ABOUT THE TOEFL TEST

The TOEFL test measures the ability of non-native English speakers to communicate in English in an academic setting. It accurately measures how well students can read, listen, speak and write in English in the college or university classroom.
TOEFL testing takes place in more than 165 countries, and TOEFL scores are accepted by over 8,500 institutions and licensing agencies and immigration services around the world. More institutions accept TOEFL scores than any other English-language test, and over 27 million people have taken the test since it began in 1964. The TOEFL test is the one test that can take you anywhere.
Scoring well on the TOEFL iBT means students can be eligible for admission to virtually any school in the world, including top colleges and universities in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THE TEST

Many American and English-speaking colleges and universities require non-native speakers of English to get a certain score on this test before they are admitted into their actual academic programs. In addition, foreign born professionals frequently need a TOEFL score for certification to practice their profession in the United States or Canada.
Proficiency in English is essential if you are to follow class discussions and complete the reading and writing assignments in most college classes. In many courses, you may also be required to deliver oral presentations. And if you are applying to a graduate program, you may be given a position as a teaching assistant, which means you will be expected to help undergraduate students with their schoolwork, instruct them, and grade their assignments. In order to ensure that you can succeed even though you are not studying in your native language, and that you will be a competent teaching assistant if you are applying to graduate school, colleges and other institutions may require you to take the TOEFL. To determine if you need to take the TOEFL, you should contact each institution to which you are applying for admission.

The TOEFL is administered worldwide by Educational Testing Service (ETS).

You will receive 4 scaled section scores and a total score:

  • Reading (0-30)
  • Listening (0-30)
  • Speaking (0-30)
  • Writing (0-30)
  • Total Score (0-120)
In addition to numeric scores, your test taker score record will include performance feedback that indicates your performance level and a description of the kinds of tasks that test takers within that specific score range can typically do.

Validity

TOEFL scores remain valid for 2 years after the test date. Because language proficiency can change considerably in a relatively short period of time, TOEFL scores more than 2 years old cannot be reported or verified.
