The course has been written and developed by Mr. Koji Hayakawa, a recognized expert in TOEIC® test measures, and is delivered in an easyto-understand review and practice format for maximum score gain. The key sections of the TOEIC® L & R test are presented in an order that progresses from easy to more difficult to help students build their knowledge. Each lesson begins with a Test Skills Focus section to introduce the skill that will be practiced. This is followed by a presentation and practice of the language needed, and further test practice exercises. The lesson concludes with a short test to assess the student’s understanding and progress.
Kickoff for the TOEIC® L & R features 16 highly practical video lectures written by Mr. Hayakawa that outline the test format in full and provide strategies and tips for each test section to build test taking confidence. Each lecture lasts for approximately 2 minutes and provides a useful study tool and reference for students. Four simulation tests are also included. Each test is half the length of the official TOEIC® Listening and Reading test, but otherwise faithfully replicates its structure. The tests familiarize students with the test taking experience. They can be used as a benchmark to identify weak areas early on, or for score comparison at the end of the course.
Lessons follow a systematic cycle and are broken down into short modules. Students can begin a lesson, take a break and simply pick up where they left of. An end-of-lesson test helps consolidate the language learned and provides an immediate benchmark of progress made.
