CRAM   (知識を)詰め込む


  • To cram is to try to learn a lot in a short period of time, such as right before a test.

    A cram school is a school - separate from a student's regular school - that usually helps students prepare for high school or university entrance examinations.
  • cram とは、試験の直前などに、短時間のうちにたくさん勉強しようとするという意味です。

    cram school というと、(普通に通う学校とは別に)高校や大学の入学試験のための準備をしてくれる塾、予備校のことをさします。
