     Home Page   TOEFL - Test of English as a Foreign Language
 
The Test of English as  Foreign language (TOEFL) internet- based test was devised to reflect as accurately as possible your ability to communicate effectively in academic environments such as  colleges or universities. The TOEFL tests your integrated reading, listening, speaking and writing skills not just separately, but also by including integrated skills activities that reflect real-world communication. For example, when somebody says something to you, you listen and then respond,
so you are using more than one skill at the same time. In the TOEFL test, you may be required to listen to a passage,  then read a passage, and finally react to what you have understood by speaking into the microphone or writing about it. The TOEFL exam is 4.5 hours long, and consists of Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing (in that order), with a 10-minute break.
