The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) measures the ability of non-native speakers of English to use and understand North American English as it is spoken, written and heard in college and university settings. Most people who take the TOEFL test are planning to study at colleges and universities where instruction is in English. It s is almost essential that students wishing to study at universities in the US, Canada and Australia submit high TOEFL scores.
The ITP (Institutional Testing Program) is a mock TOEFL examination. The test is divided into three sections: listening comprehension; structure and written expression; and reading comprehension and vocabulary. Although TOEFL examinations are usually computer-based, the ITP version is paper-based.

TOEIC is the acronym for Test of English for International Communication. This test is a global standard for the assessment of communicative English ability. The most important feature of the TOEIC test is that the proficiency of the examinee is expressed as a numerical score between 5 and 495 for both the listening and reading parts, giving a total score between 10 and 990 rather than pass or fail. TOEIC® L&R TEST (IP) is the institutional program, and is comprised of a listening section (section 1: 45 minutes) and a reading section (section 2: 75 minutes).
