TOEIC is well known as a kind of benchmark to measure our ability of English in Japan. It is said, though, only Japanese and Korean are keen to get high score of TOEIC and many Americans don't know even the existence of this test.
Some people criticize that TOEFL is better, many Americans and Europeans don't know TOEIC, TOEIC doesn't capture the ability of speaking and writing and so on.
I use this test as a measure of my ability of English, and I used to think that its score itself is not my objective. But recently I've changed my thought. I do understand TOEIC has some flaws, but I think I need to get almost full score because it's so much easier than what we actually need.
In Japan, we can choose another tests such as Eiken, TOEFL, IELST, and so on. But both TOEFL and IELFS cost so much!
As mentioned, I used to think the score itself is not my objective, but recently I got its official book of their exams so that I could learn in which part I lost my scores. (in TOEIC test, we cannot bring the exam to home and we cannot know in which section how many questions we can answer correctly.)
Last weekend, I tried it and now I understood my weakness. Fortunately it's not the lack of knowledge but lack of careful mind. Next time I'm goint to take much care in Part 3 and Part 5!
It seems next test would be October's one. Until that time, I'll study hard!
