Can I Do The TOEFL Exam At Home?

.

 

Answer:

.

Technically…  Yes

.

 

.

But If You Do Not Want To Loose Your Money, Your Time, And ALL Of Your Privacy (Including After The Exam Is Finished) — Then You Should NOT Take The TOEFL Exam At Home!!!

.

 

As a response to the global, so-called “Covid-19 Crisis” (hoax) of 2020 & 2021 — ETS announced that they have a new “edition” of The TOEFL iBT Exam — “The TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition”.  And what they say is that — with this new “edition” of the exam — a person who is not able to get to an Official TOEFL Testing Center is supposed to be able to take the exam from the “safety & comfort” of their own home…  as long as they meet certain requirements.
.

The short answer to that question is:  “Yes”.  You CAN do The TOEFL At Home.  As long as you have the proper equipment, high-speed internet, and COMPLETE Privacy — then it is POSSIBLE — but I HIGHLY recommend NOT doing what ETS refers to as “The TOEFL Home Edition”.

 

.

Notice!  —  ETS says that you can only take The TOEFL Exam at home if you are in a country that already hosts The TOEFL Exam.  This, of course, (like many other aspects of this version of the exam) makes no sense at all, considering that it is done on-line.

Therefore — you SHOULD be able to do it anywhere that there is an internet connection.  But that is not the case.

Also —  you can NOT do the home edition if you are in China or Iraq (even though The TOEFL Exam is available in those countries).  No explanation is give for why this is so.

.

 

But there is a LOT more about this Exam that makes it a HORRIBLE idea, and a terrible option for you as the test-taker.  Watch the video below to find out why.

 

 

.

So What Should You Do?

.

 

If you have the ability to wait until the next available time to be able to take The TOEFL Exam in an actual Official Testing Center — then just wait.  There are still dates being added to nearly all locations around the word.
.

 

THE “NORMAL” TOEFL EXAM HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED!!!

 

I have already heard from MANY people about the absolutely ridiculous restrictions & problems that they have experienced with The TOEFL Home Edition — which means that it is very probable that if you take this version of The TOEFL — you will also loose your money, and waste a lot of time by having to do it over again (at your expense) at a normal Testing Center.
.

 

So, “Yes”…  You Can Do The TOEFL At Home…  But I Do NOT Recommend It

 

 

Have An Excellent Day!
