INCOMPLETE SENTENCES

In this multiple-choice section, you need to choose the best answer to complete a sentence. Your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary are both important in helping you understand the correct context of the sentence and in choosing the right answer. For example, you must be familiar with word forms such as nouns, adjectives, adverbs, etc. to know which one fits the sentence correctly.

ERROR RECOGNITION (OLD OR CLASSIC TOEIC TEST)

This part has been eliminated in the New TOEIC Listening and Reading Test, but still remains in the older version, used in many parts of the world. It is the section which tests your knowledge of grammar and its impact on the meaning of the sentence.

TEXT COMPLETION (NEW TOEIC TEST)

Here, you will be asked to fill in the blanks, as in the incomplete sentences section above. The difference is that the blanks are part of longer pieces of writing such as a letter.

READING COMPREHENSION

The reading comprehension section presents texts taken from a wide variety of contexts such as bulletins, advertisements, reports, tables, announcements, memos, etc. A number of questions follow. Reading skills such as skimming, scanning and understanding vocabulary in context are all useful here.

PHOTOGRAPHS

In this part, you see a photograph and hear four statements about it. The photo itself may portray people, things, actions and locations. You must select the sentence which best describes what you see in the picture. You hear the sentences only once, and must make your choice immediately after that, or else you’ll miss hearing information related to the next picture.

QUESTION-RESPONSE

In this part, you may be asked a question about almost any subject related to people, events, location, time, emotions, reasons, opinions or activities. You need to choose the answer that makes sense.
