TOEFL Preparation Course

A high iBT TOEFL score is your key to entering hundreds of colleges and graduate schools across the United States. [+]

Get Ready for the TOEFL Test in Boston A high iBT TOEFL score is your key to entering hundreds of colleges and graduate schools across the United States. Here at ASC English we‘ve been preparing our students for success on the TOEFL since 1998. ASC English was one of the first ESL schools in the Boston area to teach students the skills they need to score high on the IBT TOEFL exam. Our curriculum developers attended training seminars offered by ETS to prepare a new IBT TOEFL curriculum which we began teaching the first month the IBT TOEFL was introduced. Unlike the old TOEFL exam, if you can‘t use English or speak it fluently, you can‘t pass the TOEFL exam. ASC‘s IBT curriculum focuses on the specific skills student‘s need to ace the exam. On average, our students raise their scores by 15-30 points after taking our preparation courses. TOEFL Preparation Course Highlights Experienced instructors provide personal attention while tracking your progress Our students raise their scores by 15-30 points How is ASC's TOEFL Prep different from other schools? Valuable classroom time and practice taking simulated computer tests While many other TOEFL programs are based primarily on computer tests, at ASC you'll spend valuable classroom time learning test-taking strategies. Improved study skills that will help you long after you take the iBT TOEFL Our international students will learn good note-taking skills, practice guessing the meaning of vocabulary words based on context clues, and paraphrase complicated information orally and in writing. Individual Attention Twice each session, our students will meet with ASC instructors to discuss their particular strengths and weaknesses and formulate a test-taking strategy so they can maximize their iBT TOEFL scores! Program Details Our iBT TOEFL preparation course meets 5 days a week for a total of 21 hours each week. Our students work with multiple carefully trained teachers who use ETS authentic IBT TOEFL preparation materials as well as training materials from other major publishers that closely follow actual ETS IBT TOEFL exam questions. Twice each month our teachers have a one-on-one counseling session with each of their students. Student strengths and areas which need improvement are discussed. This individualized and personal attention sets ASC English apart from other ESL schools in the Boston area. [-]
