In today's globalizing world, studying abroad is not only an interesting experience, but also a chance in the future to get a paying job, Executive position, a promotion. For foreigners arriving at us and canadian universities from countries in which English is not the official, more than fifty years ago introduced a standardized exam TOEFL.
