With more than 7 million candidates annually, TOEIC tests are the world's most frequently performed language tests for professional English.

TOEIC is suitable for all language levels and assesses either two or four language competences depending on the test: TOEIC Listening and Reading, TOEIC Speaking and Writing, or TOEIC 4Skills, which combines all four areas of competence.

TOEFL tests are used for school and academic purposes, and are often demanded by universities and academic institutions as an admission requirement. A distinction is made between the internationally widely used TOEFL iBT ("Internet Based Test") and the TOEFL ITP ("Institutional Testing Program"). Which of the two tests is required depends on the country and institution and should be clarified in advance. In addition, the TOEFL Primary and TOEFL Junior are available for school age learners.
