Frequently Asked Questions

The TOEFL iBT® test is accepted and preferred by institutions worldwide, especially in the USA. 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 on computer.

  • The TOEFL iBT® test has 4 sections: Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing
  • The total test takes about 3 hours to complete
  • What is in the Reading Section?

    The TOEFL Reading section is designed to assess how well you can read and understand the kind of materials used in an academic environment. It includes 3 or 4 reading passages, each approximately 700 words long, with 10 questions per passage. You have 54 to 72 minutes to answer all the questions in the section. Reading passages are excerpts from university-level textbooks that would be used in introductions to a discipline or topic.

  • What is in the Listening Section? The TOEFL Listening section is designed to measure your ability to understand conversations and lectures in English. It includes listening for:
  • basic comprehension
  • pragmatic understanding (speaker's attitude and degree of certainty) and connecting and synthesizing information. There are 2 types of listening items in the Speaking section — lectures and conversations. Both use campus-based language.
  • What is in the Speaking Section?

    The TOEFL Speaking section is designed to measure your ability to speak English effectively in academic settings. It is composed of 4:

    • Question 1 is called an "independent speaking task" because it requires you to draw entirely on your own ideas, opinions and experiences when you respond.
    • Questions 2–4 are called "integrated speaking tasks" because they require you to combine your English-language skills — listening and speaking, or listening, reading and speaking.

    You'll get 15–30 seconds of preparation time before each response, and your response will be 45 or 60 seconds long.

    To respond, you'll speak into the microphone on your headset. Your responses are recorded and sent to ETS, where they will be scored by a combination of AI scoring and certified human raters.

  • What is in the Writing Section?

    The TOEFL Writing section is designed to measure your ability to write in English in an academic setting, and you're expected to be able to present your ideas in a clear, well-organized manner.

    There are 2 writing tasks.

    • Integrated writing task (20 minutes) — read a short passage and listen to a short lecture, then write in response to what you read and listened to.
    • Independent writing task (30 minutes) — write an essay based on personal experience or opinion in response to a writing topic.

    You'll type your responses on a computer keyboard. Responses are sent to ETS, where they are scored by a combination of AI scoring and certified human raters.

    You'll have 50 minutes to complete the Writing section.

Each section of the test has a score range of 0–30, and each range is broken down into 4 or 5 proficiency levels.     

Reading        

Advanced (24–30)

High-Intermediate (18–23)

Low-Intermediate (4–17)

In order to get a high score on TOEFL, of course, you need to be fluent in English, but, in addition, you are to develop specific skills that you will need on TOEFL.

For example, if you complete TOEFL Reading tasks as if you were just reading in real life, without knowing special techniques for taking TOEFL, you simply will not have enough time to answer all the questions.

All tasks on the exam are quite specific and just good knowledge of English will not be enough - you need to be prepared for the TOEFL format.
