This text book was written for intermediate-to-advanced learners who are preparing to take the TOEIC® Speaking Test. Although the material was created for the TOEIC® Speaking Test, the information and exercises will assist learners in preparing for other speaking tests. In addition, the strategies and skills-development exercises (in grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation) offered are useful to all students who need to improve their ability to communicate in spoken English quickly and efficiently.
This guide is unique in presenting information that will help students understand the speaking errors they are making and offering practical strategies to minimize those errors. Also included are extra practice with the most problematic vowel and consonant sounds and information on how to better understand the rhythm of English speech.
The book and the audio CD packaged with it are best used as part of a test- preparation or oral fluency curriculum but can also be used for self-study.
