I'm exhausted, phew～
The other day, I was asked to hand in the score qualification of TOEIC to take charge of another Tadoku class for a year from April, at high school as a part-time English teacher.
This time, the job offer came in the last minute and there is no time for me to take TOEIC by the due day of required documents, so I was allowed to go with the expired score which was obtained almost 15 years ago＾＾；
I don't believe that such test scores would appropriately show how much someone have the ability to use English in the real world, so I haven't planned to take one up to now. However, I thought I should prove my English competence in some ways which everyone can judge easily, so I decided to try the practice test of TOEIC with the official textbook.
The result was, mmm, I thought my English somehow got better, but I'm too old to concentrate for 2 hours. ha ha
My score 15 years ago was 860.
The result of today's trial test is 795-885.
mmm, My score fall down...but the good thing is that I had 17! minutes left for the reading section, so there should be at least slightest chances to have more correct answers.
Oh, well, so should I take the real TOEIC test? It will cost me 6,615 yen... I'd prefer to spend that money for manga...
