実用英語教育に熱心な校長先生  A school principal enthusiastic for practical English education

20年近く実用英語検定試験、二次面接試験でご一緒した先生が私の母校中学校に校長として赴任しておられます。
そして引き続き熱心に実用英語学習を指導しておられるようです。
かつて尾道は英語検定試験には協力的ではなく2次面接試験の受験会場もありませんでした。
私が前市長に実情を話し、尾道市が二次面接試験会場の誘致のための努力をし、尾道中学校・高校が受験会場を引き受け、尾道での英検二次面接受験が可能となったのがほんの十年ほど前でした。(実用英検の歴史は50数年です。)
これで尾道は英検受験体制と実用英語教育の面でやっと標準的なレベルになったような気がします。
An English teacher, with whom I had been serving for the nationwide English proficiency test for about 20 years as oral English examiners, is now working as a junior high school principal at my alma mater. 
I have heard that he eagerly continues to do his best in the practical oral English education.
It was only about 10 years ago that Onomichi city, which had not been cooperative in the practical English education, had the testing site for the 2nd Oral English proficiency test. (The English proficiency testing society has its about 50 year long history.)
It was not until the time when I asked then former Mayor to attract the testing site for the students in Onomichi and Onomichi Junior & High School accepted the 2nd Oral English proficiency testing site.
Now Onomichi city seems to have reached the standard level of the test taking and the practical English education.
