Okayama JALT:

Teaching strategies and classroom materials for TOEIC

Date: Saturday, June 18th, 2005 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Ritsuko Uenaka and Seiko Korechika

The TOEIC test appears to be gaining in popularity each year but some teachers do not know very much about it or how it can be approached. In the first half of the talk the presenters will share their experiences of teaching TOEIC focusing on various classroom strategies, and highlighting some key problem areas (for example, teaching for the test versus 'normal' teaching). In the second part of the presentation the presenters will talk about their experience of publishing a text book for teachers who are thinking about publication but do not know where to start. They will also discuss various lessons they have learned that may be useful to other teachers who are thinking about teaching TOEIC.
