TOEIC test - the certificate for the business world
Improve your career prospects with activity-based business English.
TOEIC - the Test of English for International Communication - comes from ETS (Educational Testing Service), just like the TOEFL test. However, unlike the TOEFL, which is more geared towards the academic language, the TOEIC test focuses on English in the business world.
It is used as a certification tool by 5,000 companies around the world and assesses listening and reading comprehension in business English. The test is particularly popular with international companies, as it makes it possible to compare the language skills of every employee. Many also use the test to evaluate the effectiveness of training measures.
According to ETS, over 4.5 million people sit this examination every year. It takes about 2.5 hours and is divided into a listening section (45 min), and a reading comprehension section (75 min), each with 100 questions.
