The TOEFL® ( Test of English as a Foreign Language ™) test measures the ability of nonnative speakers of English to use and understand English as it is spoken, written, and heard in college and university settings.
Internet Based TOEFL
The TOEFL® iBT (Internet-based Test) tests all four language skills that are important for effective communication: reading, listening, speaking and writing. The test helps students demonstrate that they have the English skills needed for success. The TOEFL iBT emphasizes integrated skills and provides better information to institutions about students' ability to communicate in an academic setting and their readiness for academic coursework. With Internet-based testing, ETS can capture speech and score responses in a standardized manner.
The TOEFL iBT measures skills in reading, listening, speaking and writing, and requires you to combine 2 or more of these skills to respond to a question. For example, you might read a passage or listen to a lecture in English, and then write or speak your answers in English.
You can also review sample test questions to become more familiar with how the TOEFL iBT is structured and formatted and what type of content it contains.
- You will be able to review examples of conversations, lectures, reading passages, writing samples, spoken responses and more.
- You will also be able to answer questions and check your answers.
- You will not receive a score on these sample sections.
