The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Overview
Test Of English as a Foreign Language

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) measures the ability of nonnative speakers of English to use and understand English as it is spoken, written, and heard in college and university settings.
TOEFL scores are accepted by more than 6,000 colleges, universities, and licensing agencies in 110 countries. Every test center is open to everyone who is properly registered, regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin (subject to U.S. sanctions programs and embargoes).

Educational Testing Service (ETS) administers the tests under the general direction of a board that was established by, and is affiliated with, the College Board and the Graduate Record Examinations Board.

Test Content

After September 30, 2006, TOEFL CBT will no longer be offered. The TOEFL program is phasing in the Internet-based version of the TOEFL test - TOEFL iBT. In areas where TOEFL iBT is not yet available, the paper-based version of the TOEFL test will be offered to continue to provide access for TOEFL test takers in these areas.

Internet-based Test

The TOEFL® Internet-based test emphasizes integrated skills and measures all four language skills, including speaking. The content on the test is authentic, and the language is consistent with that used in everyday, real academic settings.

The test has four sections
  1. Reading measures the ability to understand academic reading matter.
  2. Listening measures the ability to understand English as it is used in colleges and universities.
  3. Speaking measures the ability to speak English.
  4. Writing measures the ability to write in a way that is appropriate for college and university course work.

Test content is based on a “corpus,” or database, of spoken and written language that currently contains more than 2.7 million words, collected from educational institutions throughout the United States. The spoken language in the database was collected from

  • Lectures and Interactive Classes
  • Labs
  • Office Hours
  • Study Groups
  • Everyday Service Interactions (for example, at the bookstore or registrar's office)
The written language was collected from sources, such as textbooks and course materials. Listening and reading texts in the test conform to the characteristics of the language in the database.

Paper-based Test

The paper-based TOEFL test has three sections plus a 30-minute writing test (the Test of Written English) that is required of everyone who takes the paper-based test.
  • Listening Comprehension measures the ability to understand English as it is spoken in North America.
  • Structure and Language measures the ability to recognize language that is appropriate for standard written English.
  • Reading Comprehension measures the ability to understand non-technical reading matter
There is no scheduled break during the paper-based test.
