TOEFL stands for Test Of English as Foreign Language. This is an exam which is used to test the ability of a person in Reading, Listening, Writing, Speaking sections of English. So, particularly there is no syllabus for TOEFL exam. It is based on general topics, which we will see in our daily life.

TOEFL Exam pattern:- (120 marks)
This exam will be based on the following sections
1.Reading - 30 marks
2.Writing - 30 marks
3.Listening - 30 marks
4.Speaking - 30 marks
All the sections will deal with the topics, which we will hear in our day today life. But, we should be capable to read and understand these tasks. You should be able to write about those topics with a good vocabulary. And you should score above 70 marks to get admission in a good university. If you are good at English, this will be very easy exam for you. Otherwise, you can join in coaching center to get coaching for TOEFL exam.
