    Developing TOEIC Software

    I want to start planning a sofware application fro helping learners prepare for the TOEIC exam.

    I am just starting to think about how to approach it, and I'd like to hear from teachers and learners about what features and methods would be useful.

    I'd also like to hear about any text books or software for TOEIC or similar exams that you found expecially good.

    Thank you, that was very useful. If anyone else has any good ideas, please post them.

    I'm thinking along the lines of an application that can download new material as it comes available and charts the learner's progress.

    I'll ask in the students' section as well.

    Would this be downloading materials as you created them? So,they'd have the software on their machine and it would check for updates, likes an anti-virus program and record results, etc? If so, it sounds very interesting.

    Yes, that way I can keep adding tests or other teachers could make them and share them with everyone.

    Yes. Do you want to do it for me? :D

    Here's a game I'm finishing up at the moment:




    I thought I'd better make something more directly to do with English teaching, since that's what pays the bills/overseas holidays/ cars/other toys :)

    Not much response here, but I know there are a lot of good teachers here, so if anyone can tell me what they are using for teaching TOEIC/ TOEFL I'd be really happy.

    Thanks.
