About the TOEFL iBT Test

The TOEFL iBT® test is accepted and preferred by institutions worldwide, so you will stand out to admissions officers. It measures academic English skills the way they’re actually used in the classroom, so universities know you're ready to succeed. The test has 4 sections — Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing — and you'll perform tasks that combine these 4 skills.
