T.O.E.F.L Preparation Course
The Test of English as a Foreign Language (or TOEFL, pronounced "toe-full") evaluates the potential success of an individual to use and understand standard American English at a college level. It is required for non-native applicants at many US and other English-speaking colleges and universities. The TOEFL is the product of the Educational Testing Service (ETS), which is contracted by the private, non-profit firm, the College Board to administer the test in institutions in the US; they also produce the SAT. In addition, many government, licensing and certification agencies and exchange scholarship programs use TOEFL scores to evaluate the English proficiency.
The test consists of four sections:
- Section I: Listening Comprehension
- Section II: Structure and Written Expression
- Section III: Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary
- Section IV: Essay Writing
