50 Grammar Lessons for the TOEIC

Updated:

The TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) is a standardized English test oriented towards professionals and companies.

The TOEIC is actually two separate tests, one which tests the receptive English skills (reading and listening) and one which tests the productive English skills (speaking and writing).

Students can choose to take both TOEIC tests, or just one of the two, depending on their needs.

The structure of each of the two tests is unique and the scoring is also different.

There are a variety of TOEIC preparation methods available, from self-study to courses and practice tests.
