TOEIC is an English language test taken by non-native speakers who want to use English in their international workplace. It also allows employers to make hiring decisions, promotions, or transfers depending on job seekers’ qualifi-\cations and English proficiency. In Vietnam, TOEIC has recently been used as a tool to measure students’ level of competence in English before graduation from university.
In actual fact, TOEIC is not the kind of general English you have so far been familiar with. Most TOEIC-related materials have special features in terms of their question format and business-oriented settings. You should, therefore, familiarize yourself with the format of the TOEIC test and some basic tactics to be able to achieve your goal.
Smart TOEIC, which is comprised of Smart TOEIC Listening and Smart TOEIC Reading, has been written for pre-intermediate learners whose ultimate aim is to take the TOEIC test, so presumably it will meet your expectations.
As far as Smart TOEIC Listening is concerned, all the lessons have been arranged on the four parts of the TOEIC Listening test. Especially, the most common questions coupled with essentially useful vocabulary and structures are presented in detail. In addition, you will f\ind a great number of dictation exercises whose aim is to help you not only consolidate the previous listening materials but learn new words and structures in context as well. F\inally, a wide range of practice activities which correspond to the format of the actual TOEIC Listening test will certainly provide you with fundamental input in your coming test. As for Smart TOEIC Reading, basic grammar points presented in the fifteen clear and concise lessons will certainly provide you with essential knowledge of English grammar. Last but not least, all the following practice tests that are typical of Parts 5, 6, and 7 of the TOEIC Reading test are, undoubtedly, a valuable resource to facilitate your actual test.
This book can be used in class with the assistance of an instructor or for self-study.
Hopefully, Smart TOEIC will be a companion on your path to your own expected goal and forthcoming workplace success.
