What is the TOEIC?

TOEIC stands for Test of English for International Communication. It is a diagnostic test often used to hire, place and promote employees. It was developed by Educational Testing Service (ETS) and this official organisation administers the test.

The TOEIC doesn’t serve to ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ candidates but confers upon each candidate a score, a score that enables one to evaluate one’s ability to understand, use and communicate in English.
