TOEFL or Test of English as a Foreign Language is a test used to measure the English skill for non-native speakers who wish to pursue their education in English speaking universities or schools. The TOEFL exam rivals another major English test, known as the IELTS.
TOEFL exams are internet based tests (iBT), although is some parts paper-based testing is also used. The TOEFL exam spans across a period of 4 hours and measure English skills in the areas listed as follows;
This section of the test assesses the students reading skills via giving students 3 to 5 passages, approximately 700 words in length on topics which would usually be found textbooks, novels or other academic literature. Students will be required to understand the material and answer questions based on the passages. In the iBT based version of the test students will be required to summarize the passages and/or fill out tables.
This section assesses a student’s listening capabilities; it consists of 6 passages which are usually between 3 to 5 minutes in length. The passages are usually focused on conversations , discussions and academic lectures. Each passage is heard only once and test-takers may make notes while listening to the student. The questions asked by the examiners measure the ability to understand and analyze the conversation using questions which ask about important details, main ideas and more based on the passage the student has just listened to.
This section has six tasks split into independent and integrated. The independent tasks revolved around asking opinions and questions of topics familiar to the student. Students are evaluated on their ability to speak and convey these ideas clearly and with proper diction. Integrated tasks are a little different; students read short passages and/or listen to lectures and answer questions based on the lectures. Test-takers are allowed to take notes so they can speak out their ideas clearly and with structure.
Again, the writing section is split into integrated and independent writing tasks. It tests the ability of a student to write in an academic setting. Integrated tasks require students to read a passage, listen to a speaker discuss it and then write a summary on the topic. Independent tasks require the test-taker to write an essay regarding a topic of their choice.

I really love studying at BSM because there are many students who come from many different nationalities and it is a multicultural environment; everyone is able to communicate and get along well. The tutor is excellent at adapting the curriculum to suit the students, which prepares us well for our exams. When we have a question, we feel comfortable to ask and we receive a lot of attention. Also, BSM is located in a great, convenient area of Bangkok, close to BTS Chitlom, nearby many shopping malls, and the food court in the building is satisfying. I am very happy I decided to study in this school.
