The English Reader Marathon is an annual reading contest. This year, it goes from May 2 to Dec. 2 (midnight). The object is to read as many graded readers as possible and take Mreader quizzes to show that the books were read and understood. Every year, the winners get a prize of book certificates. Anyone who wants to improve vocabulary, reading speed and TOEIC scores should do the Reader Marathon. Students who want to do long term study abroad should absolutely join. If you have questions, talk to Kevin, Sugano-sensei or Fukaya-sensei. If you fail a quiz, talk to Kevin to get a second chance.
There are two divisions:
First year students use Xreading only. Xreading.com
2nd, 3rd, 4th year students can read books on Xreading, but quizzes are taken at Mreader.org.
Non-freshmen! If you want to read books online (on your smart phone, tablet or PC), talk to Kevin and get an Xreading account. Tsurumi University will pay so you can read books anytime, anywhere. Ask Kevin about this!
