Description of TOEFL


The test is used to measure the English proficiency of individuals whose native language is not English.

Many universities use TOEFL scores to fulfill the foreign language requirement for doctoral candidates whose first language is not English.

The TOEFL test is given at centers around the world twelve times a year, or once each month. Currently, over 1275 testing centers in 180 countries are authorized to administer this exam.
