Hello. I hope you are almost ready for New Year’s. 2015 is just around the corner. The students at HIUC Osaka are now on winter break. Hopefully they are spending some of their time studying and some of their time relaxing. I know that most of the students have a number of assignments that are due in the beginning of January, so they had better balance their time carefully.
Last week, some of the students took the winter TOEFL course. This is a short intensive course that gives them a chance to work on TOEFL skills. They take three classes a day for a few days. The classes focus on skills and strategies that will help the students improve their test scores. For students who take the ITP TOEFL course, there is a large focus on grammar related skills. The classes cover a lot of information, so they can be pretty tiring, but the students get a lot of useful test taking practice and skills.
Have a good and safe holiday season.
