About the TOEFL
The Test of English as a Foreign Language is a standardized exam that measures the ability of non-native English speakers to use and understand English at the college level. Test questions combine reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills as used in an academic setting. The TOEFL consists of four sections: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. The test takes a total of about 4 hours and 30 minutes to complete. The TOEFL is the English-language test most preferred by universities in the United States, France, Germany, and by graduate programs in Canada. In addition to students wishing to enroll in English-speaking universities, TOEFL takers include scholarship and certification candidates and students and workers applying for visas.
