If you’re an international student looking to study in the United States, you’ve probably heard of the TOEFL exam. The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is a standardized English language proficiency test for non-native English language speakers wishing to enroll in U.S. universities. Most universities require it as part of their admission criteria, so passing the test is a must if you plan to study in the States.

Luckily, there are a lot of ways to prep yourself. By understanding the format of the TOEFL Speaking section you’ll be able to answer all six speaking questions in the allotted time. Check out the infographic below for a preview of the test format, question types, scoring, and tips for boosting your performance.

And If you’re a parent or friend of a student about to take the TOEFL test, be a hero and pass this post along.
