TOEFL® Test

The Next Generation TOEFL test, (iBT) launched September 2005, helps institutions of higher learning make decisions about the readiness of international learners to effectively communicate in an English-speaking academic environment. An integrated approach test is used as a measure of students' readiness to succeed. Thus, they need to not only understand English, but also to communicate effectively. Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking are key skill areas tested using an integrated approach. Our courses are designed to increase your successful outcome on the New TOEFL test. We strive to ensure that you, our students, have academic readiness!

AEI is an ETS Certified Test Administration site for the TOEFL iBT® Test. To register for a TOEFL exam at our school, please go to www.ets.org/toefl/.
