The Test of English for International Communication® (TOEIC) is “an English language test designed specifically to measure the everyday English skills of people working in an international environment.”

There are different forms of the exam: The TOEIC Listening & Reading Test consists of two equally graded tests of comprehension assessment activities totalling a possible 990 score; There are also the TOEIC Speaking and Writing Tests. The TOEIC speaking test is composed of tasks that assess pronunciation, intonation and stress, vocabulary, grammar, cohesion, relevance of content and completeness of content. The TOEIC Writing test is composed of tasks that assess grammar, relevance of sentences to the pictures, quality and variety of sentences, vocabulary, organisation, and whether the opinion is supported with reason and/or examples. Both assessments use a score scale of 0 – 200.

Accepted and trusted by 14,000+ organizations in more than 160 countries, the TOEIC® tests assess your English-language proficiency across all four language skills needed to succeed in the global workplace — listening, reading, speaking and writing.

With your TOEIC score, you can:

  • Get a fair, accurate evaluation of your ability to communicate in English
  • Show potential employers your full range of communication skills
  • Differentiate yourself from the competition
  • Expand your job opportunities

TOEIC Bridge Test

As a fair and objective measure of English proficiency for beginning to lower-intermediate level learners, the TOEIC Bridge test enables you to verify your current level of English-language proficiency, set your own goals and monitor your progress in learning English. The test examines comprehensive Listening and Reading skills and prepares you for the next level of English-language learning.

The TOEIC Bridge test is an accurate measure of proficiency in beginning to intermediate English. It can help you:

  • show instructors or employers you are ready for success at the next academic or workplace level
  • be placed at the appropriate level in a program
  • establish personal language-learning goals and monitor your progress
  • learn which areas you need improvement in

TOEIC Bridge is often used by institutions seeking a “starter test” for new language learners who may lack confidence in their abilities. Some examples of such users would include adult education programs, vocational programs, and government ministries working to promote English language learning.

CEFR

logo-cefr

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessmentabbreviated in English as CEFR or CEF, is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe and, increasingly, in other countries.

It was put together by the Council of Europe as the main part of the project “Language Learning for European Citizenship” between 1989 and 1996. Its main aim is to provide a method of learning, teaching and assessing which applies to all languages in Europe.

In November 2001, a European Union Council Resolution recommended using the CEFR to set up systems of validation of language ability. The six reference levels are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.
