The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for international students seeking an admission to US universities and colleges for higher studies. TOEFL measures the ability of non-native speakers of English to use and understand North American English as it is spoken, written and heard in college and university settings. In addition, government agencies, scholarship programs and licensing/certification agencies use TOEFL scores to evaluate English Proficiency.
The IBT TOEFL measures how well you read, listen, speak and write in English and use these skills together in the university classroom. For example, you might read a passage or listen to a lecture, and then write or speak about what you learned.
