The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is one of the major English language proficiency tests for non-native speakers. The Educational Testing Service (ETS), a private non-profit organization, administers this test.
Non-native speakers who want to enroll in an English-speaking university need to take a recognized English language test in order to secure admission. The score of TOEFL is accepted by more than 11,000 universities and other educational institutions across 190 countries and territories. TOEFL scores are valid for up to two years, and ETS sends the score report independently to the educational institutions.
TOEFL Internet-based test (iBT) was introduced in 2005 and replaced the former computer-based and paper-based tests. However, in some select areas, the paper-based test is still used. The test assesses four English skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

What's Included in TOEFL?
How Hard is TOEFL
TOEFL can be tricky and require the right amount of preparation. If you are well-prepared and have strong English language skills, it shouldn’t be difficult to secure a good score on the exam. One of the first steps of the preparation could be expanding your vocabulary. Every section of the test needs a strong English vocabulary.
The test assesses all the language skills that you need to successfully participate in the academic program. Thus, you have to work on your reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. You have to come up with concise and detailed answers to broad and open-ended questions, which can be difficult for a non-native speaker without proper training and practice.
Sometimes students also face a time crunch mainly because they are not exposed to the type of language required for TOEFL. Here comes the role of a training program particularly focused on developing such skills. Experienced teachers and well-designed courses can make the whole exercise lot easier for the test-takers. A regular English score may not be able to do the trick; you need a special course to do well on the test.
Reality of Learning a New Language
Learning for TOEFL is not the same as learning to speak English. TOEFL requires special skills and training. It requires you to develop a specific type of language skill that is needed in academia. The test doesn’t merely assess your English-speaking proficiency. Many native Americans and other native English speakers would do poorly in this exam simply because they do not have the specific skill. Similarly, all who do fairly well in the exam are not good English speakers.
You will need to read and comprehend vocabulary-heavy academic texts, and your understanding of vocabulary will be assessed. The other sections may also seem difficult if you are unfamiliar with complex academic vocabulary.
It also assesses how well you can analyze and articulate complex thoughts and experiences in English. It is way different than speaking day-to-day English. It requires special skills and training. However, as the test-takers are already exposed to academic environments, picking up the skills shouldn’t be difficult for them with proper guidance and training.
