CENTRE FOR THE TOEIC TEST

The test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) is a test to assess the knowledge of English for students of different mother tongues. It is designed to evaluate the everyday linguistic capabilities of people who work in international environments. The grades obtained in the test indicate the level of capability to communicate in English in a business environment, in commerce and in industry. The test does not require specialist knowledge of the language or of vocabulary apart from the level of English used in a daily work environment. The TOEIC test is a multiple-choice examination that lasts two hours and is divided into two sections, comprehension and reading. A good grade obtained in the TOEIC test  adds value to a CV and constitutes an excellent credential in job applications. The school sets the TOEIC test in its classrooms once a month
