    2015年度 英語・英米文学会講演会  2015/11  弘前学院大学  英語・英米文学会
     
    The main aim of the presentation is vocabulary knowledge required for the TOEFL Internet-based test. In the first part of this presentation, I will cover vocabulary size targets for the TOEFL test and then talk about which wordlists are found to be helpful to test takers. In the latter part, I will discuss connected speech, which is of value to those who can comprehend what English-speaking teachers say at class but have difficulty in identifying what the English-speaking teachers say in an informal setting. Connected speech is also crucial in listening to American English movies such as Frozen and Big Hero 6.
