Hello Everyone

Hello Everyone

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
you.


Video 1

Video One talks about the basic philosophy of the TOEIC
and a short history of how it started.

In addition, there is a general overview of all the 
parts of the TOEIC with some great advice.

Video Two gives advice on how you can study 
beforehand for the TOEIC.

This includes how you can improve your readings and 
listening skills you need for the TOEIC and how to 
study vocabulary.

Video Three introduces how to do Part One of the 
TOEIC and general advice on doing the listening

listening questions.

Video 4

Video Four gives advice on how to do Part Two 
of the TOEIC.

Part Two is one of the more difficult sections
of the TOEIC because, unlike the other listening 
parts, there is no written context for this part.
This part really tests your concentration!

Video 5

Video Five gives advice on how to do Part 
Three of the TOEIC emphasizing how to cope
with the new changes in this part.

Part Three has a conversation on the tape
and questions in the test booklet. Some 
conversations have three people speaking!

Video Six gives advice on how to do Part

In Part Four, a person gives a speech and
you must answer questions related to that
speech.

Video 7

Video Seven gives advice on how to do Part
Five of the TOEIC.

In Part Five, you must select the proper
word or phrase to put into a blank in a 
sentence in the test booklet. This part
test your vocabulary as well as your 
grammatical knowledge.

Video 8

Video Eight gives advice on how to do Part 
Six of the TOEIC.

Part Six, similar to Part Five, but is a
longer, connected text. You must also 
consider the context of the text as well.
A new change is to insert the proper 
missing sentence.

Video 9

Video Nine deals with the most difficult 
part of the TOEIC: Part Seven.
Part Seven has questions for different 
kinds of texts and these can be one, two, 
or even three connected texts. Very Difficult!

So this is what I have done so far. I 
sincerely hope that you will enjoy these 
videos and that you may be able to benefit
from them.

Remember, it's not just what you know to 
take a test, but also what you know on how
to take the test. That is where strategy
comes in.
