Finding The Official TOEFL Testing-Center in their area (Country, and City) is a very serious & important part of the process of “Achieving Excellence On The TOEFL iBT Exam”.
. The fact that this was the single biggest reason for receiving emails from people all around the world, and that responding to those emails, previously, took up most of my time, is the reason why I took nearly a year to collect and publish all of the official Testing-Centers throughout the world, as given by the official website.
. Yes, the official website does give this information, but the problem is — to get this information, one first needs to actually start the registration process to get it. I don’t know who would actually spend the money to register for the exam before finding out where they actually have to take the damn thing, but I certainly wouldn’t!
. I am not exactly sure why the organization that created and administers The TOEFL iBT Exam, makes it so difficult to find this information but don’t worry… GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! has got you covered. 😉
With GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! — the process of finding The TOEFL Testing-Center in your country is actually quite easy. First — go to the TOEFL Testing Dates & Locations page on The GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! TOEFL Portal. There, you will see a page with all the letters of the alphabet.
. As it says in the directions on that page: “Click the letter below to see the available locations and dates for each country.” This means that if you are in the country of Bhutan, then you would click on The Letter B. If you are in the country of Australia, then you would click on The Letter A.
After clicking the letter for your particular country — you will come to a page that lists all the countries in the world that have support for The TOEFL iBT Exam. Naturally, you will click the link for your country.
. Next — you will see all of the up-coming dates for the locations that have testing centers in your country… (Thus the name: TOEFL Testing Dates & Locations).
Now — this is another area that seems to cause confusion for some people, because — by the definition of the word: “Location” — it would seem that the Testing-Centers should be listed there.
. The reason they are not is because: (1) The Dates & Locations pages were created long before the pages for the Testing-Centers. (2) Because the information on these pages changes frequently. (3) Because the information about the dates for each city and each Testing-Center do no correlate precisely. (Not every date is available at each testing center.) (4) The page would be as cluttered & ridiculous as the official website. 😀
All you have to do now is… Scroll down to the bottom of the page with the Testing Dates & Locations (for Your Country specifically) and click the link which says…
“To Find The Testing-Center In Your Area, Click Here“
That page will take you to the same information that is provided by the official web-site — without having to set up an account on the official site and go through the trouble of finding the information.
Since I Am In No Way Affiliated With Any Of The Testing-Centers — I do not have any more contact information, other than what is listed on the official website.
However!!! — the links for directions to the Testing-Centers on the GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! TOEFL Portal are FAR better than the ones on the official web-site! 😎
And of course — no matter how smart you are, or how good your English skills are — I HIGHLY recommend that you take a TOEFL Preparation Course. (I’ve got you covered there too 😎 )
If you are affiliated with, or know of a Testing-Center that is NOT listed on the page that you go to — please let me know. I will investigate the situation, and if they truly are an official Testing-Center — then I will certainly add them to the list.
Have An Excellent Day!
