TOEFL is the test that can take you anywhere, if you are planning to study abroad. Students from non-English speaking countries at the 11th-grade level or above should take TOEFL to provide confirmation of their English language proficiency, before beginning academic work in an English speaking country. The TOEFL test is offered in 180 countries around the world. TOEFL measures your reading, listening, speaking and writing skills in English, and your ability to use and understand standard American English in a university classroom.
