TOEFL Exam Preparation Courses:
4-week (72 hours) or 8-week (144 hours). Course start every Monday.
The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) evaluates the ability of an individual to use and understand English in an academic setting. It sometimes is an admission requirement for non-native English speakers at many English-speaking colleges and universities.
The TOEFL Preparation Course will prepare you to take the internet based test (iBT). The iBT is different because students will have to demonstrate their ability to integrate the language skills by completing tasks similar to those that they will be expected to accomplish in academic settings. The course prepares you for this by first evaluating your strengths and weaknesses and you will master important academic skills.
The course will review reading, listening, speaking and writing skills. Throughout the course you will be constantly checking your progress by taking model test. Finally, the course will help you improve your English proficiency by reviewing important language problems and identifying and applying strategies that will help you to overcome these problems.
