What the TOEIC Program can do for you
Organizations and job seekers around the world rely on TOEIC test scores to help them get ahead of the competition. In an increasingly globalized world, having proven English-language skills presents a significant advantage to anyone with international career aspirations. Individuals who can demonstrate their ability to communicate in English will discover employment opportunities that may otherwise have not been available, while organizations with an English-language proficient workforce can gain access to a new world of business possibilities and international collaborations.
Backed by research and rigorous quality standards, the TOEIC tests are specifically designed to measure an individual’s ability to communicate English across four key skill areas: listening, reading, speaking and writing. The tests are mapped to CEFR levels, giving comprehensive and comparable data you need to accurately and objectively evaluate individuals across times and locations, regardless of each test taker’s background.
The TOEIC® products and services portfolio includes:
