The Students Book is divided into two sections; the first focusing on the TOEIC® Speaking Test and the second on the TOEIC® Writing Test, with 20 units in total, each covering one part of the test.

"Test tips" provide important information about the test and how to tackle it, with associated language building tasks (vocabulary and grammar) and test-taking tactics.

These tactics are practised using activities which follow the same format as the actual test, and there's a mini-test for each test part, under realistic timed considitons and using official ETS TOEIC® material.

The 'Using natural English' feature helps to raise awareness of native-like intonation, stress and patterns, to improve fluency.

Self-study material, quizzes and extension activities are also included.

Reviews

  • "Tactics for TOEIC® is light years ahead in terms of visual appeal, user friendliness and accessibility of exercises to prepare the skills." Simon Yates, corporate trainer, major multinational company, Japan. "Tactics for TOEIC® immediately struck me as a well-structured, attractive, and easy-to-use book ... It has a good variety of activities and I was especially impressed by the "learn by doing" section as an alternative/supplement to the usual test practice exercises common in most TOEIC® preparation books."
