The tip of TOEIC learning is to use English for every day with gap time.
Of course, having a TOEIC book and solving questions on the way to work is also a good way to use gap time.
However, if you use digital devices as well, you will be able to study more.
In TOEIC learning, three kinds of tips as follows;
1 Electronic dictionary
2 Small speakers
3 MP3 player
When I was studying TOEIC, I always carried around these digital devices.
This time, I will talk about how to make TOEIC study more efficient and fun by making good use of digital devices.
In addition, we will introduce you to the TOEIC learning app that has been much requested this time!
1 Electronic dictionary
When I was a student, paper dictionaries were mainstream and people who used electronic dictionaries were still a minority.
However, now there is little benefit to using a paper dictionary.
・ It takes time to check words
・ Text is small and hard to see
・ Very heavy, difficult to carry
・ The meaning can not be compared in multiple dictionaries
・ We can not confirm sound
Paper dictionaries have many disadvantages as mentioned above. Therefore, it is recommended to switch to the electronic dictionary immediately if you are currently using a paper dictionary.
Today’s electronic dictionaries contain more than 20 English dictionary data and audio data.
There are two types of models that I can recommend for TOEIC learning in electronic dictionaries.
First of all. Casio’s Ex-word series.
The reason why we recommend this model is that, besides the usual electronic dictionary function, there is a TOEIC problem collection and a wordbook.
Casio’s electronic dictionary has become a very easy-to-use application of technology accumulated over many years as an electronic dictionary maker!
There is one more electronic dictionary that is highly rated for TOEIC measures.
Although I do not use it, the price is about 10,000 yen cheaper than Casio’s electronic dictionary, so it may be good for those who want to hold down the cost. However, it is better to be prepared for the feeling of use of the price because the voice that “it is hard to operate” is scattered in the Amazon review.
Here is also a collection of TOEIC exam questions.
2 small speakers
It is connected with the MP3 player and the smart phone which are introduced in the following Bluetooth connection, and it is useful to handle the TOEIC listening problem on the go.
It is a small speaker about the size and weight of one pet bottle, but it produces an incredibly clear sound. Charging is only once or twice a month, which is very economical.
It is convenient to carry without bulky even put in the bag.
3 MP3 player
When focusing on TOEIC learning, the key is whether the MP3 player is equipped with the “language learning mode”.
In language learning mode, you will be able to do this.
Playback speed adjustment
You can adjust the playback speed. You can select the speed from × 50% to × 200%. It is perfect for voice out such as shadowing and overlapping.
A little back function
You can go back 3 seconds with one push. English phrases are usually about one phrase for about three seconds, so you can use them when you say “Oh! I missed a present!” Or can be used to practice the same phrase over and over again.
Each press will return 3 seconds, so you can press twice in a row for 6 seconds or fine-tune.
Designation of playback range
You can specify the playback range and play back there many times. You can extract only sentences that you can not say well, and practice as many as ten times until you can say smoothly.
With these features, learning English will be a lot more fun and fun.
Please choose according to your budget as there are entry models and high-end models.
High-end models are compatible with high res, so it is suitable for those who want to listen not only to the listening voice but also to general music with good sound quality.

The last is an introduction of the smartphone app as an extra.
An application specialized in TOEIC score up, operated by a major recruit company. The standard in the standard. If you get high score without going to school or school, it is “the strongest application” so far.
Listening, reading, and English words are all integrated, and it is as convenient as it can be said that one is unnecessary. The contents are updated regularly, so the latest TOEIC measures are batched up.
Masao Seki, who takes TOEIC exam every time, explains the TOEIC solution in a lecture format. It is not cheap at 2,980 yen per month, but it is recommended for those who have unusually rich content, who can not attend even if they have no time and can attend TOEIC specialists, and who want to study at their own pace.
