Program description

Successful TOEIC preparation includes improving specific English skills and developing test-taking strategies. This program will help you do both!

Our TOEIC preparation instructors use the latest software and textbooks to help you build the language skills needed for success on the TOEIC exams, including:

  • reading
  • listening
  • writing
  • speaking
  • organization
  • use of grammar
  • vocabulary
  • pronunciation
  • intonation

Most students take this course as a four-hour weekly elective class in the 12-week Intensive English (ELPI) program, to enjoy the benefits of a full-time program while also spending time each week on TOEIC exam preparation (no additional tuition fees apply).

If you already live in the Victoria and are looking for weekly TOEIC preparation, you’ll enjoy joining our ELPI students for four hours at UVic each week in this part-time program.
