This learning material is intended to provide students with guidelines to
the learning of vocabulary and grammar in order to best use the core
book Developing Skills for the TOEIC TEST, one of the most
renowned books by First News.

The material contains 3 sessions. Session 1 deals with the knowledge of

vocabulary in 14 units and the contextual examples of authentic
language given to illustrate. Session 2 gives the important grammar
practice tests related to the key grammar points so that students can
actively practise and effectively improve their skills. Session 3 gives
the answer key.

As mentioned, the material is beneficial to students. Constructive

suggestions and corrections are, therefore, highly appreciated.
