About the TOEFL iBT

Take the TOEFL test. Go anywhere.

If you are planning to study abroad, the TOEFL test is the one test that can take you anywhere.
In fact, more institutions accept TOEFL test scores than any other test scores in the world more than 7,000 colleges, universities and licensing agencies in more than 130 countries, to be exact.
And, with more than 4,500 test centers worldwide, taking the test is convenient and easy. 

Demonstrate your English-language skills.

The TOEFL iBT measures how well you read, listen, speak and write in English and use these skills together in the university classroom. For example, you might read a passage or listen to a lecture, and then write or speak about what you learned.
