Students around the world wanting help with the TOEFL English test have a new tool: a mobile app.The "TOEFL? official app" became available last week. Users can download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play.TOEFL stands for 'Test of English as a Foreign Language.'Students must pass the test to get into many universities in the United States and other English-speaking countries.It is made up of four parts: reading, listening, writing and speaking.Test-takers will be able to use it for everything from registration and test preparation, to receiving their scores and requesting health-related accommodations.What we wanted to do through the app is to meet them where they are on their own terms and schedule,and on the devices they increasingly prefer to use, said Srikant Gopal.He leads the TOEFL program at the non-profit Educational Testing Service, or ETS, and recently spoke with VOA about the new app.
世界各地想要获得托福考试帮助的学生现在有一种新工具了：移动app。"托福官方app"上周上线了。用户可以从苹果应用商店或者谷歌市场上现在这款app。托福的英文全称是Test of English as a Foreign Language（将英语作为一门外语的考试）。学生们必须要通过托福才能进入美国以及其他说英语国家的很多大学。托福考试由4部分组成：阅读、听力、写作、口语。参加考试的人可将托福考试成绩用于许多地方，从注册、准备考试、查询成绩到要求与健康有关的住宿，不一而足。我们想通过这个app做的事情是满足学生的需求，让学生可以根据自己的情况和时间来安排，根据自己更喜欢用的设备安排，斯里坎特如是说道。斯里坎特是非盈利组织美国教育考试服务中心（ETS）托福项目的负责人。斯里坎特最近就这款新的app接受了VOA的采访。
