TOEIC exam – What is it, and why would you want it?

What is TOEIC?

The Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) is an exam designed to test the skills of individuals who are studying English as a foreign language, and will need to speak, write and read the language confidently for employment or educational purposes.


The TOEIC qualification is recognised internationally, employers and educational establishments worldwide use it as a basis to assess the language skills of individuals. The test covers all aspects of language learning. The main test has two key categories: listening and reading, and lasts two hours with a total of 200 questions, separate to this is the speaking and writing section, which takes about an hour.

By completing a TOEIC examination, you will not only have proved your competency in speaking the language, but you will have the confidence to communicate in English on a worldwide scale. Due to English being the corporate language of the world, having a good level of a foreign language is just as important as professional experiences to a lot of companies.
