TOEFL iBT - Internet Based Test in Ottawa

TOEFL iBT is the current format of the Test of English as a Foreign Language being conducted in Canada. Taken via the Internet, it will test the four language skills necessary for effective communication. Students will be required to use their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in an integrated fashion on the test, as they would have to in the classroom in a college or university.
