reflection and measures for TOEIC 反省と対策

I'm embarrassed that I have a big mouth that I study hard or how I study but actually my TOEIC score has been around the same stage for a long long time. My English hasn't been improved yet very much.
However making public stimulates me and I don't want to be a liar so I make efforts to carry out my words. That's why I do make public.

As I said before, I had studied five practice tests before the last TOEIC test. However the score got down. Why? I don't know exactly, but I learned that just doing five practice tests didn't take effect very much.

I came up with new measures for the next test.
At first, I take a practice test, and after that I review it thoroughly. I've always done until this.
Next, I repeat it until I can get the perfect points. I have no idea how many times I take it repeatedly. I don't care that I memorize the answers.
Then after that I take another practice test. And I do the same thing.

I want to give it a try for the time being.
Then I bought a new issue of TOEIC Test プラス・マガジン 2013.11.
I like this book very much because it is published every other month and I can listen to not only for TOEIC but other topics, and I also like the pages in which two people challenge the TOEIC test and they compete each other.

I tried the practice test yesterday. It was around the same as usual. Actually it's not good, but it's my real and present ability.
And then I'll review it for a while, then I'll repeat it again and again.
I'll let you know how it'll be later.

Hi, Sakae

I'm really impressed with your declaration.

From today I want to study Chinese harder to get 中国語検定.
I usually do 問題集 in the bath and after I 'll write the important
sentences, both Chinese and Japanese. Looking at the
Japanese part, I try to say Chinese sentences and if I can say
it is ok but if I cannot say, I read and read and read.
That's my way of studying foreign languages.
To master foreign languages takes time, I know.

Hi, ダイエット妄想ママ.

Thank you for your comment.
Wow! Do you speak Chinese as well as English?
Only English is enough for me though.
And I was surprised that you study even in the bath.
You seem to be very busy everyday because it seems that you have a full time job, take care of your family including your mother-in-law, study English and Chinese, make substantial comments on many blogs, enjoy drinks :) , and so on.
I got interested in you. Why don't you have your own blog?

Diet Mama, you could get your own blog in Chinese! That would be great. Maybe Chinese people would be able to help you.

Sakae, what books/magazines/newspapers are you reading that are purely in English? Please write about them too.

Hello, Always visiting.

All right. I'll write about it later. Do you have any recommendation on good books?

I don't have any recommendations. But maybe you can start with English translations of Japanese books.

It's difficult for me to translate books.
