Tadokids: Children who is enjoying Tadoku.
My daughter, 13, became a Tadokids when she was 7.
She's read over 2,300,000 words of English since then.
Despite almost all the students in Japan are struggling to learn English in school and trying to memorise lots of vocabularies and sentences everyday, she doesn't need to study English at all preparing for the classes in school.
It is widely believed that we have to make a special notebook to memorise new vocabularies, but she's never used such a notebook and never tried to memorise new words.
All she does is to read books and manga, and enjoy anime in English.
In October, she's planning to take STEP 2nd grade test to prove her English ability, so
she solved the last test of STEP for a trial at home today.
The STEP 2nd grade is considered to be just the right level for graduates of high school to give it a try in Japan, so I though her score might be quite low.
Contrary to my expectations, she got 27 corrects from 45 questions, 60% correct, in the first section.
It is said that 60% is the lowest to pass the test.
This means she has certain possibility to pass the test already at this moment. Gee...
She's going to try the other section, listening test, soon, then we'll see more certainly her chance to pass the test...
