Date: Sunday, May 12th, 2019 Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Toshihito Fujinuma and Mona Kumata

ETJ Tokyo is holding its 2nd meeting of the year. Are you confused about Eiken and other standardized tests that your students take/need? Feel a bit lost on which tests matter and how to prepare your students? Want to learn which test can greatly help a student's academic career and chances of acceptance for JHS/SHS? Toshihito and Mona will lead a special 90-mintue presentation that will answer all those questions in addition to time for practice test taking. The future of English education in public schools is changing and tests are as well. Come get all your questions answered and test your own knowledge of these mystifying tests!

The remaining meeting time will be used as a general meeting for ETJ Tokyo and for anyone wanting to join the committee or offer ideas for future events. If you want to get more involved with ETJ or have ideas--please join the planning meeting.
