The TOEFL test measures the ability of non-native English speakers to use and understand English as it’s read, written, heard and spoken in the university classroom.
If you want to study at an English-speaking university or program, no other test can get you to as many destinations around the world as the TOEFL test.
In most test centers worldwide, you’ll take the TOEFL iBT® test on a computer. However, the TOEFL test is administered as a paper-based test (TOEFL® PBT) in a few places where testing via the Internet is not available.
The TOEFL test measures all four English-language skills. It takes about four hours.
