Number of Japanese TOEFL® Test Takers Reaches All-Time High in 2011

06/03/12

origin: Number of Japanese TOEFL® Test Takers Reaches All-Time High in 2011 (http://www.ets.org)

Princeton, N.J. (March 6, 2012) —
Educational Testing Service (ETS) announced an 11 percent increase in the number of Japanese students taking the TOEFL iBT® test for 2011 from the prior year, representing the largest number of Japanese TOEFL® test takers in history.

The number of institutions accepting TOEFL scores from Japanese students also grew to over 8,500 worldwide in more than 130 countries. The TOEFL test continues to be the most widely accepted English-language assessment used for admissions purposes internationally, with significantly more institutions recognizing the TOEFL test than any other English-language assessment.

"Taking the TOEFL test is more appealing than ever to Japanese students," commented David Hunt, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of ETS’s Global Division. "Japanese students recognize the convenience of having to take only one English-language assessment that is accepted at nearly every institution around the world including those in Australia, Canada, the U.K. and the United States."

To assist the significant number of Japanese test takers, ETS has various resources, including:

TOEFL Resource Center in Japan: ETS and CIEE continue to provide Japanese students with the latest TOEFL information through the resource center. Available by email at toefl@cieej.or.jp, telephone at 81-3-5467-5477, or online at http://www.cieej.or.jp, students can receive general information about the TOEFL test, including what the test is like and assistance in identifying test preparation materials. Students should still contact the Prometric Regional Registration Center at 81-3-5541-4800 to register, reschedule or cancel a test administration or make changes to their profile.
TOEFL Customer Support Center in Japan: Available by phone at 0120-981-925 and via email at TOEFLsupport4japan@ets.org, students can receive assistance with pre- or post-administration questions pertaining to the TOEFL test, such as ordering score reports.
"Inside the TOEFL® Test" video series: A new five-part video series available at http://www.ets.org/jp/toefl/ibt/about/video_library, offers an in-depth look at the TOEFL iBT Speaking and Writing questions, including tips, sample questions, scoring criteria and a sample response.
ETS Website: The TOEFL section of the ETS website is also now available in Japanese at http://www.ets.org/jp/toefl. Students can learn about upcoming events, the latest TOEFL news and additional study resources.
TOEFL Scholarship Program in Japan: The deadline for the 2012 TOEFL Scholarship Program, offering USD$40,000 in scholarships for Japanese students, is April 13, 2012.
