Details This paper reports on the use of can-do statements (CDS) for the development of learning materials to prepare Japanese university students for the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC). These learning materials have been made available on ATR CALL BRIX (http://www.atr-lt.jp/products/brix/index.html), a www-based courseware with a learning management system (LMS) which contains study logs, achievement rate reports on student-set goals, the identification of students’ weak points, and advice on test-taking strategies.
