The aim of this program is to improve exam skills rather than increase the level of English.

Course Content: During the TOEFL Practice exam held before the course, the instructor determines the student's current score, strengths and weaknesses, and prepares a program for the needs of the student on the following topics:

Reading Skills: Reading passages during the exam are usually composed of academic articles. Student and teacher focus on reading comprehension, finding the main idea, and searching for details. They look at all the question types that they will encounter during the exam, and they complete many exercises on multiple choice, sentence placement, categorization, and summarization questions.

Writing Skills: There are 2 writing tasks during the exam. (Integrated and Independent) In class, tips are given on how to write your composition, what you should do, and what you should not do. Studies are done on composition, planning and creation.

  • Integrated: (150-225 words) First, a paragraph on the subject is read, and then the student listens to a lecture. Students are shown how to easily complete your task of comparing and contrasting the reading and the audio.
