TOEFL Practice Online

Educational Testing Service (ETS), the U.S. company that administers the TOEFL test, has launched TOEFL Practice Online, which it describes as "a community for test takers preparing for the next generation TOEFL test being introduced in September 2005." It is the only Web site that has official test material from the new TOEFL test that will assess all four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking. By becoming a member of the new site, you can access helpful information, discussion boards, sample responses from a speaking test, and purchase a practice test. Without the speaking section, the practice test costs $20 and includes an unofficial score and feedback. The speaking test costs an additional $30, and sample questions can be viewed after free registration. This part of the test has six parts and takes about 20 minutes. After each question there is a 15-30-second thinking period before answering, and actual speaking time adds up to about 45-60 seconds in total. Answers are digitally recorded via a mic and assessed at the ETS test center.
