This is the typical length of advertisement. I suggest you read the text once with skimming technique. Then you read the questions and read the related information in detail. Some advertisements use symbols, numbers, and pictures to draw attention. But this one is written in paragraphs and not marked as advertisement. Therefore, one of the questions is Where is the text from? Here are the choices and the solution.
In this part, you will hear two people having a conversation and answer three questions based on what you hear. Now, the conversation has a very specific purpose. So, every line matters. Typically, the choices are clear. If you can catch up with the audio, then you have a good chance to get the right answer.
In reading comprehension, the reading text may come in form of postcard. Postcard is naturally written by easier words than those used in e-mail or letter because it’s usually meant for family or friends. But there could be some informal phrases that you have never seen before.
Part II of Listening test is called question-response. From the audio, you hear a question and three responses. You basically have to choose the response that conforms to the question. This part truly tests your listening skill because the answers are quite explicit. If you hear the audio correctly, there’s a good chance that you’ll get the answer correctly.
Don’t worry if you are not good at vocabulary. There are other ways to succeed the sentence completion test. By analyzing grammar structure, you can eliminate the incorrect choice, thus increase your probability of choosing the correct answer. I can guarantee that studying grammar is more useful than memorizing a large bunch of vocabularies. Grammar is fixed rule that can be applied to any context. Meanwhile, there are too many vocabularies. No matter how many of them you can memorize, there is not much chance that they are going to be in the test.
Subject-verb agreement is another grammar rule that is regularly tested. in a sentence, the form of verb depends on the subject. If the subject is singular, the verb is either is, was, or verb with s/es. If the subject is plural or ‘you’, the verb is either are, were, or verb without s/es
Part VII of TOEIC test is about reading comprehension. So the questions are in similar form to other popular tests such as TU-GET and CU-TEP. But instead of long passages, you will be given e-mails, announcement posters, news article, or easy texts from magazine. Undoubtedly, reading test in TOEIC is the easiest one. That’s why the problem usually involves not the text or questions but the time.
