PASSAGE READING

Please read aloud the following passage. I will check your pronunciation as you read.

READ

Automobile industry

The Japanese automobile industry is one of the largest industries in the world. Japan has been in the top three countries that manufacture cars since the 1960’s. Japanese automakers stay focused on improving and innovating the cars they manufacture.
Automobile companies rely on many supporting industries to produce quality cars. A single car is composed of 20,000-30,000 parts that even the largest automobile companies cannot produce themselves. Because of this, they outsource products to local and international manufacturing companies. This is to assure that every car they make is safe and reliable.

PART C_1

Read and take note of the important points in the article.

PART C_2

In Japan, a recent survey was conducted for students on their behavior about learning English. The results of the survey indicated that students have contradictory attitude towards learning English. Although a lot of students thought English is important for them to get a job, only a few of them are willing to take jobs requiring English. The surveyors find this disappointing. However, it is also possible that the students do not necessarily think that learning English is the only way to land on their dream jobs. Excellent English communication skills have become a universal work requirement all over the world, but not a requirement to reach success.
