Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Special – TOEIC – Review + Mini Test

Welcome back to another live coaching, everyone! I’m excited to bring you the follow up of last week’s video.  Today is the mini-test, which is compiled of 6 questions.  You will have to look at the questions first, but I do advise you to do them before I go over them.  Nonetheless, for people on my podcast (listening), they’re going to have to follow each question and each answer as I go.  So, I’ll repeat these questions out loud with the answers, and then I’ll go over the potential answers. I was thinking of doing 12 questions, but I think that would be far too much for my viewers out there. I, instead, decided to go with 6.
