What is TOEFL and who's the test for

The internet-based TOEFL (iBT) test assesses the  ability to use and understand academic English and the ability to combine the four skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) for academic purposes. 
At the CLA the test is delivered on the computer.

The TOEFL iBT is addressed to:
- students who intend to study at a foreign university
- students who must support admission or complete an English language learning program
- candidates for scholarships and certifications
- English language students who want to certify their progress
- students and workers who intend to apply for a residence permit.

Every year, the TOEFL is taken worldwide by about one million people of all ages and has already had more than 25 million candidates. For more info click HERE

The TOEFL iBT Home Edition

In response to the needs expressed by institutions and test takers, the TOEFL iBT® Home Edition will become a continuing part of the TOEFL® portfolio. Candidates now have the permanent option to test at either a test center or at home.
The TOEFL iBT Home Edition  is the real TOEFL iBT test. It is not an indicator, approximation or a practice test.It has the same features of the TOEFL iBT test taken at a test center with: the same content and format, the same on-screen experience, the same features (like MyBest® scores) and instant scoring of Reading and Listening sections, the same price and payment options, the same scoring and score reports.
The  TOEFL iBT test uses 100% academic English; the same language used at university. And, with its high-quality test design and centralized scoring by trained raters, it is also 100% fair and unbiased, which gives your students — and admissions officers — confidence in their scores.
