Test Preparation Tips

There are several things you can do every day to prepare for the TOEIC® Listening and Reading test. The more you practice, the easier it gets.

  • Listen
    Listen to music, online broadcasts, radio, television and movies in English. The more you listen, the more you will understand vocabulary, idioms and expressions. Music helps you acquire the rhythm and stress patterns of spoken English. Listen closely to the words.
  • Read
    Reading is the best way to improve your vocabulary. English-language reading materials — newspapers, magazines, books and websites — are always available. Choose your favorites! Read material that genuinely interests you and isn’t too challenging.
  • Use the Language Every Day
    Set aside time each day to communicate only in English. Listen, read, speak and write in English every chance you get. The more you use the language, the better you'll become.
  • Keep a Journal
    Write down what happens in your life every day. This is a great way to organize your thoughts and think in English. Read to yourself and read out loud. This will also help you listen to how the words sound.
