The TOEIC test is not based on the content of any particular English course but rather on your English-language proficiency—your overall ability to use English. Improvement in proficiency may take some time and is generally achieved through a combination of practice and study. The TOEIC test does not test business knowledge, and you are not required to know specialized business and technical vocabulary beyond what is used in everyday work activities.
Before taking the TOEIC test, there are several things you can do to prepare for the test and improve your English proficiency:
a. Become familiar with the test format and know how to mark your answers on the answer sheet. You can then focus your attention on the test questions themselves. Carefully review the test directions and the sample questions on pages 8–13 and the sample answer sheet and sample Background Questionnaire on pages 15–18.
b. Immerse yourself in the language as frequently as possible and in as many ways as possible if it has been some time since you have had contact with English. Reading, watching TV and videos, listening to recordings, taking an English course, and speaking with friends and colleagues are some of the ways to practice English.
c. Web Resource Guide The official TOEIC website has many resources you may find helpful to familiarize yourself with the test:
• test preparation material
