The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) measures the ability of non-native speakers of English to use and understand North American English as it is spoken, written and heard in college and university settings. Most people who take the TOEFL test are planning to study at colleges and universities where instruction is in English. In addition, many government agencies, scholarship programs, and licensing/certification agencies use TOEFL scores to evaluate English proficiency.
You can do the test on paper or on a computer, depending where you live.The test comes in two formats:
computer-based test (iBT)
paper-based test (PBT)
The iBT is available in most countries. If it is available at your local center then you will have to do it, if not you will do the PBT.
