Synopsis:
THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE WITH OR WITHOUT THE AUDIO CDs. THIS VERSION IS THE BOOK ONLY!!

Delta's Key to the Next Generation TOEFL Test: Advanced Skill Practice for the iBT is a new series of high-quality practice materials for students preparing to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language Internet-based Test (TOEFL iBT).

This test, introduced in September 2005, replaces the earlier computer-based test known as the TOEFL CBT. The iBT assesses proficiency in the four language skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing. The most important changes in the test are:

  • Speaking skills are evaluated.
  • Some tasks involve integrated skills, such as reading/listening/writing.
  • Knowledge of grammar is not tested separately but is assessed indirectly throughout the test.

Features & Benefits
Delta s Key to the Next Generation TOEFL Test is designed specifically for the new version of the test. The course provides ample practice in the English skills evaluated by the new test, along with useful strategies and practical ideas for individual, pair and group activities.

Reading and listening content includes explanation of new item types, such as questions about pragmatics, paraphrasing, and summarizing information from across a text. Speaking and writing content includes practice in integrated-skills tasks, such as developing a topic, taking notes, and connecting information from two sources.

Delta s Key to the Next Generation TOEFL Test consists of 36 units in four skill areas, four complete practice tests, over 1,200 questions, an answer key and audio script, progress charts, and 9 hours of audio on 10 CD s.

These five key elements add up to greater confidence and higher scores:

  • Focus-An opening exercise to focus attention, activate prior learning, and stimulate inductive thinking
  • Do You Know...?-A description of a specific skill in reading, listening, speaking, or writing that defines relevant concepts, provides sample questions, explains answers, and identifies useful test strategies
  • Practice-Sets of practice questions to foster ease with TOEFL Test form and content, challenge students to apply their skills, and build skill retention
  • Extension-Classroom activities that promote cooperation, stimulate discussion, extend skill practice, guide peer review, and link the classroom with the real world
  • Progress-Thirty-four timed quizzes simulating parts of the TOEFL Test, with each quiz evaluating the skills studied in one or more units

Market Comparison
Delta s Key to the Next Generation TOEFL Test is considered by most students and instructors to be the best TOEFL preparation course on the market. This program is well organized, easy to use, and is flexible enough for classroom use or independent study. It contains more strategies, practice exercises, classroom activities, and complete practice tests than the other preparation courses.
