For international students living in China, in response to Chinese testing centers closing for the month of February due to the Novel Coronavirus, Arizona State University has temporarily approved the use of the Duolingo English test in place of the in-person TOEFL, IELTS and PTE English proficiency exams. Duolingo English tests taken between Feb. 3 and July 31, 2020 will be accepted.
The exam cost $49 (USD) and may be taken from any computer that has a camera, audio and reliable internet. The exam portion of the Duolingo English test contains a series of speaking, reading, writing and listening exercises.
