入試の季節  Season of entrance examinations


外検入試:
外検入試とは英検®、TOEFL、TOEICなどの英語資格を利用できる「英語外部検定利用入試」のことで、受験生のメリットが大きく、導入する大学も急増中、と報じられています。
大学側も多くの受験生を「1回の試験で英語4技能すべてを1日で評価する」ことは不可能に近く、メリットがあるでしょう。
バランスの取れた英語力の評価に関して残っている問題は受験生を送り出す中学校、高校側で教師の英語4技能能力が依然として低すぎることでしょう。(記事参照)
Gaiken Nyushi:
This is a new Japanese word and there seems to be no good and simple translation in English.
Gaiken Nyushi can be translated into a university (college) entrance examination using the external English proficiency test such as Eiken, TOEFL, TOEIC and others.
This Gaiken Nyushi has been reported to have a big merit for examination takers (high school students) so that more and more universities or colleges are rapidly introducing Gaiken Nyushi. 
Universities or colleges also have the merit of making use of the external English proficiency test because it is almost impossible for them to evaluate the four English language skills of very many test-takers’ on the only one test in a day.
The remaining problem is that the 4 skills of English teachers’ at the junior and senior high schools in Japan are too low as the newspaper article shows.
