Quick Write 101711 “How to deep-review Part 5”

During a Q&A session at the seminar for which I was one of the three lecturers, we got a question as follows: “You advised us to review 40+40 questions in Part 5 thoroughly and gave us quizzes with different blanks, from which we learned much. But we won’t be able to create such quizzes, and we’ll eventually remember all the “answers” by solving the questions over and over. In such case, how can we possibly review those 80 questions more deeply, or should we move on to a new book?” It really is a good, thought-provoking question. Then, what would your answer be like?

The answer from Robert, a native English speaking lecturer, recommended that they should move onto a new book. He values being exposed to as many authentic TOEIC questions as possible as one of the effective test strategies. Hiro, a Japanese lecturer responded that 80 stem sentences in the textbook (TOEIC Official Book vol. 4) contain important vocabulary and sentence structures which are worth memorizing by reading them aloud or typing all the sentences into Word files. My answer was pretty much like Hiro’s, but now I found it was not convincing enough, so I tried to come up with my better spin.

Now I’d say, “If you become able to choose the right answers from four choices, you can type all the sentences with the right answers, put small pieces of paper to hide the parts of the sentences, and try to come up with the words or phrases for the sentences to make sense.” This is in fact the variation from what Hiro came up with for the Part 3 session, but the basic concept is the same for this Part 5 practice. It’s meant to add a productive element to a receptive practice of just choosing the answers from given choices. If the sentence that you’re working on has some missing words, you’ll need to parse (“resolve a sentence into its component parts and describe their syntactic roles” Source: OED) it, guess its meaning, and seek multiple possibilities to create a legitimate sentence from both syntactical and semantic viewpoints. It should be a good training to enhance your ability to analyze the grammatical construction of the sentence, infer the meaning thereof, and enhance the writing skill, all of which will eventually contribute to improving your performance for Part 5 questions.
