The TOEIC Exam (by Educational Testing Service) is a good test of English knowledge for business, the workplace and international communication.  I teach a lot of classes to expand the vocabulary of students who will take the TOEIC.

I recommend the Barron's Test Preparation book, "Essential Words For the TOEIC" and am currently using the 4th edition. This book takes 600 words and gives the student definitions and practice using the words and words that are related to these 600 words. The book is arranged into 50 lessons with 12 words in each lesson.  I have typed up these words into a long list and would like you to look at them to see how many you know.  You really should use the book, but here are the words for you to look at and think about.  I have the number of the lesson from the Barron's book before each group of 12 words.

I am going to add the entire list but might have to edit it down if it is just too long to be useful.  If I made any mistakes in typing this they are solely my fault and not the publisher of this good book. Please LET ME KNOW if you see any mistakes or have any suggestions.  I may post this for all of EnglishClub if this group benefits from it. Please enjoy testing your knowledge of these words:

Pick a topic and then go explore some of the words for that lesson.  Remember that words in any lesson may have just as easily been put into a different lesson.  They limited each group to 12 so that is what there will be in a given lesson.

Thank you  Sir   useful  set  of  words for  teacher s  too

I'm glad you find these helpful Nadira. I agree that these will be necessary words for teachers who teach higher level English classes or who will travel abroad.
