Test preparation

iBT TOEFL (Internet-based TOEFL) was first introduced in the United States in September 2005 in an attempt to better evaluate the English language skills (reading, listening, speaking, and writing) necessary for success in an academic environment. As a result, the iBT TOEFL includes several new features that give the TOEFL added accuracy in determining a language learner's skill level, such as tasks incorporating spoken expression, additional writing tasks, as well as tasks that incorporate listening and reading comprehension, and spoken responses.

While many of these tasks may seem intimidating to test takers familiar with more traditional methods of exam preparation and administration, it is necessary to remember that all the tasks required by the iBT TOEFL are those required for success in English-speaking university environments. These tasks are focused entirely on measuring real-life communication skills. With sufficient preparation, the iBT is no more complicated or challenging than the CBT or PBT TOEFL.

The iBT TOEFL is currently being introduced gradually across the globe. As soon as the start date for the iBT TOEFL in your area has passed, you will not be able to take the CBT or PBT (paper-based) TOEFL. See the official ETS TOEFL website (www.toefl.org) for more information on the test available in your area.
