TOEFL iBT - what is it?

TOEFL iBT is an English language proficiency test developed and administered by ETS (Educational Testing Service).

It is an internet-based test.

There is no passing or failing score. The minimum score required depends on the purpose for which you take the test.

The test measures the English language skills important for effective communication in an academic setting.

It consists of four sections: reading, listening, speaking and writing. The entire test takes 4 hours and all sections are included.

 The TOEFL iBT requires test takers to combine skills just as they would have to in a real academic setting e.g.:

  • read, listen and then speak in response to a question
  • listen and then speak in reponse to a question
  • read, listen, and then write in response to a question
