How is the TOEIC course structured?

The TOEIC test is structured in two separate parts (the listening & reading test and the speaking & writing test). Students can select whether to complete both sections or just one.

Listening & Reading Test

Within the listening test, students will be required to answer questions based on a previous listening piece, which will consist of a series of photographs, short talks, conversations and simple questions. Throughout the reading test, students will be required to read several materials and then will work on the following tasks:

  • Complete sentences
  • Recognize errors
  • Answer comprehension questions

If a student wishes to complete the two sections as explained above, they can complete the following speaking and writing test.
