Toefl - Test of English as Foreign Language.
There are 4 sections in teofl IBT
Reading, Listening, Speaking and writing. Almost all of them are boring (honestly i was never tortured much any where). You have to sit there almost for about 5 hrs listening, reading more than 10 paragraphs and listening to more than 2 hrs of lectures. The scoring is on a scale of 0-120. More than 100 is considered a good score. Some universities requirement of toefl to get admission or require you to complete addition courses in english after admitting you. Sometimes reading may contain listening and other sections also contain integrated tasks which might require other skills. So the new toefl ibt is tougher the TOEFL CBT.
