What is TOEFL?

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is an international exam in English as a foreign language. TOEFL is prepared by Educational Testing Service (ETS), Princeton University, New Jersey, USA.

The main purpose of TOEFL is to assess the level of training of those for whom English is not their native language. The TOEFL certificate is a necessary document when enrolling in foreign universities to study under the Academic Mobility program, when obtaining the right to an internship in English or for entering a job that requires knowledge of English. Some scientific and professional certification programs also require applicants to pass the TOEFL. The TOEFL certificate is valid for two years.
