I took the TOEIC for it passed over two years since the time I took the test last time. I went to bed earlier last night and got up a little earler this morning. Finally I got to the place for testing about an hour earlier! I could read the book on vocabulary before the test began. The author emphasized the importance of vocabulary study even for the adults in order to enlarge their understanding of the world. Right! I, actually, had a harder time figuring out the problems of listening part than I was in two years ago. Because I have been idle for a long period hardly studying any more, my intellectual growth seems to be stopped or even degraded.

Unless you continue to tease your brain, it will not remain the same as it was yesterday, but it will lose something everyday. TOEIC gave me a refreshing will to achieve a long-lasting intellectual growth.
