TOEFL Prep

GENY's TOEFL iBT Preparation Program is for advanced English language students and for those who have already taken the TOEFL iBT and wish to improve their scores. Our course is taught only by experienced teachers who have helped many foreign English language students achieve success on the TOEFL iBT. When students complete this program, they will have acquired both a greater understanding of the TOEFL iBT itself and stronger academic skills, which they will need for American colleges and universities.

Our program focuses on every area of the TOEFL iBT, especially the speaking and writing sections, where students will learn and practice using our proven test formats and strategies. TOEFL iBT vocabulary is also stressed throughout the course, along with an ample amount of class time dedicated to practicing the other sections on the test. There is a complete TOEFL iBT pre-test and a post-test included in the course along with ten mini tests, so that students can see their progress during the course. We have also included five mini vocabulary tests and a final vocabulary test because we understand how critical TOEFL iBT vocabulary is for our students both on the test and in their future academic studies.

Sample Class Schedule



*Additional listening and speaking exercises are usually added to the daily schedule when there is extra time in class.

Aside from our dynamic classroom activities, students also have the opportunity to practice writing TOEFL iBT essays and responding to TOEFL iBT speaking questions throughout the course, all of which are graded by our experienced teachers. In addition, our computer labs include supplemental TOEFL iBT reading and listening exercises that students can utilize during workshop hours. All in all, we are confident that international English language students who apply themselves to our TOEFL iBT program will achieve their goals.
