Updates to the TOEIC® Listening and Reading Test in Japan and Korea

Starting in May 2016, the TOEIC® Listening and Reading test will include some updated question formats to reflect the changing use of English and the ways in which individuals commonly communicate in everyday social and workplace situations around the world. The updates will take effect in Japan and Korea only beginning with the public test in May 2016. The updates will not impact the rest of the world at this time. ETS will notify all markets in advance of the updates taking effect to ensure ample time for test takers and score users to prepare.
