Preparation courses for TOEFL tests

All the TOEFL tests provide evidence of the candidate’s English proficiency for school or academic purposes. Depending on the age group, different TOEFL tests are applicable. For academic purposes in particular, it is vital to know whether the TOEFL iBT or ITP is required. Our language trainers and consultants can provide you with comprehensive information. We have compiled a short overview below:


The TOEFL iBT (Internet Based Test) is an admission requirement at many universities and further education institutions. It is the world's leading English language test in this field and is accepted by more than 12,500 universities in over 160 countries. In the iBT, all four areas of competence are examined: reading, listening, speaking and writing. Berlitz offers TOEFL preparation courses for the iBT, but the exam itself can only be taken at approved ETS Test Centers, and takes less than 2 hours to be completed.


In contrast to the iBT, the TOEFL ITP ("Institutional Testing Program") primarily serves in Germany or non-English speaking countries as a test of your current English proficiency. It assesses your skills in reading, listening and grammar, but not speaking and writing, as in the iBT. You can take the ITP exam in numerous Berlitz Centers, and preparation courses are also possible at Berlitz in various formats.

TOEFL Primary / TOEFL Junior

The TOEFL Primary and TOEFL Junior tests are available for school age candidates. TOEFL Primary is aimed at English learners in elementary school, and TOEFL Junior is designed for those in the middle school age group (11+). Berlitz offers preparatory courses for TOEFL Junior, and the examination can also be taken in selected Berlitz language schools.
