TOEIC Listening and Reading

The new TOEIC listening and reading exam consists of seven parts:

Listening component: 4 parts (100 questions)

Part 1: Photographs –> 10 questions

In this part, you will be given ten pictures with their corresponding questions. Each question will be a multiple choice question. You will hear four statements about the picture and you must mark the answer that corresponds best to the statement heard.

Part 2: Question-Response  –> 30 questions

In this part, you will hear a question and a statement and three responses spoken in English. You must select the correct response.

For ex, you will hear the following question and the three responses as follows:

Do you have the time?

a. I’m sorry, I forgot to wear my watch this morning

b. It is at home

c. No, I left it in my office

The correct answer is ‘a’, I’m sorry, I forgot to wear my watch this morning

Part 3: Short conversations  –> 30 questions

In this part, you will hear some conversations between people. You will be asked to answer three questions pertaining to the conversation. Each question will be a multiple-choice question.

Part 4: Short talks  –> 30 questions

In this part, you will hear a short talk given a single speaker. You will be asked to answer three questions pertaining to the talk. Each question will be a multiple-choice question.

Reading component: 3 parts

Part 5: Incomplete sentences  –> 40 questions

A word or phrase will be missing from the sentences given. You have to identify the correct word or phrase from the options provided.

Part 6: Text completion  –> 12 questions

A text will be provided (an email, a letter, etc) with word(s) or phrase(s) missing from the text. You will have to identify the correct word or phrase from the options provided.

Part 7: Reading comprehension (single and double passages)  –> 38 questions 

This part is a traditional reading comprehension test where you have to read one passage and choose the correct answer from the options. A double passage comprehension means that you will either have a passage within a passage (for ex, a table and an explanatory note) or two passages (for ex, a letter and a response to the letter).

While the listening component will really test your listening skills, the reading component will test your grammar and vocabulary in parts 5 and 6, concentrating fully on your reading skills in part 7.
