The TOEFL® Test Gives You an Advantage: Most Widely Accepted, Most Popular and Most Convenient Choice
The TOEFL test is the most widely respected English-language test in the world, recognized by more than 10,000 colleges, universities and agencies in more than 130 countries, including Australia, Canada, the U.K. and the United States. Wherever you want to study, the TOEFL test can help you get there.
Which TOEFL Test Should I Take?
The TOEFL test is available in 2 formats — one that is delivered via the internet, and one that is a paper test. 98 percent of TOEFL test takers worldwide take the TOEFL iBT® test, delivered via the internet, and access continues to expand. The TOEFL iBT test is desired by universities because it measures all 4 communication skills — reading, listening, speaking, and writing.
For those test takers who don’t have access to the TOEFL iBT test, there is the revised TOEFL® Paper-delivered Test. The revised TOEFL Paper-delivered Test is only offered in locations where testing via the internet is not available. The new paper test was designed to align better with the TOEFL iBT test than the original TOEFL PBT test, which was discontinued as of July 2017. The revised paper test requires test takers to combine their communication skills — for example, listening to a lecture, reading a passage, and then writing a response. Integrating skills gives a more accurate indication of a test taker’s ability to communicate in English. There is no Speaking section because it is a paper test.
