How does TOEFL iBT’s scoring scale for Speaking mean in plain English that actually makes sense? To answer, I match up the bands on TOEFL Speaking with the CEFR (or Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) — and regular terms like “pre intermediate” or “upper intermediate.” TOEFL Speaking 26 represents an advanced score.
Based on the way that people write their Success Story, you can tell a lot about whether or not the process they used to study for TOEFL can help you. I help people develop an advanced level of English — even if they don’t have it yet.
