tier universities. The company has a database of about 100,000 words that are most frequently used in entrance exams, and also a license agreement with Time magazine to mine its contents for test preparation exercises.
