TOEFL


 The purpose of the Test of English as a Foreign language (TOEFL) is to evaluate the English proficiency of people whose native language is not English. The test was initially developed to measure the English proficiency of international students wishing to study at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and this continues to be its primary function. However, a number of academic institutions in other countries, as well as certain independent organizations, agencies, and foreign governments, have also found the test scores useful.
The TOEFL test is recommended for students at the eleventh  grade or above. List of institutions which accept TOEFL scores: In order to view the 6000+ schools which accepts TOEFL scores please visit the URL:

Difference between Internet and Paper based Tests:

 TOEFL IBT measures reading, Listening, speaking and writing skills and takes approximately 4  hours amd 30 minutes. It is given on computer 30 to 40 times a year at test centers throughout the world. TOEFL PBT measures listening, structure (grammar), reading and writing and takes approximately 3 hours 30 minutes. It is given using paper and pencil 6 times a year at test centers where TOEFL IBT is not available.

Use of Internet-based testing (IBT)?

Internet  based testing makes it possible to capture and score test-taker speech in the most efficient, standardized, and objective manner. Internet-based testing will also make it possible to greatly increase the number of test centers, which is good for test takers.

Lectures and conversations in the Listening section are longer, but note taking is allowed. In fact, note-taking is allowed throughout the entire test. The speech in the listening material sounds more natural, and one lecture may use a British or Australian accent. Also, there are new questions that measures understanding of a speaker's attitude, degree of certainty, and purpose.

TEST BENEFITSSS
The new TOEFL differs in important ways from previous versions of the test:

1. It tests all four language skills that are important for effective communication: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.
2. It will be delivered via the Internet in secure test centers around the world.
3. Some tasks require test takers to combine more than one skill.
2. Listen and then speak in response to a question.on.
3. Read, listen and then write in response to a question.
