Since the beginning of this semester we are starting a new program for our Academic Resource Center (ARC) in which students get assistance with homework and some guidance studying for the TOEIC test.
April was a little slow due to book purchases and setting up of computer and printers, but in May we saw some students visiting the ARC regularly and asking assistance from our TA (who has been hired with the main duty of conducting this program).
Well, last Tuesday and Wednesday we had the first TOEIC Workshop. Although only 4 students have directly confirmed their attendance, around 50 showed up!!!!
We learned a valuable lesson: never underestimate students willingness to study. Next time, we better get a bigger room.
