As part of BEA's language assessment, our Advanced and Intermediate English Language Course students take the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) at the end of each school year. The purpose of this test is to assess daily communication skills for using English in the workplace, which helps our students know if they're ready for a job in Siem Reap's tourist industry. The two-hour multiple-choice test consists of 200 questions that is divided into listening and reading comprehension. Also, the students' scores tell us where they rank among other students in other Southeast Asian countries. From last year's scores, the BEA kids were slightly above the average score for the entire Asian region. We're hoping that once we've totaled the results, the students did just as well, if not better, than last year!
