The Test Of English as a Foreign Language (or TOEFL , pronounced "toe-full") evaluates the potential success of an individual to use and understand standard American English at a college level. It is required for non-native applicants at many US and other English-speaking colleges and universities.

I am from Korea and had to take the TOEFL as part of my requirement to attend college in the States. I found it rather easy as I am a foreign citizen but attended private schools on the East coast. I felt badly for my friends who were cramming every night looking up every other word in the dictionary. Luckily, they all passed the exam but it was a stressful time for them.

TOEFL stands for Test of English as a Foreign Language... most widely accepted English languange test to apply for foreign studies.
B4 u apply for higher educations,it is imp to go thru a test to check if u can read, listen, speak and write in English.
Frankly speaking,if u have good english u can practice it urself otherwise u might need coaching classes which easily available every where.
And if u want to practice urself,jus buy a book to know the pattern,u'll get a free CD wit it
and surf internet

Of you're applying to a University in North America, then yes you will need to sit a TOEFL exam. Some Universities in North America don't regard English as a Second Language to be a valid English proficiency test. Don't worry though, it's fairly easy and straight-forward.

No its still not the same, even though u speak english at home, ur first language is still urdu, if you are pakistani. You will still have to give the test. Dont worry its quite easy for you plus its an additional qualification that you can use when applying for universities :)

Are you sure? If she's been studying in English for the past 2-3 years, she doesn't need to take it.
