The entire exam takes about four hours, and you’ll receive a score from 0-30 for each individual section and a total score of 0-120 for the entire test.
TOEFL Reading Section
The reading portion of the TOEFL test is designed to gauge how well you read and understand materials common an academic setting. What is the reading test like? After reading 3-4 passages from university-level textbooks, you will answer 10 questions about each segment with a time limit for completion.
Listening Section of the TOEFL Exam
Understanding conversations and lectures is the main the objective of the listening portion of the TOEFL. You will be tested on basic comprehension but also on the speaker’s attitude and degree of certainty. This part of the test is broken up into two sections: 2-3 conversations and 3-4 lectures. You will answer questions on the content of each with a time limit for completion.
Writing Section of the TOEFL
The writing section of the TOEFL measures your level of ability when writing academic material. There are two tasks for the written portion of the exam. For the first, you’ll be asked to listen to a lecture or read a text. After listening or reading, you’ll answer a question. The second task is an opinion essay, where you compose your own response to a question.
