April 22, 2020 ETS Update

Due to health and safety concerns for both our test takers and test center staff stemming from the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, TOEFL ITP® testing has been postponed or canceled in many countries. Until institutions reopen, the TOEFL ITP Program is offering the TOEFL ITP® Level 1 Practice Tests, Volume 1 eBook and audio files for free so your students can continue to practice. The Free version is only available via the following landing page: https://www.ets.org/toefl_itp/l1v1_ebook. Just follow the instructions listed on the landing page to have access to two complete ITP tests. As with the paper test prep book, the test taker will be able to self-score the tests.
