What’s New about the TOEFL iBT?

With the advent of the new TOEFL iBT® (Internet-based TOEFL) and its online delivery, a new and better era of language skill assessment has been introduced. The new test includes voice-recording technology that more effectively measures your ability to both understand and to speak English. It is a better evaluation tool for assessing your overall communication skills in the English language.

So, what’s new? Well, almost everything!

It takes longer to complete
The computer and paper-based versions took about 3.5 hours. The TOEFL iBT is about 4 hours long. You will be required to complete all of the sections in one day, so you will not have to travel to the test center twice.

You can take notes
You can do this throughout the test and it will come in handy with the new format.

The questions are different
Because effective communication includes many skills, the TOEFL iBT introduces the concept of “integrated questions” which combine multiple language skills. You will be asked to:

  • Read, listen, and then speak in response to a question
  • Listen and then speak in response to a question
  • Read, listen, and then write in response to a question

It’s more like the real thing
The listening sections include longer, more authentic conversations and lectures instead of shorter dialogues. You can take notes while listening. Test questions will ask you to determine things。
