Test Of English as a Foreign Language, TOEFL®
The Test Of English as a Foreign Language, TOEFL®, offers colleges and universities the opportunity to administer a convenient, affordable and reliable assessment of English language skills. The TOEFL itp® tests are paper-based and use academic and social content to evaluate the English language proficiency of non-native English speakers in a real-world academic setting. The test evaluates skills in three areas: listening comprehension, reading comprehension and selected structural and grammatical points in standard written English.
Please note: The TOEFL itp® is NOT the same as the much more comprehensive and internet-based Test of English as a Foreign Language, TOEFL iBT (testing four skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing) which serves as an admission requirement for studies at numerous universities in English-speaking countries, especially the USA.
The TOEFL itp® only assesses the receptive language skills, i.e. listening and reading as well as your knowledge of specific grammar skills; there is no evaluation of speaking and writing skills.
