Last year SKE48 member Goto Rara reported that she had passed the EIKEN Grade 1 exam in Practiced English and finally got the certificate.
EIKEN is one of the most widely used English language test programs in Japan, Level 1 is the highest level that can be achieved. Students should be able to understand and use English in a variety of social, professional and educational situations. However, EIKEN’s English training is now criticised as not leading to the desired results. (The Japan Times).
