What is the TOEFL?

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) evaluates the English proficiency of individuals whose native language is not English. Most people who take the TOEFL
test are planning to study at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. TOEFL is also used by institutions in other countries where English is the language of instruction. In addition, many government agencies, scholarship programs, and licensing/certification agencies use TOEFL scores to evaluate English proficiency. TOEFL is administered under the direction of Educational Testing Service.

The test includes four sections. It takes between three and one-half and four hours to complete everything.

Section 1 - Listening

Each section of the test has a time limit. The test center supervisor will tell you when to start and stop each section. The number of test questions may vary from one test administration to another, but there will never be fewer than 140 questions.
