ETS Launches TOEFL Junior

TOEFL-Junior.jpg This week more than 500 Korean middle school students were the first to take the new TOEFL Junior from ETS. Additional administrations will soon follow in 12 other countries including France, Brazil, and Vietnam. The TOEFL Junior is designed to be a low-stakes assessment of middle school-level English language proficiency that measures listening and reading ability as well as knowledge of language form and meaning.

"Because the TOEFL Junior test is a global assessment, students, teachers, administrators, and parents around the world can depend on it for objective information about English language skills to support placement decisions after admission to these schools or in any country using bilingual approaches to instruction," explains Dr. Philip Tabbiner, Senior Vice President of ETS Global Partnerships.
