This document is the United States/Canada edition of the information bulletin for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and the Test of Spoken English (TSE). The bulletin provides information and registration forms necessary for taking the TOEFL or TSE. The purpose of the TOEFL is to evaluate the North American English proficiency of people whose native language is not English. The multiple-choice TOEFL consists of three sections: (1) listening comprehension; (2) structure and written expression; and (3) vocabulary and reading comprehension. At four administrations each year, the Test of Written English (TWE) is included as a direct writing assessment. The TSE evaluates spoken English proficiency, requiring examinees to orally answer questions presented in printed and recorded forms. The TOEFL, the TWE, and the TSE are commonly used by colleges and universities to determine the English proficiency of applicants. In addition to registration information, this bulletin contains practice questions for the TOEFL, the TWE, and the TSE; a score comparison table; and information about score reports. A list of institution codes for obtaining score reports is included, as is an order form for study materials. (SLD)
