It is strongly recommended that, at the beginning of your studies, you take the entry-level test (tasokoe) provided by the school, to see whether you need the English Prep course. The entry-level test is not needed if you have received grade L, E or M in the English matriculation exam, and this was less that ten years ago. The English Prep course can be done either before or at the same time as this English for Work course.
