The Next-Generation TOEFL(R) Test focuses on all four skills and academic skill proficiency. It responds to the growing popularity of communicative testing by addressing all four skills--reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The Michigan Guide to English for Academic Success and Better TOEFL(R) Test Scores will help international students develop the skills that will improve their English--not just for test preparation, but for academic purposes as well. The book may be used as a core text in multi-skills academic classes and dedicated test-preparation programs.
Within each chapter of this book, academic skills are identified, explained, practiced, and finally testdd. Opportunities for simulated test practice are provided within the chapters, and a complete practice test is provided at the back of the book.
Other features include:
*full-length readings from authentic college-level textbooks and other academic material
*authentic lectures from first- and second-year university courses
*examples of student writing and speaking from nonnative speakers of English in testing situations
*extensive sections detailing how written and spoken responses will be rated.
The two audio CDs packaged with the book contain all the material for the listening section and the integrated skills tested in the writing and speaking sections of the new TOEFL(R) (to be released in 2005).
