The TOEFL Test measure how well you can use English in an academic setting. The exam consists of 4 core competencies:
Reading: The reading section consists of 3-5 long passages followed by questions about those passages. Generally these cover academic topics and are consistent with the kind of material you would find in an undergraduate university textbook. Students answer questions about main ideas, details, inferences, sentence restatements, sentence insertion, vocabulary, function and overall ideas.
Listening: The listening section consists of six long passages and questions about these passages. There are two student conversations and four academic lectures or discussions.
Speaking: Consists of six tasks, two independent tasks and four integrated tasks. In the two independent tasks, you answer opinion questions on some aspect of academic life. For the two integrated reading, listening, and speaking tasks, students must read a passage, listen to a passage, and speak about how the ideas in the two passages are related. In two integrated listening and speaking tasks, students must listen to long passages and then summarize and offer opinions on the information in the passages. Test takers are expected to convey information, explain ideas, and defend opinions clearly, coherently, and accurately.
Writing: The writing section consists of two tasks, one integrated task and one independent task. In the integrated task, students must read an academic passage, listen to an academic passage, and write about how the ideas in the two passages are related. In the independent task, students must write a personal essay.
