About the TOEFL test:

The TOEFL test (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is administered on fixed dates in a network of secured internet-based test centers. It measures all four language skills that are important for effective communication: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Some questions require test takers to combine more than one skill: to succeed academically in English-speaking colleges and universities, students need to be able to combine their language skills in the classroom. Integrated questions, or tasks in the tests will help learners build the skills and confidence needed to communicate effectively in the academic environments they plan to enter. The integrated tasks will ask test takers 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

Starting August 1, 2019 an improved TOEFL iBT test has been launched with a shorter test, enhanced score reporting and easier registration

Information for Hungarian Test Takers

A vizsga számítógépen történik, egynyelvű, és fordítási részt nem tartalmaz. A vizsga során semmilyen segédeszköz nem használható. A vizsga díja Magyarországon 220 USD, mely összeg az online jelentkezés során kártyás vásárlásként kerül levonásra.Online jelentkezés a vizsgára:www.ets.org/toefl/ibt/registerAz összesen 3 – 3,5 órás, TOEFL iBT teszt 4 részből áll:

  • Reading (olvasott szöveg értelmezése)
  • Listening (hallás utáni megértés)
  • Speaking (olvasott/hallott szöveggel kapcsolatos kérdésre adott szóbeli válasz)
  • Writing (fogalmazás)

Az eredményt 0-120 pontig terjedő skálán értékeli a rendszer. A teszt eredménye a vizsgát követő 6. naptól megtekinthető és a 8. naptól PDF-ben letölthető az internetes regisztráció során létrehozott ‘online profile’-ban. Magyarországon hivatalos vizsgabizonyítványként elfogadott nyomtatott teszteredményt (printed score report) csak akkor kap a vizsgázó, ha ilyen irányú igényét előzetesen, a regisztráció során jelzi. Amennyiben a vizsgázó a regisztráció során rendelt hivatalos, nyomtatott vizsgabizonyítványt, akkor az körülbelül 4-5 hét múlva érkezik meg az Egyesült Államokból a vizsgázó címére. Amennyiben a vizsgázó nem érte el a megkövetelt pontszámot, ismételt regisztráció és vizsgadíj befizetés esetén lehetősége van a vizsga újbóli letételére a következő héten.

A teszt eredménye 2 évig érvényes. A TOEFL iBT vizsga az elért pontszámtól függően (47-65 pont: B1 alapfok / 66-82 pont: B2 középfok / 83-120 pont: C1 felsőfok) kiegészítő vizsga nélkül egynyelvű C-nek; kiegészítő írásbeli vizsgával kétnyelvű C-nek felel meg. Amennyiben vizsgáját honosítani szeretné, érdemes egy vizsgabizonyítványt rendelnie a 9032 – Fulbright Hungary kódszámra is. A saját névre szóló eredmény nem minden esetben minősül hivatalos vizsgabizonyítványnak. A honosítás-sal kapcsolatban a Nyelvvizsgáztatási Akkreditációs Központ ad bővebb felvilágosítást.
