TOEFL is the Test of English as a Foreign Language, a test that our tutors at Ivy Coach help students around the world interested in applying to U.S. universities prepare for. Our TOEFL prep is for students who attend school in another country in which instruction at that school is in a non-English language. The TOEFL is a four-hour exam measuring reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills.
The reading section of the TOEFL exam consists of 36-56 questions over the span of 60-80 minutes. Students read three or four questions from academic texts and then answer questions regarding these texts. The listening section of the TOEFL consists of 34-51 questions over the span of 60-90 minutes. In this section, students listen to conversations, classroom discussions, and lectures. They then answer questions related to what they heard.
The speaking section of the TOEFL consists of 6 tasks over 20 minutes. In this section, students “express an opinion on a familiar topic l speak based on reading and listening skills,” as referenced by ETS. The writing section of the TOEFL consists of 2 tasks over the span of 50 minutes. Students have to support an opinion through writing and formulate essay responses based on reading and listening tasks.
