TOEFL Information

The CLC is a certified TOEFL testing center.


What is the IBT TOEFL?

The IBT TOEFL (Internet-Based Test of English as a Foreign Language) is a test of your ability in the English language. It is given on-line and includes listening, speaking, reading and writing. All American universities require that foreign students achieve a certain score on the TOEFL as a condition to being accepted into the university. A TOEFL score is one a many things you’ll need to provide the university.

Who can take the IBT TOEFL?

Anyone who wants to pay for it. But if you do not have a good level in English, it is a waste of time and money.

How can I prepare for the TOEFL?

The best preparation for TOEFL is to have studied English from a communicative approach (such as is offered at the CLC) for at least 400-500 hours in a classroom setting while doing as much outside reading and listening as possible. There are also TOEFL preparation classes at the CLC and elsewhere to help you practice certain skills and take practice tests.

When can I take it?

Check the TOEFL website for testing times in Marrakech.

How do I sign up for the TOEFL?

Go to the website and following the directions for setting up an account. If you have trouble doing this, someone at the CLC can help you.

You then can either pay the fees at the same time or else come back to the account and pay the fees later.

How much does it cost?

The test now costs $185 which can be paid by credit card through the TOEFL site. If you do not have an international credit card, the CLC can register for you, in which case you will pay a service charge of 200 dh for CLC students, 400 dh for any others.

What if I register and I can’t take the test?

ETS will reimburse only PART of the fees paid if you cancel. Check the site for the exact amount. The CLC will reimburse 350 of the 400 dh paid.
