Tip #1: Cross it out and throw it away

When you have completely finished a TOEIC paper, worksheet or book and copied down the important language to learn, putting a big cross across the page or even ripping it up and throwing it away can be a very motivating reward for your hard work, and also reduce the pile of things on your desk waiting to be done.

 

Tip #2: Read your own language quicker

Most of the skills of reading quickly are the same for every language. When you read something in your own language, practice missing out the bits like the beginning and ends of emails that you know don’t have any information in them, stopping reading each newspaper article when it is no longer interesting etc.

TOEIC_Test_TipsSo you’re taking the TOEIC test, congratulations!

Love Speaking is here to give you some very helpful tips on how to successfully prepare yourself for the test every week. Read our top 2 tips for this week below.

Tip #1: Take up another hobby

Just like recovering after a big football match, time spent getting away from English study so that you come back to it refreshed and ready to learn should be something you are completely absorbed in and is fun.

 

Tip #2: Tell someone what you are doing and get them to motivate you

In things like sports we are often motivated by things like competition between people, being told by your coach you have improved etc. It is therefore not surprising that many people get demotivated when studying on their own. By communicating with someone how you are doing, e.g. on the internet or telling someone in your family if you have having a good or a bad day, you will find that the progress you are making becomes clearer to you.

So you’re taking the TOEIC test, congratulations!

Love Speaking is here to give you some very helpful tips on how to successfully prepare yourself for the test every week. Read our top 2 tips for this week below.

Tip #1: Time everything you do during the day

As you can’t be checking your watch every minute of the exam, learning how long things take and how long 75 minutes really is can help you keep your speed up in the exam while stopping you rushing too much and panicking. Predicting how long the washing up, walking to the shops etc. will take and checking your predictions can help develop your accurate idea of time.

 

Tip #2: Listen to radio with an English DJ

Although listening is like any other part of language learning and the more effort you put in the more you will improve, unlike other skills just having something in English on in the background without paying attention to it at all can help a little with getting used to natural English rhythm and so help you to pick out the important words when you are listening in the exam.

Tip #1: Watch wildlife documentaries

In Listening Part One you will look at something and hear a description of it at the same time. This kind of situation is very rare in everyday life, but in scientific documentaries like “Planet Earth” quite a lot of that kind of language is used.

 

Tip #2: Watch or listen to sports commentary in English

This is another common situation in which you will actually hear people describing what you can see. Not only can you learn sport-related vocabulary but you can also learn some idiomatic expressions used in everyday life.

Tip #1: Learn the word stress

Practising the sounds of English on your own and recognizing when you are making the correct one is very difficult. One thing you can easily write down and learn that often makes understanding when you listen difficult is the rhythm of words. You can mark this with a big circle over the stressed (louder and longer) syllable of each word.

 

Tip #2: Learn other parts of speech

Another thing that can catch you out in the exam is hearing a word that is basically the same as one you know, but is a noun when you only know the verbs, e.g. “communication” and “communicate”. Learning each form of a word can also help you remember the original word better.

Tip #1: Read

The thing you need most to pass the TOEIC test is vocabulary, and the best way of learning vocabulary is through reading. Although looking words up in a dictionary and learning them later is a good idea for this, you need to make sure that this doesn’t slow down your reading speed.

 

Tip #2: Write

Although there is no writing in the exam, learning to write the kinds of documents you will have to read in the exam is a good way of finding out where the important information usually is and so reading things quicker. It is also good for learning vocabulary.

Tip #1: Set your body clock

If your test times will be when you are usually sleeping or eating, you will have to get used to not doing those things at those times for a few weeks before the test.

 

Tip #2: Look at your progress

If you are getting disappointed with your progress in English, you are sure to be able to find something, e.g. a test score from the beginning of your course, that shows you how much you have actually learnt. This will give you the motivation to keep trying and step up to the next level.

Tip #1: Take time out

Sometimes when you are learning a language you just need to give your brain time to really understand and learn the language subconsciously while you are doing something unconnected, for example by sleeping after studying and then trying it again the next day.

 

Tip #2: Learn to cope with stress

For some people, stress is as much of a problem in the exam as the language they are being tested on. Preparation for this can include getting used to other stressful situations like public speaking and learning relaxation techniques like meditation or deep breathing.

Tip #1: Stop translating

The thing that slows down listening and reading comprehension most is translating things into your own language in your head. You can start to think only in English by using an English-English dictionary, not using translations in your lists of vocabulary to learn, and learning whole phrases of English.

 

Tip #2: Join a study group

Just sitting next to someone studying the same thing as you can help you to discipline yourself you not take too many breaks. You can also test each other on what you have been trying to learn and try and explain why certain answers are wrong.
