Test of English for International Communication


The TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) test is a global standard for assessing English proficiency for business.

The TOEIC test questions simulate real-life situations that are relevant to the global workplace. Score reports provide accurate, meaningful feedback about a test taker’s strengths and weaknesses, along with a description of the English language strengths typical of test takers performing at various score levels. This allows employers to:

  • Relate test scores to the tasks employees may perform on the job.
  • Use the descriptions to inform critical hiring and placement decisions.
  • Select the employee with the English-language abilities the job requires.

There are two separate TOEIC tests: The Listening and Reading test and the Speaking and Writing test.

Last year alone, the TOEIC test was taken by a record breaking 6 Million people worldwide – making it one of the most widely used language assessment tools in the world.
