Updated to reflect the most recent TOEIC, this test preparation book includes 50 vocabulary-building lessons that focus on American English as it is used in business, industry, communications, and cultural activities. All activities are like the actual questions on the TOEIC exam and provide extra test practice. Examples of practical English usage touch on such subjects as contracts, marketing, banking, and personnel, among many other activities. Additional lessons are focused to help TOEIC test takers expand their English vocabulary in areas related to cultural activities, such as movies, music, and art. Each lesson presents 12 target words with definitions, and then uses them in several different contexts. Practice exercises follow every lesson, and a quiz follows every five lessons to test students' expanding skill in English word usage. The enclosed audio CDs provide essential help in pronunciation and listening comprehension.
