TOEIC Preparation

Students at RELA can prepare for the TOEIC test in our afternoon Exam Skills class. Most students combine this with our General English course in the morning. For more information on the TOEIC test click here

Susanne Galler - TOEIC Preparation Course teacher

The TOEIC is an American English examination for those using English in their jobs, and will give you plenty of practice of American pronunciation and spelling. Susanne is our main TOEIC teacher. She has been teaching the class for many years, and she knows exactly how to help students with the typical problems they will face in the test. Her students have given their ideas about how the TOEIC class has helped them, which you can read below.

It is recommended that students should be at Upper Intermediate or Advanced level before they start TOEIC preparation, but it is sometimes possible for Intermediate students to join the class. TOEIC students have said the class is useful because:

  • it extends your business vocabulary
  • it helps you speak and write well for the workplace
  • it helps you read texts used at work
  • it helps you differentiate between similar words and sounds
  • it helps you understand newspapers
  • it teaches you good test-taking techniques
  • a good TOEIC test score is useful when job-hunting

Self Study:

For all exam courses we offer you 6 hours of specialised self-study hours at these times:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 3.15 ~ 4.45

RELA’s self-study tutors are very well trained in supporting exam students. They can give you practice tests, find out what you most need and then support you with targeted study materials. The self-study tutors work closely with the DOS and your exam class teacher to make sure your needs are met.

There is a strong expectation that exam class students make the most of self-study!

Note: There is a TOEIC examination centre in Taupo and also in Hamilton, an hour’s drive from Rotorua. We can arrange for you to take the exam there if you want. Many students take the RELA TOEIC preparation class just to improve their grammar, business vocabulary and reading, writing and listening ability, rather than because they want to take the examination.
