Completing your TOEIC preparation abroad
You need to know where you want to go, and also understand that it can be quite difficult to find TOEIC preparation group courses – private lessons are expensive, ranging from €25/H in Malta to more than 100€/H in renowned schools in London and New York. Group courses are harder to find outside of inhouse training or corporate training centres. Some language schools to offer then but you would need to check.
In Ireland or in Malta
One solution is to choose Ireland or Malta, as you can prepare for your TOEIC exam and sit it on the spot, but be aware that there are not many TOEIC exam centres in either of these countries, as not many people wish to take the exam except those from France or Japan. IDEALANGUES can also help you find specialised TOEIC preparation schools in both of these countries.

In specific classes
Since the TOEIC exam tests your knowledge of English in a professional context, you can always sign up for a Business English or English for Work course abroad, while simultaneously following an online course. The classes will help you to improve your general level of English and will indirectly help you to prepare for the test, while learning the exam techniques, specific vocabulary, and warn you about pitfalls to avoid.
To conclude, joining an online TOEIC preparation course and going on an immersive stay abroad are two complementary tools you can use to maximise your chances of obtaining the highest TOEIC scores, whether you are a student who is required to pass the test in order to complete their diploma, or a professional who receives OPCA funding in order to perfect their business English.

One other options is attending a summer school abroad. There are many different options for this. In the United Kingdom, summer language courses are plentiful for all age groups. Many companies run summer camps for young learners to teenagers and some universities run different courses for language improvement. They are worth looking into. Many are also residential so that’s one thing less to have to sort out.
