Quick Write 072411 “July 2011 TOEIC”

Unlike the usual July TOEICs when I’d get totally exhausted at the end of the first semester marking hundreds of final exams and calculating students’ grades, I was physically fine this morning. As soon as I entered the test venue, I found Masaya there to my surprise! Although I knew he was going to take TOEIC at the same venue as mine, I’d never imagine taking the test in the same room with him. Is it a good sign or what!? The test started 13:00 sharp and I soon concentrated on the listening section. Part1 contained not frequently-tested vocabulary, such as “garment”, “log”, “page”. I quite enjoyed those surprises. Part 2 was as normal as I expected. Am I the only one who thought there were many C answers, by the way? Part 3 and 4 didn’t give me many surprises. Part 5 was rather easy and simple. The one I got intrigued was “critical” vs. “criticized”. There was “of” after the blank and the subject was humans, so the answer should be “critical”. One of the subjects was “Dr. Kato”, which made me grin. Part 6 was as simple as always. But there was one good question testing the comprehension of tense, whose right answer should be “would be doing” because the subject was the job candidate and other choices are verbs in the passive tense such as “will be done” or incomplete verbs. So far, so good. But the things changed in the middle of Part 7. One of the single passage, I remember it was about a water-purifying equipment or something, took me double, triple, or quadruple takes of re-reading. There were more than 20 questions left, so I got tense for the first time for those four or five years! I managed to finish answering all the questions in time, but I kind of failed in time management, so to speak. That leaves me another area to work on regarding the test-taking skills of TOEIC. But I won’t really thrive to acquire the test-taking skills themselves. I’ll rather try to enhance my reading accuracy and fluency in general while building up my vocabulary through what is being used in the real world, not from TOEIC-specialized books. (Disclaimer: those books can be good resources for “teaching” TOEIC, though!)
