TOEIC Practice Session

TOEIC TourBefore going any further with the TOEIC Practice, make sure you have read the previous posting.

Now we are going to look at some examples from each section. When you are first learning about the TOEIC it is helpful to read the listening sections. Later, when you are familiar with the structure, you will want to practise with a tape or CD.

For this practice session, any words that you see in red are words you would hear on a recording in the real test. Any words you see in blue are words you would read in your test booklet.

*Make sure to read the explanatory answers for each example, even if you answer a question correctly. Explanatory answers identify common distractors (wrong answers) and reasons why an answer is correct or incorrect.

When you have finished the examples, read these 20 TOEIC Tips.

TOEIC: Test Of English for International Communication

TOEIC TourTOEIC is a standardized test that measures your listening and reading skills. Unlike other tests, the TOEIC evaluates your ability to function in the business world rather than in an academic setting.

The test consists of 200 multiple-choice questions. Some students take the TOEIC because they want to improve their English. Other students take the TOEIC because they want to apply for a job that requires a TOEIC score.

Your score will range from 10-990. Every institution expects a different standard of proficiency from its employees. Many companies expect entry level applicants to score at least 600 on the TOEIC. Management positions may require a score of 800. You can take the TOEIC as many times as you want in order to achieve your goal.

Here is a general proficiency table:

TOEIC Scores
Below 400: Beginner
400-600: Intermediate
600-700: High Intermediate
800-900: Advanced
