TOEFL Test: How To Register And Write In Ghana

TOEFL stands for Test Of English as a Foreign Language. More than 11,000 institutions around the globe take part in the TOEFL test. It was established in 1965 by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), a private nonprofit organization that conducts educational research emphasizing testing.

ETS initially developed the test through a collaboration of more than 30 public and private institutions to assess the English proficiency of incoming students for whom English was a second language.

According to the Educational Testing Service (ETS), more than 35 million people have taken the TOEFL. It started as a paper-based test, and in 1998, it became computer-based. The ETS introduced the internet-based test in 2005, which is known as the TOEFL iBT.

The TOEFL iBT measures your ability to use and understand English at the University level. Additionally, it evaluates how well you combine your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills to perform academic tasks. The TOEFL has four parts: reading, listening, speaking, and writing.
