Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL®)

The TOEFL® test is a registered trademark of Educational Testing Service (ETS) and is administered worldwide. The TOEFL® test measures your ability to communicate in English in colleges and universities. The four-hour test consists of four sections, each measuring one of the basic language skills and all tasks focus 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.

Task Description Time
READING 3-5 passages 60-100 minutes
LISTENING 6-9 passages 60-90 minutes
BREAK 10 minutes
SPEAKING 6 tasks and 6 questions 20 minutes
WRITING 2 tasks and 2 questions 55 minutes

It should be noted that one of the sections of the test will include extra, uncounted material. Educational Testing Service includes extra material in order to pilot test questions for future test forms. When test-takers are given a longer section, they should give equal effort to all of the questions because they do not know which question will count and which will be considered extra. For example, if there are four reading passages instead of three, then three of those passages will count and one of the passages will not be counted. Any of the four passages could be the uncounted one.

Registration and payment can be completed online at http://www.ets.org/toefl/ibt/about (choose Society of Engineers UAE as your examination venue).
