. Since the TOEIC focuses on the use of English in the world of business, it is ideal for candidates who use English in a professional context and seek an overall measure of their language skills. A multitude of companies all over the world accept the TOEIC certificate as verification of English language proficiency for professional contexts.

There are three different TOEIC formats: The Listening and Reading Test (L&R), the Speaking and Writing Test (S&W), and the 4Skills Test.

The Listening and Reading Test examines listening and reading skills only. Sprachenakademie Aachen offers this test format as a paperbased examination several times each year.
ETS and LTS are entirely responsible for the registration procedure  as well as the organisation of the exam: Sprachenakademie Aachen cannot influence these processes. You can register for the TOEIC L&R exam via the LTS website.

The Speaking and Writing Test is conducted exclusively online and focuses on speaking and writing skills.

The 4Skills Test, which combines the TOEIC  L&R and the TOEIC S&W, examines all four skills. The Speaking and Writing Test and the 4Skills Test can be taken at Sprachenakademie Aachen upon request only; there are currently no regularly scheduled dates for these formats.
