TOEFL-Test of English as a Foreign Language    

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is used to evaluate the English proficiency of students whose first language is not English.  It evaluates the student’s knowledge of English at the intermediate to advanced levels of English language studies.

The Institutional TOEFL is on a paper/pencil format and has three multiple-choice sections:

  • Listening Comprehension – this section measures the ability to understand English as it is spoken in the United States.
  • Structure and Written Expression – this section measures the ability to recognize language that is appropriate for standard written English.
  • Reading Comprehension – this section measures the ability to understand non-technical reading matter.

The approximate time for the TOEFL test is 2.5 hours.
