Our TOEFL Preparation Course meets five days per week, for a total of 24 lessons each week. Students work with our experienced TOEFL teacher, and the most up-to-date, effective textbooks and materials available. There is a two-part approach to the TOEFL Preparation Course. First, we focus is on improving your English skill. Students work on vocabulary building, critical listening and reading, essay writing, and speaking. The second focus is on building TOEFL skills and test strategies to help you get a good score. Every TOEFL iBT exam is different, but each test has the same types of questions. We help you get familiar with the kinds of questions TOEFL asks. Once each week, students sharpen their skills by taking practice TOEFL tests - a great way to build test taking stamina and monitor your improvement. At the end of each four-week session, each student has a one-on-one counseling session with their teacher. This is how we help you monitor your progress. After each three month semester, students receive a report card. All students receive a GEOS certificate.
