秋のテストは受験生が多く、すでに65歳で定年となった私にもまだ応援的に試験官を務めるよう今回も依頼がきました。2次面接テスト約400会場の内、三原、尾道地区の会場は尾道中学校・高校が試験会場です。
市内の小・中・高校での実用英語学習においても英検面接試験官経験者などによる支援制度ができればいいな、と思っています。
It is held 3 days later on November 9th (Sunday) all over Japan for the examinees who have passed the first-stage test last month on October 12. I am one of the examiners again this time though I retired from employment at the age of 65 after serving for 25 years. It is because they have too many examinees for the current working examiners.

Eiken-administered (primary) tests are taken by more than 2 million examinees annually at 18,000 locations all over Japan and the second-stage tests at about 400 locations in about 230 cities.
