What is TOEIC?
The TOEIC (Test Of English for International Communication) Listening and Reading Test is the world’s most widely-used test of workplace English. Recognised and trusted by many of the largest and most prestigious companies in Asia (China, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, and Thailand), Europe (France), and South America (Chile), the TOEIC Listening and Reading Test can open test-takers to greater career opportunities and improved competitiveness in today’s global working environment.
TOEIC is one of the English-language exams offered by ETS Global, a non-profit organisation operating in over 60 countries worldwide.
The TOEIC Listening and Reading Test tests candidates’ proficiency in reading and listening comprehension in common life and work situations. At Atlas we do not currently offer TOEIC Speaking and Writing Tests.
