Genesis International College–Steady Steps
GIC held an English intensive seminar called the “TOEFL Speaking Seminar” last summer. This three-day seminar was the first step toward starting an actual college. We also had an “English Language Intensive (ELI)” this March and are now planning to have another one this coming August.
In attendance, were business people as well as high school and university students. Through these seminars, we came to understand the importance of English education in Japan and it deepened our understanding of the significance of what we are doing.
We are hoping to recruit more students for the next seminar and as we continue to take steady steps to opening a college.
