About TOEFL

The TOEFL iBT test is one leading step in your journey to study in an English Speaking Country. TOEFL stands for the Test of English as a Foreign Language, iBT stands for the Internet-Based Test. This test is a benchmark for English Language proficiency, and is administered by ETS (www.ets.org).

TOEFL is an exam required by most US and Canadian Universities to prove proficiency in English (especially for students from countries where English is not a native language). The exam evaluates your skill in combining the four pillars of language: Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing to perform academic tasks.

Regardless of which test you take (SAT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT etc.), all TOEFL scores remain valid for 2 years after your test date. More than million people from all over the world have taken the TOEFL test to demonstrate their English-language proficiency. TOEFL is offered more than 50 times a year, mostly over the weekend (Friday, Saturday & Sunday). It is important to remember that you cannot re-attempt the test in a 12 day period. As such, you can attempt the test any number of times.
