TOEIC testing at LIFE Jr. College on Saturday, August 14th
TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) is a standardized English language proficiency test (国際コミュニケーション英語能力テスト) for non-native speakers that is designed to measure the everyday English skills of people who work in an international environment. Having a good TOEIC score is very helpful for students seeking employment opportunities after graduating from LIFE Jr. College.
There are several different forms of the TOEIC, but the most common is the Listening and Reading (L&R) version. A perfect score on the TOEIC L&R is 990. At LIFE Jr. College in Okinawa Prefecture (沖縄県), the IP (Institutional Program) version of the Listening and Reading examination will be administered by the LIFE Jr. College English Department on Saturday, August 14th. This date is subject to change.
This service is available only to current students at LIFE Jr. College. The deadline (final day) to sign up for this TOEIC is on Thursday, July 8th. Current students at LIFE Jr. College should go to the main office in order to request for a TOEIC sign up form. Others – including graduates of LIFE Jr. College – who wish to take the TOEIC in Japan should visit the Institute of International Business Communication (IIBC) website here and signup for the next available TOEIC. IIBC offers the TOEIC at numerous locations throughout Japan at various times each year.
At LIFE Jr. College, many different countermeasures have been put into place to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (read the Blog). Students who do not comply with these measures will not be allowed to take the TOEIC test on that date.
Normally, the English Department at LIFE Jr. College administers the TOEIC twice each academic year. This is in addition to EIKEN (英検) English language proficiency tests which are offered three times each year. If you have any questions regarding the TOEIC or EIKEN, please consult with the English Department at LIFE Jr. College.
