Lesson 25
Dear friend,

Today is an important day because you are receiving your English email lesson number 25 and I''d like to introduce you to something new. Or maybe you already have heard about the TOEIC -- the Test Of English for International Communication? The TOEIC test is the most widely used English exam in the international business world. Now, I know you might not be too excited about tests and exams as most of them are so called ''pass/fail tests''. This means, you can either pass or fail the exam. If you pass the exam, you will get a certificate. If you fail it, you will get nothing. The TOEIC test is different: Nobody fails the TOEIC test -- everybody who takes the exam also passes it. Of course everybody gets a different score. If your English is very good, your TOEIC score will be higher than 850 points while intermediate students usually achieve between 550 and 700 points. A lot of TOEIC test candidates have told me that they are looking for an effective way of learning all the words they need to know to achieve a good TOEIC score. As you know, different people have different learning methods so you should try out a variety of learning activities and ideas to see what works best for you. On our site you will find almost 700 vocabulary exercises that will help you test and increase your TOEIC word power. You can start right now by trying out this TOEIC verbal test.

Since the TOEIC test consists of a listening as well as a reading section, you should also practise your listening skills. That''s why Sue has recorded an audio text containing sample sentences with "doesn''t" and "don''t". I''m sure you already know how to make negative sentences in the present simple but a little review and practice always comes in handy, doesn''t it? Here is your audio session: Don''t, doesn''t.

I hope you enjoyed this audio recording and now you will probably be able to create your own simple present sentences. As usual, I look forward to reading your posts on the forum here: Audio English course for Beginners.

Do you know what the word ''responses'' means? Yes, it means ''answers'', ''reactions'' or ''replies''. Alan has created a variety of exercises which help you learn how to respond to different questions. I suggest you try out some of them here:
Responses (1)
Responses (2)
Responses (3)

If you have any questions regarding the expressions and phrases Alan used in these tests, please post them on the forum direct. As I''m sure you remember, every single test question has a button/link which is labeled "Click here for Explanation". Here is an example.

In other words: The forum allows you to get an immediate response from Alan or one of our forum language coaches and I really look forward to meeting you on the forum, too. By the way, I''m very glad that more and more of our forum users are adding their photo to their forum profile. It is such an exciting feeling to know that some of our students come from as far afield as Cameroon or Mongolia! Without the forum I can meet and teach only students who live in my own region and they have all the same cultural background and native language.

Dear friend,
Thank you very much for doing such a great job in your English course. I very much appreciate your commitment to improving your English and hope to see you on the forum soon.
Best regards,
Torsten Daerr
