Then, at your table group you enthusiastically participated in the 30-second Talks game published by Scholastic Inc. in the Timesaver Speaking Activities book.

TOEIC  TEST  Tips Part 6 (by Grant Trew):

  • Sometimes the sentence is not enough information to choose the correct answer. In that case read the rest of the text to find your answer.
  • Learn suffixes to help you identify the adjectives and adverbs
  • Understand the use of comparatives and superlative form of adjectives.
