Ideas for using the TOEIC® Word List

  • Write the translation next to each word. Cover the columns and test yourself!
  • Write each word you don’t know on a small card. Write the translation on the back. Carry these “flash cards” with you and test yourself regularly throughout the day.
  • Make sentences using each word. Learning words in context is very effective.
  • Choose the most useful words. Then use a dictionary to make a list of related words.
