TOEFL is one of the largest, international and standardized authoritative tests of foreign languages at present. The success of TOEFL can be attributed to ETS, the largest educational test and research institution in the world. As an intermediary institution for educational tests, ETS contributes some important inspirations on its aim, personnel structure, services etc. to the reform of intermediary language testing institutions in China. Language testing institutions in China must reinforce the awareness of better services, improve the personnel structure and develop global strategies in order to speed up the socialized reform in language tests in China.
