TOEFL iBT - Test of English as a Foreign Language

What is the TOEFL iBT?

The TOEFL test assesses the ability of non-native English speakers to participate in the university classroom. It measures their skills in using and understanding the English language as it is heard, spoken, read and written in an academic setting. Recently, TOEFL has revolutionized from the former Computer-Based Test (CBT) and Paper and Pencil Test (PBT) into a more expedient Internet-Based Test (iBT).  The TOEFL test is organized by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and is offered more than 50 times a year. It is administered online at more than 4,500 testing sites in 165 countries.

The TOEFL is divided into four parts: listening, reading, speaking and writing.

During the test, candidates will be asked to perform tasks that combine more than one of the above skills, such as:
