What is TOEFL

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL /ˈtoʊfəl/ TOH-fəl) is a standardized test to measure the English language ability of non-native speakers wishing to enroll in English-speaking universities. The test is accepted by more than 11,000 universities and other institutions in over 190 countries and territories. TOEFL is one of the two major English-language tests in the world, the other being the IELTS.


Test Your Way

Feeling safe and comfortable during testing is important and contributes to your success. That's why the TOEFL iBT® test is offered 3 different ways, so you can choose the testing option that best suits your needs and preferences:

  • TOEFL iBT test: Test on a computer at a test center.
  • TOEFL iBT® Home Edition: Test on a computer at home.
  • TOEFL iBT® Paper Edition: Test in 2 sessions — Reading, Listening, and Writing on paper at a test center, and Speaking on a computer at home.

It's your test — you choose where and how to take it.

TOEFL iBT® Test (at a Test Center)

Authorized TOEFL iBT test centers are open in locations around the world. Find available test centers and dates. Openings can vary by location and may depend on local conditions and government requirements that are outside of ETS's control.

Be sure to review What to Expect on Test Day to learn about the procedures you must follow and the enhanced safety procedures in place. You can also check with your local test center for a complete list of health and safety procedures they've implemented.

TOEFL iBT Home Edition

The TOEFL iBT Home Edition is the same TOEFL iBT test you would take at a test center, just taken from the privacy of your own home and monitored online by a human proctor. It is trusted and accepted by universities worldwide.

Be sure you review and meet the At Home Testing Environment and Equipment requirements before you register for the Home Edition.

Learn about what you can expect on test day when taking the TOEFL iBT Home Edition.

TOEFL iBT Paper Edition

You can take the TOEFL iBT test on paper in select countries if you prefer that testing format.

The Paper Edition is the same 4-skills TOEFL iBT test, just delivered on paper and given in 2 testing sessions.

  • The Reading, Listening, and Writing sections are taken on paper at a test center.
  • The Speaking section is taken at home on your computer monitored online by a human proctor, within 3 days after the paper sections.

The Paper Edition is currently available in Colombia, India, Mexico and the United States, with testing starting by the end of 2021. Additional countries will be added in the future.

Because the Speaking section is administered at home, make sure you meet the necessary Environment and Equipment requirements before you register.

Also, be sure to review On Test Day information — both for at home testing and test center testing — to learn about the policies and procedures you must follow.
