Put Your Students on the Right Path, Right From the Start

The TOEFL Primary tests are designed to:

  • Assess the general English-language proficiency of young students ages 8+
  • Provide a snapshot of each student’s ability in listening, reading and speaking
  • Support teaching and learning by giving information about students’ abilities in relation to a widely accepted international standard
