The TOEFL® Internet-based test emphasizes integrated skills and measures all four language skills, including speaking. The content on the test is authentic, and the language is consistent with that used in everyday, real academic settings.

The test has four sections

* Reading measures the ability to understand academic reading matter.

* Listening measures the ability to understand English as it is used in colleges and universities.

* Speaking measures the ability to speak English.

* Writing measures the ability to write in a way that is appropriate for college and university course work.

Test content is based on a “corpus,” or database, of spoken and written language that currently contains more than 2.7 million words, collected from educational institutions throughout the United States.

The spoken language in the database was collected from

* lectures and interactive classes
* labs
* office hours
* study groups
* everyday service interactions (for example, at the bookstore or registrar's office).

The written language was collected from sources, such as textbooks and course materials.

Listening and reading texts in the test conform to the characteristics of the language in the database
