What is the TOEFL?
TOEFL stands for ‘Test of English as a Foreign Language’. Traditionally the TOEFL is offered in two modes — paper-based (where internet connectivity is very poor) and internet-based or iBT. In India, the internet-based test is in vogue, with the test being conducted in major cities on pre-scheduled dates.
The TOEFL® test is the most widely respected English-language test in the world, recognized by more than 9,000 colleges, universities and agencies in more than 130 countries, including Australia, Canada, the U.K. and the United States. Wherever you want to study, the TOEFL test can help you get there.
Structure of the TOEFL:
The TOEFL combines the following skills — listening, reading, speaking and writing. The test is for a duration of around 4 to 4.5 hours with a 10-minute break in between. The order of the test modules is as follows:
- Reading: 36 to 56 questions — read 3 or 4 passages and answer questions based on the passages.
- Listening: 34 to 51 questions — listen to lectures, classroom discussions and conversations, and then answer questions.
- Speaking: Speak on a prescribed topic.
- Writing: Write essays on the prescribed topic; the topic is generally linked to the content used in the reading and listening modules.
