TOEFL Junior starts receiving application
By Kang Shin-who
TOEFL Junior started receiving applications Wednesday for the first time. The inaugural exam is scheduled for Oct. 24 and the test organizer Educational Testing Service (ETS) will open the applications for a month until Sept. 30.
Applicants can register online at www.toefljunior.or.kr, or visit designated venues across the nation.
The English ability test, for those aged 12-15, consists of 126 questions in three parts; listening, reading comprehension and language form and meaning.
The test will be in written form and the fee is set at 39,600 won ($33). The maximum score is set at 900 points and test takers will receive their results in early December.
ETS plans to run the exam eight times a year and will soon introduce a computer-based version including speaking and writing parts.
