Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is an exam which is conducted to measure the skills of those nonnative English speakers who understand and use North American English as the way it is heard, spoken and written in universities and colleges. Most of the candidates who appear for TOEFL test plan to study at colleges and universities where instruction is in English.

The TOEFL iBT® test is given in English and administered via the internet. There are four sections (listening, reading, speaking and writing) which take a total of about four and a half hours to complete and each section is taken online.

When you register for a TOEFL iBT test, you can also order the TOEFL Value Pack Premium, which includes test preparation materials, eight additional score reports. If you're not sure whether the TOEFL iBT® test is offered in your location, check your location before you register.
