Who doesn't dream of studying abroad, right? With the strengthening of the globalization of the economy and markets, more and more young people understand the importance of having an international experience.
To help you on this journey, today's post is about the TOEFL test and why it is so important when planning to study abroad. Let´s go?!
After all, what is TOEFL?
TOEFL is the acronym for Test of English as a Foreign Language. In other words, as its name reveals, it is an English proficiency exam for foreigners.
The TOEFL certifies whether a person can:
- Express yourself in the language;
- Understand it in its entirety.
In other words, the TOEFL is a standardized test built with minimum requirements to verify that a student is able to pursue higher education in English.
In addition, the TOEFL is divided into 5 (five) different modalities:
- TOEFL Primary;
- TOEFL Junior;
- TOEFL IBT;
- TOEFL PBT;
- TOEFL ITP.
In today's post we will not go into more depth on these modalities, but follow our blog because in the coming weeks we will focus on this topic.
