The Autonomous Language Learning Rooms (ALL Rooms) is an English-Only social and study space on Akita University’s Tegata campus. The ALL Rooms has hundreds of English language study materials available for students, graduate students, faculty, and staff to use. Materials include TOEIC, TOEFL, IELTS, and EIKEN study guides, graded readers, DVDs, and more.
Throughout the year, we also host a variety of cultural events, celebrating both Japanese and international culture.
