But I was confused when school began. There are many reception desks of English lectures here and there on campus. And most of my friends studied at TOEIC academies during the vacation. They do not bring their academic text books to school but, rather, bring their TOEIC books. My friends do English homework during the in lecture time. After taking lectures, my friends go to English lessons; so I don't have time to go shopping or chat with them.
One of the friends said to me, "Why don't you study TOEIC? It is essential to true university life even though you don't like English."
Actually, I regard writing poetry and reading various books more significant rather than studying TOEIC. And we are only sophomores! Why are my friends already chained to TOEIC? Why do Korean students have to study TOEIC all the time?
