How does TOEFL Works?

TOEFL is divided into four sections 

TOEFL is divided into four sections so let’s take a closer look.

Reading Section

Incorporate a habit of reading into your daily routine

The reading section is used to determine how well you can read and comprehend materials in an academic setting. It usually consists of three to four reading passages, each with an average word count of 700 words and ten questions. The reading passages are taken from university-level textbooks that cover a wide range of topics at a basic level.

Listening Section

Practice your listening skills 

Your ability to understand English conversations and lectures is tested in the listening section. Basic comprehension, pragmatic understanding, connecting, and synthesizing information are all part of this process.

The listening section usually includes native English speakers from North America, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, or Australia to reflect better the variety of accents you might encounter while studying abroad.

There are two types of listening items for the speaking section: lectures and conversation, both of which are campus-based languages.

Speaking Section

Watch and practice your speaking skills with Youtube

The speaking section evaluates your ability to communicate in English in academic settings effectively. It consists of four tasks modeled after real-life situations that you might encounter in and out of the classroom.

One question usually focuses on an independent speaking task that requires you to respond entirely based on your ideas, opinions, and experiences. The other questions are referred to as integrated speaking tasks because they require you to use both your listening and speaking skills and your listening, reading, and speaking skills.

Writing Section 

Writing parameters helps you express your ideas in a clear and concise manner

The Writing section assesses your ability to write in English in an academic setting, and you will be graded on how well you organize and present your ideas.

Integrated and independent writing tasks are the most common types of writing tasks. You must read a short passage and listen to a short lecture before writing in response to what you read and heard in the integrated writing task. In an independent writing task, you must write an essay based on personal experience or opinion in response to a writing topic.

Your TOEFL response is scored by a combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and certified human raters to ensure fairness and quality.
