Tip #1: Ask questions

 Never hesitate to ask lots of questions. If you don’t understand something, such as conditionals, you may lose ten points on a TOEIC exam. A teacher is not always available, but students are everywhere! Sometimes other students can help you with problems so it can pay off to ask your friends too!

Tip #2: Manage your stress

 If you are feeling stressed about taking the test you may be studying too hard or expecting too much of yourself. Like everything else in life, balance is the key. Remind yourself that you will try to do your best. Before the test, take deep breaths and remember that you can always improve your score in a few months time. In between the listening and reading section, take a few deep breaths again to get focused. 

Tip #3: Don’t cram

 You should never cram (study extremely hard in a short period of time) the night or even week before the TOEIC test. There is so much to learn when you study the TOEIC. The last week should be for reviewing and practising rather than learning new things. Make sure to get plenty of sleep the night before the test. On the day of the test, have a good meal and relax for a few hours before going to the testing centre. Plan to reward yourself when the test is over!

Tip #1: Use mass media

One of the best ways to prepare for the test is to familiarize yourself with real life English. Watch television, listen to radio reports, and read newspapers and magazines. Pay special attention to ads, letters, weather and traffic reports, coupons, and special announcements. It is a great way to learn common idiomatic expressions

 

Tip #2: Use free websites

There are many web sites that offer free practice tests and samples. Type TOEIC into any search engine and start practising! Surfing the web is a great way to practise your reading and listening too. If you are interested in a certain topic, such as snowboarding, type that into a search engine.

 

Tip #3: Keep an English journal

Keeping a journal doesn’t have to be an account of your daily activities. You can write anything in a journal, such as how your studying is coming along, what your new favourite word is and why, or lists of new vocabulary when reading a certain article that day.

Tip #1: Manage your time

When you are doing practice tests, you should always be aware of the time. Never allow yourself an open ended study session. You will have to learn to work efficiently within the timeframe of the actual exam.

On test day, you should be especially careful in the Reading section. You will have 75 minutes to complete Parts V, VI and VII. Many students spend too long on section V or VI because they find these the most difficult. Don’t spend more than 30 minutes on the first two parts. Part VII will take you at least 40 minutes, and it is worth a lot of points, especially if you find it an easier section.

Tip #2: Listen quickly

When you are studying for the TOEIC test, do not practice by rewinding the tape. On the day of your test you won’t have any control over the speed of the listening section. You will not even have time to think for very long between questions.

If you do not know the answer, take your best guess. Don’t look back at questions when you are waiting for another question to start or you can lose track of what you need to focus on for the next question.

Tip #3: Practice reading aloud

Reading out loud will help your listening and reading comprehension skills. In order to understand English more quickly, it is important that you understand the rhythm of the language. Read from textbooks, flyers, newspapers, and even children’s novels. You can also tape yourself and listen to how you sound.

Tip #1: Isolate your weak points 

After you have been studying the TOEIC for a while, you will find out which parts give you the most trouble. If you are studying by yourself, find a good reference book in the library and look up your questions. There may also be help on the Internet.

Tip #2: Don’t try to translate

Translating vocabulary and sentences wastes a lot of time. It is very rare that students have extra time during the TOEIC test. If you don’t know a word, look at the context of the sentence and the words around it. You will also not be allowed to use a dictionary when you take the test.

Tip #3: Guess as a last resort

On test day, if you don’t know the answer, and you have eliminated all of the distractors you can, don’t leave the space blank. There is a good chance you will not have time to go back to this question. You still have a 25% chance of getting the answer right if you guess. If you are sure that one or two of the answers are incorrect, your guess is even more likely to be correct

TOEIC Tips 2

¡Enhorabuena! Vas a tomar el examen TOEIC.

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 3 tips for this week below.

Tip #1: Divide your study time 

Each section is worth a certain amount of points. Don’t spend too much time studying one section. Many students make the mistake of studying the section that they enjoy the most. This is the section you should spend the least amount of time on. Try to focus on your weaknesses.

Tip #2: Build a strong vocabulary

Another reason some students fail the TOEIC test is that they have a very limited vocabulary. The day you decide to take the TOEIC test you should make yourself a blank dictionary. Use a notebook and keep track of all of the new words you learn along the way, including those you discover on Love Speaking!

Tip #3: Eliminate distractors

In every TOEIC question, there are at least two distractors (wrong answers that the writer uses to trick you). It is much easier to choose the correct answer when you have only two to choose from as the third choice is often impossible and easy to spot. There are many types of distractors such as, similar sounds, homonyms, repeated words, etc.

TOEIC Top Tips 1

¡TOEICEnhorabuena! Vas a tomar el examen TOEIC.

Love Speaking is here to give you some very helpful tips on how to successfully prepare yourself for the test every week to help you succeed at each step of the way. Read our top 3 tips for this week below.

Tip #1: Set a goal / Establece una meta

The first thing you need to do is set a goal. If you are taking the test as a requirement for a job, try to find out what level you need to get in order to be successful. Make sure that the goal is achievable. This means not aiming too high but also not aiming too low. This will ensure that you are not disappointed with the final result.

Tip #2: Understand the test Entienda el examen

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 practice tests, you will become very familiar with how the test works. It should become “second nature” to you before you attempt the real thing so that there is nothing on the test that will surprise you. 

Tip #3: Make a study plan / Haz un plan de estudios

Even though you may have booked your TOEIC test months in advance, the day you decide to take the test should be the day you start to study too. You will have to decide whether or not you are going to teach yourself with  resources or take a preparation class. Studying at the same time every day is a great way to improve your score. Write down your study plan and stick to it
