An Approved Organization of
The Society for Testing English Proficiency,Inc.(STEP)


Nagoya STEP Association (NSA) is a non-profit, youth-at-heart organization dedicated to the improvements of English study,leadership development,and international friendship.NSA,established in March 1964,the year of the Tokyo Olympics,by Heiro Yamada and the late Isaburo Ichikawa of Nagoya,now has a membership of over 150 with diversified backgrounds from high school students to language professionals,in Aichi and its neighboring prefectures.While NSA is a regional organization with the authorization of The Society for Testing English Proficiency,Inc.(STEP) or "Eiken" accredited by the Ministry of Education of Japan, the nature of the coordination of the association is purely the independent voice of volunteers. Voluntary staff,experienced in language study and leadership cultivation in the community, will help individual members.
NSA presents various programs,such as lectures,workshops,arts of interpreting and translating,homestay,study tours,parties,out-door activities,consultations,technical assistances,and application service for STEP tests,as well as its three weekly English classes,described below.As for the circulation media,quarterly newsletter "NAS QUARTERLY" is mailed,in June,September,December,and March,to all registerd members.
初級・中級・上級からなる毎週の学習会を中心に、講演会やワ−クショップ、通訳、ホ−ムステイ、国際パ−ティ−、レクレ−ションなどによって自己啓発と相互啓発を図っています。会の機関紙には季刊の”NSA QUARTERLY”があり、定期的に会員に郵送されます。また実用英語技能検定試験(英検)の受験相談を始めとする各種のご相談にも応じています。本会の趣旨に賛同される方の入会を歓迎します。
