TOEFL - the Test of English as a Foreign Language

One of the most commonly used tests is TOEFL - the Test of English as a Foreign Language. The Test of English as a Foreign Language is used to evaluate the English proficiency of people whose native language is not English. This will ensure that you are able to satisfy the demands of university-level work in English.

Beginning in September 2005, the TOEFL included a test of speaking in addition to sections on reading, writing and listening.

TOEFL does provide some noninteractive sample questions.

To get a better understanding of the test you will need to take the interactive practice questions and receive feedback about your English skills by becoming a member of the TOEFL Practice Online Community website. To become a member submit your email address and complete the free registration procedure.

Once you have become a member, you will be able to login and use the following features.

On the TOEFL home page, there is an Online Registration for the TOEFL Test that will also tell you the locations of the local computer-based test centres.
