Basic subjects group: Language subjects
The objective of these classes is to master English with strong speaking and listening abilities.
In a repetitive manner, students work on the four basic elements of language education: listening, speaking, reading, and writing and acquire practical English skills.
In particular, all students of the University must take the NSE (Native Speaker of English) course, which focuses on communication and is designed for students to better learn to speak and understand English.
Class grouping by using TOEIC as barometer in April of the year of admission and the end of January in the following year enables students to attend classes suitable for their own level and verify their progress in English-language skills.
