How are things going for you?
I would like to tell you what I have been doing in
making some videos for taking the TOEIC(Test of
English for International Communication) test.
If you have to take the TOEIC, I hope these
videos will help you.
I have been doing this series since April. So far,
I have made nine videos covering all seven parts
of the TOEIC.
I am at the halfway point in making these videos
and there are still seven more to go!
To make these Videos, I am using the great books
by Grant Trew on taking the TOEIC. I like these books
because they teach the strategies for taking the TOEIC.
By practicing the strategies. You have a better chance
of putting your knowledge of English to use during the
test-taking time. As you may know, no matter how much
you understand the content of the TOEIC, if you have
poor strategies, that knowledge will be wasted in lost
time and mistakes.
Let me introduce the videos for you. They are all on
YouTube for you. I will provide the links below for
Video One talks about the basic philosophy of the TOEIC
