Introducing the ERC and Related Courses

More About the ERC
Located in the heart of the CEED, the ERC is a casual, relaxed environment where students have the opportunity to freely ask questions and to have regular conversation practice with native English-speaking teachers. They are also able to meet other students who want to actively improve their English.
There is a variety of information available for students who come to the ERC, including English text books, study guides, information on TOEIC, as well as cultural and study abroad information and magazines from many different countries around the world. While visiting the ERC, a student is able to read English magazines and newspapers, use the library for research, and play various games in English. In addition, students can check out and take home English-language DVDs, videos, reading books, and music CDs.
The English Resource Center at Saitama University has been created for students who are interested in improving their English, whether it be for professional or personal reasons. We are dedicated to providing a space where you can increase your knowledge of the English language. We hope you will visit us and look forward to meeting you.
