●担当者からの言葉(Webページのみ表示)

Reading remains our most important method for understanding the world and ourselves and for encountering the most diverse ideas. Let’s deepen our cross-cultural understanding as we further develop our English reading and discussion skills. In the process, perhaps we can learn to enjoy reading more.
