- Reading: Read 3 or 4 passages from academic texts and answer questions.
- Listening: Listen to lectures, classroom discussions and conversations, then answer questions.
- Speaking: Express an opinion on a familiar topic; speak based on reading and listening tasks.

TOEFL iBT FAQs
In general, an ID must be an original document, not a photocopy. It must not be expired, and it must display the full name you used to register for the test. It must also have a photograph and a signature. Drivers licenses and government IDs are typical accepted IDs for US citizens.
IF YOU ARE NOT A US CITIZEN: Candidates who are not US citizens must present a current passport as identification. If your name does not appear in English language letters on the passport, you must also present a secondary ID, such as a license, student ID, or bill. If you are a permanent resident, you can present your green card, along with a supplementary ID (student ID, license, government ID). Candidates without proper identification will not be allowed to test.
We recommend that you review the TOEFL ID requirements and ensure you have all required documentation before registering for your test session.
