Todai Teams With Princeton Review

The Princeton Review of Japan office recently announced a new TOEFL course aimed at juniors and seniors in the School of Engineering at Tokyo University (known as Todai). The engineering department introduced an English-language section to the entrance exam for its graduate school this year, in conjunction with the university's new "Special English Lesson" program. The aim of the TOEFL course is to help prepare Todai engineering students who are planning to study abroad, in particular for an MBA in the US. The course, for third and fourth-year students, is optional and will be taught by Japanese lecturers. Running for approximately three months (20 2-hour lessons), it will focus on language aspects specific to TOEFL, test techniques, and general ways to improve test scores. With a new speaking section being introduced to the TOEFL next year, Japanese universities are having to deal with the shift in language-learning needs of their students. The Princeton Review of Japan was established in 1989 and helps students prepare for tests such as GMAT, GRE and SAT as well as TOEFL. The distinguishing feature of its TOEFL course is its focus on "strategy" for improving test scores in a short period of time.
