The TOEFL is the product of the Educational Testing Service (ETS). TOEFL, pronounced “toe-full”, evaluates the potential success of an individual to use and understand standard American English at a college level.
TOEFL is required for non-native applicants at many US and other English-speaking colleges and universities. It is a standardized test of English for academic purposes, and is commonly used in university programs as a benchmark of proficiency in English for entrance requirements.
The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is widely used by colleges and universities, scholarship agencies, and professional licensing organizations to assess English language proficiency.
Four skills are tested in TOEFL: Listening, Structure, Reading, and Writing.
