カリキュラムの理論及び背景

英検1級はノンネイティブが目指す英語力の1つの大きなマイルストーンとなります。このレベルは、基本的には多くの英米の大学院留学が認められるIELTS7.0相当の英語力に相当します。英検®協会が実施する実用英語技能検定も4技能をしっかり測定できる形式に変わってきています。英検1級の魅力はIELTSやTOEFLに比べれば試験の費用がリーズナブルであること、ILETSやTOEFLと違い有効期限などがなく一生モノの資格であることが挙げられます。

バリューイングリッシュでは、学長が認定する形で講師を選抜し ライティング対策講座を受けもらっています。正直申し上げて、英検準1級までは自信を持ってオススメできますが、英検1級のライティングでは少し不安もございます。もちろん開講する以上、IELTS 7.0以上のライティングに相応しい採点ができているか?学長自らチェックしております。但し、合格するに十分なライティングを身に付けていただくことはできますが、「完璧」な英文を作成することを目的とした講座ではないことはご留意ください。当校を活用いただき英検準1級に合格された受講生からの強い要望をいただいており、この度開講の運びとなりました。

コースの詳細及びお申し込みはこちらからお願い致します。

早速、お待ちいただいていたお客様にお試しいただきましたので、サンプルとしてご紹介させていただくことになりました。

TOPIC

Should developed nations encourage immigration from other countries?

Student’s answer

It has been highly controversial whether or not developed nations should encourage immigration from other countries. In United States, there are numerous illegal immigrants across the country, and it has put U.S. in trouble. Therefore, it would be necessary to enact sound regulations and to prevent illegal immigrants and overpopulation which could result in stagnant economy. However, considering realization of world prosperity, securing workforce in a cost-efficient way, and technological benefits of multiculturalism, I’m confident that developed nations should proactively accept immigration from other countries.

Firstly,accepting immigration from third nations will ensure the immigrants’ welfare. As developed countries have a large amount of food, sharing it with people from third countries could decrease the gap between the rich and the poor. That would make it possible to realize global stabilization and prosperity.

Secondly, in the long run, it can be difficult for aging nations with low birth rate such as Japan to maintain enough workers in every industry. However, if they employ competent experts from other countries, they can develop high-level productivity with low personnel expenses. Consequently, it would facilitate further advancement of the countries.

Lastly, allowing immigration from other countries would make the receptionist nations multicultural. In general, in societies with various ethnic groups, people see things in such a different way that it is possible to accomplish revolutionary invention and advance technology. Indeed, U.S. has made a variety of accomplishments and contributed to advancement of technology.

For the above three reasons, I strongly think that developed nations should encourage immigration from other countries. (256 words)

SUGGESTED ESSAY BASED ON ORIGINAL IDEA

Migration has been a growing trend especially for those who are from developing countries. However, the subject has been highly controversial as to whether or not developed countries should encourage it. In the case of the U.S., the country has seen a lot of trouble catering to migrants dreaming to be in the land of the free. However, considering realization of world prosperity, securing workforce in a cost-efficient way, and technological benefits of multiculturalism, I agree that developed nations should proactively accept immigration from other countries.

First, global stabilization and world prosperity will be realized if developed countries encourage immigration. Those who come from developing nations will have higher chances of getting more than enough food in particular given the abundance from that of the third countries. Thus, the gap between the rich and the poor is bridged.

Second, a stable, cost-efficient workforce is essential for a country to maintain is economy. For instance, an economically strong country like Japan is in dire need of people given its rising aging population. This means encouraging competent people to migrant will also alleviate the condition without compromising productivity.

Third, as the world is vast space for everybody, encouraging immigration will let everyone learn and discover the diversity of cultures. This means a better understanding of ethnicity that would hopefully lead to respecting one another more while reaping technological benefits.

Thus, I strongly think that developed nations should encourage immigration from other countries. (240 words)
