The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is used to measure English language proficiency. It is an internet based test and an important requirement for you to study in any English-speaking country.
It evaluates how well you combine your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills to perform academic tasks.
Test takers need a valid international passport as an identifying document on the day of the exam.
The test usually lasts for 4 hours, so you are advised to plan your day without having other serious engagements.
We prepare students ahead of the test; a minimum of 4 weeks is required for the tutorials.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration. IELTS is one of the two major English-Language tests in the world, the other being the TOEFL.
IELTS assesses all of your English skills — Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking, and is designed to reflect how you will use English at study, at work, and at play, in your new life abroad.
There are two versions of the IELTS: The Academic Version and The General Training Version.
- The Academic Version is intended for those who want to enroll in universities and other institutions of higher education and for professionals such as medical doctors and nurses who want to study or practice in an English-speaking country.
- The General Training Version is intended for those planning to undertake non-academic training or to gain work experience, or for immigration purposes.
All candidates must complete four Modules – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking – to obtain a band score, which is shown on the IELTS Test Report Form (TRF). All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking Modules, while the Reading and Writing Modules differ depending on whether the candidate is taking the Academic or General Training Versions of the Test.
Each IELTS candidate in Nigeria is required to present a valid international passport as an identifying document at the test center on the test day before he/she will be allowed into the test room.
