English Listening Test Prep

Online education solutions provider Alps System Integration (ALSI) has a developed program to help students prepare for the English listening test on the national university entrance examination. Developed with Obunsha Digital Institute, the "Senta Shiken Eigo Listening Kanzen Koryaku" comes in two formats. One is compatible with ALSI's "SMART-HTML" e-learning system, used at many high schools, and will be sold on a licensing basis; the other is available through the company's educational portal site for a ¥340 monthly fee. The program includes some 375 questions and allows for practice at two levels as well as mock tests. It goes on sale on August 19. The so-called "sentaa shiken," which is sat annually by some 520,000 applicants to over 560 universities and junior colleges, will include an English listening section from next year.
