Kobe JALT:

The New TOEIC Test: Understanding and Overcoming the Challenges

Date: Saturday, January 27th, 2007 Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Speaker: Grant Trew

The TOEIC Test is the primary tool for assessing English proficiency in Japan. The change to the test format in May 2006 has significant implications both for students and educators, who will need both an understanding of the changes and appropriate preparation to deal with them.

This workshop aims to clarify the changes to the test, highlight the impact and implications for both test takers and teachers and present some approaches to overcoming the problems Japanese learners are likely to face. The presenter will give examples of the new format and use interactive tasks to highlight some of the key challenges test takers will face.
