Understanding TOEFL

The Purpose of the TOEFL Exam

The TOEFL exam evaluates an individual's ability to understand and use English in an academic environment. It measures their skills in reading, listening, speaking, and writing, ensuring they possess the necessary language proficiency for higher education abroad or employment opportunities.

Paper-based Test (PBT)

TOEFL PBT is available in areas where the internet-based version is not accessible.
