Launched in 1979, the TOEIC Listening and Reading test has set the standard for assessing English-language listening and reading skills needed in the business environment:
- Listening skills are important for face-to-face communication, meetings, video conferencing, podcasts and telephone conversations.
- Reading skills are necessary for email, reports, newsletters and other forms of business correspondence.
These are two especially important foundation skills, through which the other two skills – Speaking and Writing – can be indirectly assessed.

In Vietnam, the TOEIC test has been used as one of graduation requirements at more than 130 universities, colleges, vocational schools and as a hiring criterion in nearly 500 major companies nationwide.
Every candidate taking the TOEIC test receives a score certificate with their score on each section of the test.

The certificate also provides detailed score analysis and the percentage of questions the test taker answered correctly for specific abilities measured, which helps candidates to understand their strengths and opportunities for improvement.
