The TOEFL was updated on July 26, 2023. You can learn more about the changes here!
To recap, the test will be shorter because there are fewer Reading and Listening questions. As for content, review the list below:
- Reading - No changes! You'll see the same question types.
- Listening - No changes! You'll see the same question types.
- Speaking - No changes! You'll see the same question types.
