Volunteer drivers for Beijing Olympics to receive English test
[ 2006-12-06 19:04 ]

从国资委等八大机关系统中选拔出来的6200多名驾驶员志愿者将接受北京奥祖委的统一英语水平测试,由于要求有较长驾龄,不少志愿者年纪较大,英语水平也参差不齐。此次测试评估将于今年12月16日至明年1月底,利用周末时间分组在奥祖委指定的四个驾驶员训练基地进行。全部测试员将由北京外国语大学英语学院优秀学生担任。

More than 6,200 volunteer drivers in Beijing for the 2008 Olympic Games will receive English language proficiency test from next weekend to the end of January.

The volunteers were picked from eight governmental departments including the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.

They were asked to use weekends to go to four driving training bases designated by the organizing committee for the Beijing Olympics to receive tests and evaluation about their English communication capability.

Students of English major with good academic records from the renowned Beijing Foreign Studies University will work as testing instructors.

A training scheme will be made based on the test results, according to Sunday's Beijing News.

The paper said the volunteers are "quite uneven" in English proficiency because of an age gap.
