Tamagawa Gakuen has adopted a “2020 Vision” to globalize the delivery of education from primary school to graduate school (Tamagawa Gakuen 2012). In this connection, this article discusses the Department of International Management’s efforts to implement a Dual Language Program integrating English and business courses throughout its four year curriculum. Using a Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) approach, (1) a scale, (2) Can Do Statement learning objectives, (3) on-line course materials and (4) proficiency tests are integrated into a GSE (Global Scale of English) eco-system. This should produce students who are not only proficient in English, but also can function in an Englishlanguage work environment.
