As with the TOEFL, the objective in Cornerstone’s TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) class is to provide content-based methodology coupled with focused drills and reinforcement.
Our program allows for 2 hours of class time per day. Class time is divided equally between Listening Comprehension and Reading Comprehension. It is necessary that all sections of the TOEIC test be covered each month. Students spend class time engaging in skill-building exercises for all seven sections of the TOEIC.
A practice TOEIC test is given at the end of each month. The students’ scores on this practice test will provide the basis for their monthly assessment.
As well, Cornerstone Academic College is an official TOEIC testing center, and an opportunity to take the official TOEIC test is offered each session.
An important part of TOEIC preparation is giving helpful advice and information about test taking techniques. Therefore, during all exercises, teachers give students feedback and recommendations on how to approach the test.
