About This Course
This guide is designed to help your employees further develop or reinforce their understanding of specific English communication skills that are assessed on the TOEIC Speaking and Writing exam. They will have the opportunity to review public speaking strategies, effective listening techniques, essay writing processes and word and sentence structures. One lesson is devoted to helping them understand what the TOEIC Speaking and Writing exam and why and how it is used.
About the Exam
The TOEIC exams are used by companies worldwide to help corporate leaders determine which employees possess strong written and oral communication skills needed to interact with clients, vendors and fellow workers. The Speaking and Writing exam are separate tests, and test-takers will receive separate scores for both parts. The exam is administered online. In the Speaking test, examinees must speak aloud as prompted on the screen, which includes picture descriptions, text readings and question responses. The Writing portion requires that test-takers write a one-sentence description of a picture as well as a response and an essay. The Speaking test contains 11 questions, while the Writing test has eight questions. The time to complete the Speaking test is 20 minutes, while those taking the Writing exam have 60 minutes to complete the entire test. Both tests are scored on a scale of 0-200, though the test measures ability only and no passing or failing scores are established.
TOEIC Speaking and Writing Exam Preparation & Registration
This comprehensive study guide can help employees prepare for the TOEIC Speaking and Writing exam by allowing them to review all topics they will encounter when taking the two parts of this exam. Lesson topics cover the use of intonation as well as stress in public speaking. Also highlighted are word meanings and connections, speech organization practices, pacing, correcting speaking mistakes and using visual media. Other lessons address essay writing, listening tips, proofreading, constructing meaning and parts of speech. Self-assessment quizzes help to establish what has been learned in each lesson and where employees might need further review before taking this exam.
Registration for this exam requires that a local Educational Testing Service (ETS) be contacted by e-mail, phone or fax to inquire about the exam's availability in your country. An online information request form, which can be sent electronically or printed and mailed, can be used if there is no local office available. Once availability has been established, you must register your employee through the ETS TOEIC website. A photo of the employee along with personal information and payment information must be uploaded, and a testing site and date must be chosen.
