In addition to the TOEIC family of tests and the TOEFL ITP test, Amideast offers a broad range of related services and products such as English language training for corporations and the general public, the ETS-developed Criterion Online Writing Evaluation Service, TOEFL Practice Online, and TOEIC Practice Online: Speaking & Writing.
"Amideast is pleased to work with ETS Global—the leader in the education testing field—to expand access to ETS testing solutions in the UAE. Assessments such as the TOEIC test offer important opportunities for both institutions and individuals to advance their competitive positions in the global marketplace," states Theodore Kattouf, President and CEO of Amideast.
