What is TOEFL?

The higher-standard 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.  It is designed to help you do well by preparing you to express yourself confidently in English in the university environment.

When you take the TOEFL® test, the only thing that counts is your English-language ability, not where you test or who scores your test. You will speak into a microphone without a rater sitting in front of you. Unlike tests scored by local examiners, where face-to-face interviews can create biases about test takers’ accents and appearance, the TOEFL is majorly concerned with english and is centred using an unbiased system that combines AI technology with multiple test raters who do not know the test takers’ identities.

What is the pattern for test ?

The TOEFL iBT is a four-hour, computerized test with four sections: Reading, Listening,Speaking, and Writing. You’ll use one main skill for each section (so on Reading you’ll read passages and on Listening you’ll listen to audio clips), with some questions or tasks requiring the use of multiple skills. Score requirements are set by individual colleges and universities.

All sections are timed. You’ll always have 20 minutes on Speaking and 50 minutes on Writing.

However, the Reading and Listening sections vary in length due to unscored, experimental questions. Reading ranges from 60 to 80 minutes long, while Listening ranges from 60 to 90 minutes long. There will be no indication telling you which questions are experimental and which ones aren’t, so don’t spend too much time worrying about this – just try your best on all questions!

Finally, you’ll have one 10-minute break in the middle of the test, between the Listening and Speaking sections. This break is mandatory, meaning you must take it. You may take other breaks during the test, but you will not be able to pause the timer for these.
