TOKYO – September 15, 2021
EdulinX Corporation (Head Office: Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President: Peter A. Owans), a provider of EdTech solutions for English language learning and human resources development, launched a new English e-learning course, “WSJ Business News Reading”, on September 15, 2021. The course will use news content from The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), a global business and finance publication.
The e-learning course is designed to help students improve their English reading skills and keep up with the latest global business news by providing them with English language articles from The Wall Street Journal. As part of the course material, students will have access to WSJ’s trusted news articles on a wide variety of topics such as global finance, business, technology, and social issues. Students will also enjoy a yearly subscription to WSJ’s digital edition, allowing them to apply the reading skills they’ve developed during the course.
The course consists of 30 reading lessons and three videos. Each lesson is based on a WSJ article and includes exercises for strengthening vocabulary, listening comprehension, reading comprehension (using articles from the Japanese edition of the Wall Street Journal), and tests. It is available on PC, tablet and smartphone, and students can study anytime, anywhere.
