The appropriate TOEFL score is now the standard requirement for entry to a North American universities. Additionally, institutions such as government agencies, licensing bodies, businesses, or scholarship programs may require this test.
This course provides complete and careful preparation for all aspects of the academic module and includes:
Since its introduction in late 2005, the Internet-Based test (IBT) has progressively replaced both the computer-based (CBT) and paper-based(PBT) tests. The iBT has been introduced in phases, with the US, Canada, France, Germany and Italy in 2005 and the rest of the world in 2006, with test centers added regularly.
Although the demand for test seats was very high, and candidates had to wait for months, it is now possible to take the test within one to four weeks in most countries. The four-hour test consists of four sections, each measuring mainly one of the basic language skills (although some tasks may require multiple skills) focusing on language used in an academic, higher-education environment. Note-taking is allowed during the iBT. The test cannot be taken more than once a week.
The TOEFL reading comprehension section consists of 35 long passages and questions about the passages. The passages are on academic topics; they are the kind of material that might be found in an undergraduate university textbook. Students answer questions about main ideas, details, inferences, sentence restatements, sentence insertion, vocabulary, function and overall ideas. New types of questions in the iBT require paraphrasing, filling out tables, or completing summaries. Generally prior knowledge of the subject under discussion is not necessary to come to the correct answer, though a priori knowledge may help.
It consists of six long passages and questions about the passages. The passages consist of two student conversations and four academic lectures or discussions. The questions ask the students to determine main ideas, details, function, stance, inferences, and overall organization.
It consists of six tasks, two independent tasks and four integrated tasks. In the two independent tasks, students must answer opinion questions about some aspect of academic life. In two integrated reading, listening, and speaking tasks, students must read a passage, listen to a passage, and speak about how the ideas in the two passages are related. In two integrated listening and speaking tasks, students must listen to long passages and then summarize and offer opinions on the information in the passages. Test takers are expected to convey information, explain ideas, and defend opinions clearly, coherently, and accurately.
The Writing Section consists of two tasks, one integrated task and one independent task. In the integrated task, students must read an academic passage, listen to an academic passage, and write about how the ideas in the two passages are related. In the independent task, students must write a personal essay.
You will be asked to read 3 passages and given 39 questions. That thirteen questions per passage but be lucky! You will have sixty minutes to complete the reading task.
You will be given fifty minutes to listen to 6 passages and be asked 34 questions.
6 tasks and 6 questions lasting 20 minutes.
Two tasks and 2 questions, lasting 55 minutes.
It should be noted that at least one of the sections of the test will include extra, uncounted material. Educational Testing Service includes extra material to try out material for future tests. Anyone taking the tests who is given a longer section must work hard on all of it because they won't know which material counts and which material is test trial material.
For example, if there are four reading passages instead of three, three of the passages will count and one of the passages will not be counted. The uncounted passage could be any of those passages.
In areas where the IBT and CBT are not available, a paper-based test (PBT) is given. Because test takers cannot register at the testing center on the test date, they must register in advance using the registration form provided in the Supplemental Paper TOEFL Bulletin. They should register in advance of the given deadlines to ensure a place because the test centers have limited seating and may fill up early. Tests are administered only several times each year.
The PBT tests essentially the same skills as the CBT, albeit with some differences, noticeably the number of questions (which is higher in the PBT) and the score scales. The test lasts 4 hours more or less. Students can take the test as many times as they wish. However, colleges and universities usually consider only the most recent score.
The listening consists of three parts:
This part has 15 exercises of completing sentences correctly and 25 exercises of identifying errors.
It has 50 questions about the reading passages.
One essay with 250-300 words in average.
