TOEFL® iBT Preparation (18 hours per week)
The intensive TOEFL iBT® class prepares students for the iBT by presenting and practicing strategies to help them improve their reading, vocabulary, listening, speaking and writing skills. In addition, students are given practice in critical thinking and note-taking skills. This class is beneficial for students who need a TOEFL® score to get into a university or graduate school program and students who need a TOEFL® score to enter a profession in the US (such as nursing or pharmacy).
Our TOEFL® program has a unique 4-week system that includes listening, speaking, reading, and writing practice on the computer. You will also have a practice TOEFL® test every 4 weeks to get an idea of your TOEFL® score. Students take a complete practice test on the computer in weeks 3, 7 and 11. The complete test is then reviewed in class, and each student receives a score.
