TOEFL - Test of English as a Foreign Language

The 'Test of English as a Foreign Language' is a test used to measure whether candidates have the appropriate language skills to undertake University / College study conducted in English.

It is an International test developed by ETS Educational Testing Service in Princeton University, USA.

The paper-based TOEFL (PBT) is divided into four sections, each one measuring the ability of candidates in reading, listening, structure and written expression, and writing in English. The internet based TOEFL (iBT) also tests a candidate's spoken English.

All tasks in the test focus on language used in an Academic, Higher-Education environment.

TOEFL is currently offered in four locations in Iraq, i.e. Baghdad, Erbil, Mosul and Sulaimani.

(The latter is an internet-based test; the first three locations are paper-based tests)
