2015 marks the 41st time round for the JALT International Conference, this year being held in Shizuoka at The Shizuoka Convention & Arts Center from Friday November 20 through Monday, November 23. This year's theme is 'Focus on the Learner.' As ever, Abax looks forward to displaying and presenting here.
In addition to センター試験のためのリスニング•スキル Abax released the first book in the three-part series, TOEIC® Skills, last year. This was TOEIC® Skills 1. The two higher level books should be available for the school year starting in 2016. Take a look at the inside pages to get an idea of how the books work—the series is all about developing TOEIC skills and the language skills needed for TOEIC, and doing it communicatively.

For many teachers in Japan, the start of August marks the beginning of a well deserved rest after a busy spring term. We wish all our customers a restful summer season and the chance to recharge for the coming fall. For us too, summer is a chance to recharge. So please note that the Abax office will be closed from August 11 - 15. But other that, we'll be here to help you with your materials decisions and any inquiries you may have. A great summer to all!
The cherry blossoms are in bloom and millions and millions of students are heading back to school from this week. Here's to the start of a very successful school year!
