I assume the games will be held in August.
Yup, July/August. October (as in '64) or Sep/Oct (as in Seoul '88) might have been better?

I think it's fair to say (???) that folks have been a bit negative on this website in the past about Tokyo and the Olympics . . . so it's good to see mostly (!!!) positive responses above.

it would be more helpful if we thought of “better English communication” as meaning “better English ethos, pathos and logos.”

Rather than pursuing numbers, we try to sell one car at a time, producing good cars. We aren’t focused on being No. 1

TOEIC was never designed to measure how “persuasively” someone speaks, because how do you quantify that?
TOEIC simply measures “English proficiency”.
If you want to know how how much “human depth” someone has - well, that’s what job interviews are for.
