About This Course
Your employees can refer to this comprehensive guide to help them reinforce or further develop their reading and listening comprehension skills that are assessed on the TOEIC Listening and Reading exam. These lessons provide opportunities for detailed study of listening and critical-thinking skills, conversation and short-talk comprehension strategies and tips for becoming an overall better listener.

Some lessons are devoted entirely to practice questions that enable users to complete sentences, fill-in-the-blanks and answer multiple-choice questions based on given reading passages.
About the Exam
TOEIC exams are assessment tests used in thousands of companies in 150 countries that help employers determine the level of an employee's English language comprehension and communication skills which are needed in the workplace. The paper-based Listening and Reading exam consists of two parts, each with 100 multiple-choice questions. Students are given 45 minutes to complete the Listening section and 75 minutes to complete the Reading section. Test scores are determined based on the number of questions answered correctly for each section, which are converted on a scale of 5-495. TOEIC exams are used to determine ability only; there are no passing or failing scores.
