Designed to assess the emerging skills of beginner and mid-level learners, the TOEIC Bridge test is the ideal solution to measure basic English-language listening and reading skills used in an everyday context.
Schools, colleges, language schools and businesses can offer the TOEIC Bridge to their clientele in private institutional or corporate test sessions.
The TOEIC Bridge test is a paper-based, multiple-choice test that measures an individual’s ability to listen to and read everyday English. It takes 60 minutes to complete and consists of 50 questions divided equally into two sections:
The Listening Comprehension section takes approximately 25 minutes to complete and requires test-takers to listen to recorded statements, questions, short conversations and short talks in English, and then answer questions based on what they have heard.
The Reading Comprehension section takes approximately 35 minutes to complete and requires test takers to read single sentences as well as texts, and then answer questions based on what they have read.
Results to the test, valid for 2 years, span between 20 and 180 points (10 to 90 points for each section) and are mapped on the CEFR scales.
The TOEIC Bridge test is appropriate for high school, college and university students or immigrants and professionals who are beginning their English-language learning process.
The test uses common everyday vocabulary, phrases and key expressions that reflect real-world tasks, and its scores provide information that enables teachers and tutors to:
- Create homogeneous learner groups;
- Highlight areas to improve;
- Motivate learners;
- Evaluate the efficiency of existing English-learning programs;
- Monitor learners’ progress and verify if given objectives were achieved.
