TOEIC Practice Session

Now we are going to look at some examples from each section. When you are first learning about the TOEIC it is helpful to read the listening sections. Later, when you are familiar with the structure, you will want to practise with a tape or CD. For this practice session, any words that you see in red are words you would hear on a recording in the real test. Any words you see in blue are words you would read in your test booklet. *Make sure to read the explanatory answers for each example, even if you answer a question correctly. Explanatory answers identify common distractors (wrong answers) and reasons why an answer is correct or incorrect. When you have finished the examples, read these 20 TOEIC Tips.

Tips to help you prepare for the TOEIC test

The TOEIC® test is not based on information that can be read from any particular textbook. It is rather a measure of general overall English language proficiency. To improve your English capabilities, you need to study English and more importantly, practise it.

There are several things you can do everyday to help you prepare for the TOEIC® test.

  • Listen to music – Music helps you acquire the rhythm and stress patterns of spoken English.
  • Use the language – Set aside half an hour each day to communicate only in English. If you can’t do this face-to-face, send regular e-mail messages.
  • Read – Reading is the best way to improve your vocabulary. Read newspapers, magazines, websites, novels, and non-fiction books. Choose something that genuinely interests you and isn’t too challenging.
  • Write – Try keeping a daily journal where you can practice using new words and expressions. This helps reinforce sentence structures and vocabulary.
  • Listen to the radio and watch TV – this helps you pick up the language, and does not bore you either!
  • Take an English language course – If you are a beginner in English language learning and want to improve your language skills, you can take language training courses in any of the ETS Europe authorised language schools  in your city. A tip to help you maximise your learning experience: insist on taking the TOEIC® test before you start your course, and then again at the end – this will give you an accurate indication of the progress that you have made.

Tips For Toeic Test

  1. Set a goal

    So, you’ve decided to take the TOEIC test. Congratulations! The first thing you should do is set a goal. If you are taking the test in order to apply for a job, find out what proficiency level is required. Most entry level positions require a minimum score of 600. Management positions may require a higher score, such as 800.

    Choose a goal that is achievable. If you aim too high, you will be disappointed. Remember, you can take the test as often as you want if you don’t mind paying the fee.

  2. Understand the test

    Before you start studying for the test, make sure you understand the format of each section. You will be tested on your listening and reading comprehension skills. By doing model or practice tests, you will become very familiar with the TOEIC. The test should become “second nature” to you before you attempt the real thing.

  3. Make a study plan

    Procrastination is one of the key reasons students fail the TOEIC test. You may book your TOEIC test months in advance. However, the day you decide to take the TOEIC test should be the day you start to study. Baca lebih lanjut
