🌜AICJ中学高等学校の先生来園!🌛 🌜AICJ Junior & Senior High School teacher visit!🌛



【参照:文科省 平成30年度「英語教育実施状況調査」の結果について】

According to research conducted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology, the level of English ability of 42.6% junior high school students nationwide is Eiken 3rd level. For high school students, 40.2 % passed Eiken pre-2nd level.

Looking at the records of junior high school English teachers, 36.2 % passed Eiken pre-1st level. For high school English teachers, 68.2% passed. There was no data regarding Eiken 1st level, but the passing rate is about 10%, so the actual number of English teachers who have Eiken 1st level is probably less than 10%.








It is difficult even for English subject teachers to pass Eiken 1st and pre-1st level tests.

There is a school in Hiroshima, where 23 of the students passed the Eiken 1st level and 142 students also passed the pre-1st level. Many of the students spoke zero English when they first enrolled in the school.

The school is called AICJ Junior & Senior High School. This school implements English immersion education as well as the International Baccalaureate program.


A teacher from AICJ visited our preschool! He is a great and experienced teacher whom I respect so much. It has been about 10 years since we last met. During the visit, we talked about old times😄


According to him, the secret of the high English proficiency at AICJ is due to the high-quality English education by native English speakers, and the environment is full of English. Of course, the students’ efforts toward improving their English by studying new vocabulary is also important.


By the way, research by Eiken Foundation of Japan indicates that the earlier one starts studying English, the more able one becomes in passing the higher grades such as Eiken 1st level or pre 1st level.




Although there are age differences between students of AICJ and MIP, there are some things both institutions have in common. For children to academically succeed after graduating from our preschool and even after they become adults as lifelong learners, early childhood education is extremely important. We strive to offer high-quality education and childcare so that we can nurture children’s abilities, growth, and also their non-cognitive skills development.
