Two complete sample TSE®- like tests are included for further practice.

Toward Speaking Excellence may be used as an individual study tool or as a course text. While the material is directed toward the TSE® and SPEAK® tests, the communication strategies presented will prepare students for other types of oral exams (including the TAST®, interviews, and performance tests). Toward Speaking Excellence is a course book but may also be used for individual test-preparation/self-study.
