Our TOEFL programs prepare students for the following:

Reading – Students will learn various reading strategies employed in the TOEFL exam.

Students will sharpen their deduction skills and learn how to employ their own common sense to complete reading activities in the allotted time.

Writing – In Part One, students will learn writing activities, including how to interpret Trend and Comparative Graphs, Surveys and Polls, and also how to interpret diagrams depicting Natural Cycles, Industrial Procedures, Land Development and Instructions. Students will learn sentence and paragraph structures and the vocabulary associated with each graph or diagram, and how to plan and write a report in a twenty-minute time limit.

In Part Two, students will learn essay-writing activities for both Argumentative and Persuasive essays. They will learn academic grammatical forms and how to brainstorm, plan, and execute a complete essay in a forty-minute time limit.

Listening – Students will practice and improve their comprehension of spoken English and the ideas and information contained in a lecture, story or conversation. The development of listening skills focuses on recognizing the main idea of an exercise, extracting the important information of the main topic of the lecture or conversation, and answering the questions posed in each section. The exercises are designed to improve a student's ability to recognize meaning, deduct the answer from the information presented in the talk, and make the correct inference from the information presented through paraphrasing and details in a conversation or dialogue.

Speaking – Students will focus on the necessary 'native' vocabulary and answer structure needed to complete the three stages of the TOEFL speaking section. In Part One, students will practice the short answer structure to complete the interview and use expressive vocabulary to express their experiences, opinions and preferences. In Part Two, students will learn how to plan and deliver a one to two-minute speech. They will learn how to express memories and experiences and the necessary presentation skills, including intonation, stress, and volume, to add excitement to their speech. In Part Three, students will learn how to develop an argument using argumentative language to give multiple reasons, examples, conditions, or weigh the pros and cons of a given issue.
