TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is a required exam for non-native English speakers who wish to study at colleges or universities where instruction is in English. Students will familiarize themselves with the TOFEL test structure and learn important test-taking strategies. We will focus on the four parts of the exam (Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing) in order to review and increase understanding in these main areas.
- Review and practice skills for the sections of the TOEFL exam
- Learn relevant vocabulary that will appear on the TOEFL exam
- Review test-taking strategies and tips for the TOEFL exam
- Complete sections from a practice TOEFL exam to see how you have improved and where improvement is required
