What is TOEFL and How to prepare?

The TOEFL test scores are accepted by more than 6,000 institutions and agencies in 110 countries to
select students with the English skills needed to succeed. It measures the ability of nonnative speakers of
English to use and understand English as it is spoken, written, and heard in college and university
settings.

Based on the center you select,  TOEFL test can be Internet-based Test iBT or paper based test










The TOEFL iBT has a new Speaking section, which includes independent and integrated tasks. There is
no longer a Structure section. Grammar is tested on questions and tasks in each section. Lectures and
conversations in the Listening section are longer, but note-taking is allowed. In fact, note-taking is allowed
throughout the entire test. The speech in the listening material sounds more natural, and one lecture may
use a British or Australian accent. Also, there are new questions that measure understanding of a
speaker's attitude, degree of certainty, and purpose. The Reading section has new questions that ask
test takers to categorize information and fill in a chart or complete a summary.
