TOEFL® Test Preparation

TOEFL® – 648 HOURS (THREE TERMS)

The Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL®) is a standardized test created and administered by Educational Testing Service in order to assess a non-native speaker’s ability to effectively communicate in English in an academic setting. Most American universities require a TOEFL® score for admission. Many government agencies, private companies, licensing bodies, and scholarship boards also require a score.

MLI’s TOEFL® program is an intensive look at the skills and strategies necessary to achieve a successful score on the four sections of the Internet-Based Test (iBT). In addition to classroom instruction, MLI regularly makes use of the computer lab at each campus in order to provide students with a more authentic iBT TOEFL® experience. Computer practice is given in each subject area, but there is special emphasis on writing and speaking skills.

The class is divided into the following sections:

In the Reading section, students are introduced to the ten question types presented in the iBT reading section and learn strategies to answer the questions more effectively.

The Listening section introduces students to the six question types presented in the iBT listening section. Students will learn note-taking strategies to effectively capture main i deas and details.

In the Independent Speaking section, strategies are presented to improve speaking, organization, and pronunciation. Students speak on topics that simulate actual TOEFL® prompts, and are given feedback by the instructor.

As its name suggests, the Integrated Speaking section combines speaking with several other skill groups to simulate an actual academic context. This class gives students practice at responding orally to various written and recorded material. Strategies are presented to improve speaking, reading, listening, note-taking, and pronunciation. Students speak on topics that simulate actual TOEFL® prompts, and are given feedback by the instructor.

In Independent Writing, strategies are presented to help students write standard American English essays. Students write on topics that simulate actual TOEFL® prompts, and are given feedback by the instructor.

I like MLI for many reasons, first is the location, it is in California so the weather is always good and it is a beautiful place to be. Second, I feel the programs here are very good, I started at the beginning level and because my teachers are great, I moved up and improved my English very quickly. I plan on taking the TOEFL here as well, and I know MLI will give me the English skills needed to attend a university in America which is my dream!... Read more
