As an international student or professional pursuing various academic and development opportunities abroad, providing a proof of English Language Proficiency is a crucial part of such a process. TOEFL is a recurrent topic that, as non-native English speakers, we frequently hear. Back to when I applied for the Fulbright program, I had to go through preparing and sitting for one of the largely used standardized tests used to assess individuals’ English Language Proficiency which is the TOEFL iBT test!
“TOEFL iBT test, simply put!” covers all that international students need to initially know about the test. If you have never taken the TOEFL iBT test before and are struggling with the large amounts of information thrown at you through articles and videos, this is a good start for you to know everything you need to start your journey of preparing and sitting for the test. If you have taken the test before but you are still struggling to get a high score, you should consider the preparation techniques and strategies we share in this episode. You will also hear practical advice from scholars who sat for the test and received a high score when they were applying for schools and scholarships abroad.
