TOEIC Bridge® Listening & Reading Tests
Test Format and Content
The TOEIC Bridge Listening & Reading Tests use optically-scanned answer sheets. There are 100 questions to answer in about one hour in Listening (approximately 25 minutes, 50 questions) and Reading (35 minutes, 50 questions).
The tests are only in English. There are no questions involving translating from Japanese to English, or from English to Japanese. The directions are also only in English. The question formats are the same each time year. The answers are all given on a separate answer sheet, where you select the number that best corresponds with the answer and fill it in with your pencil.
