What is TOEFL?

The TOEFL test (Test of English as a Foreign Language) measures your ability to use and understand the English language as it’s read, written, heard and spoken in the university classroom.

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) 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.

As the most accepted English-language test in the world, more than 7,000 universities, agencies, and other institutions in more than 130 countries accept the TOEFL test as part of their admissions criteria — including nearly every college and university in Australia and the UK. TOEFL test measures your ability to integrate the four English skills you need in an academic setting, making it the most comprehensive academic English test available.


The test, often referred to as the TOEFL iBT™ test, is administered at more than 4,500 test sites around the world. A paper-based version of the test is available in areas where TOEFL iBT testing is not possible.


In order for the TOEFL iBT to measure how well you read, listen, speak and write in English, and how well you use these skills together, you’ll be asked to integrate these skills for the test. For example, you may read a passage or listen to a lecture, and then write or speak about what you learned.


The TOEFL test is offered in more locations around the world than any other English-language test, making it easier for you to find a convenient location.

 For instance, the TOEFL iBT™ is given on predetermined dates, 30-40 times a year, at thousands of secure, Internet-based test sites around the globe.

 The TOEFL Paper-based Test (or TOEFL PBT) is offered in areas where the TOEFL iBT is not available, and is given 6 times a year. You can register online or by mail.

The TOEFL test measures your ability to integrate the four English skills you need in an academic setting, making it the most comprehensive academic English test available.

 Internet-based Test

The TOEFL® Internet-based test emphasizes integrated skills and measures all four language skills, including speaking. The content on the test is authentic, and the language is consistent with that used in everyday, real academic settings.

The test has four sections


1.    Reading measures the ability to understand academic reading matter.
2.    Listening measures the ability to understand English as it is used in colleges and universities.
3.    Speaking measures the ability to speak English.
4.    Writing measures the ability to write in a way that is appropriate for college and university course work.


Test content is based on a “corpus,” or database, of spoken and written language that currently contains more than 2.7 million words, collected from educational institutions throughout the United States. The spoken language in the database was collected from
•    Lectures and Interactive Classes
•    Labs
•    Office Hours
•    Study Groups
•    Everyday Service Interactions (for example, at the bookstore or registrar's office)


The written language was collected from sources, such as textbooks and course materials. Listening and reading texts in the test conform to the characteristics of the language in the database.


Paper-based Test

The paper-based TOEFL test has three sections plus a 30-minute writing test (the Test of Written English) that is required of everyone who takes the paper-based test.
•    Listening Comprehension measures the ability to understand English as it is spoken in North America.
•    Structure and Language measures the ability to recognize language that is appropriate for standard written English.
•    Reading Comprehension measures the ability to understand non-technical reading matter
There is no scheduled break during the paper-based test.


Anybody can appear for the TOEFL, as there are no restrictions on applicant age or qualifications. The validity period of TOEFL Scores is two years.


Registering online is the easiest method, giving you access to over 4,500 test sites in over 165 countries. You can also register by mail or by phone. Registration is available 3-4 months before the test date.

The cost depends on the location you’re testing in. To give you an idea, the cost ranges between US$150 and US$225.
