SAT Subject Test in Japanese - December Practice


Students in our intermediate and advanced classes will have the opportunity in December to take a practice version of the SAT Subject Test in Japanese.  This unique opportunity is being offered through an Educational Testing Service initiative to encourage students studying Japanese to take the exam.  Students will take the hour-long exam during class and will have access to results the same day, along with feedback on different questions.  The date of this exam will be announced in November, and the exam will be administered in early December.
