TOEIC Growth Continues

The number of people taking the TOEIC continues to rise. The Institute for International Business Communication, which administers the test in Japan, announced that the total number of people who sat the test in 2003 was 1.42 million, up 7.5% from 2002. Behind the jump were the increasing use of the test by businesses and educational institutions, the opening of two new test centers, and an increase in the number of annual tests from 7 to 8. IIBC hopes to break the 1.5 million barrier this year.
