Online TOEFL Courses
We believe that our course is one of the best online tools available to students preparing for the TOEFL test. After preparing hundreds of students for the TOEFL iBT exam we created a course using all the relevant content and skill-building exercises that cover all question types included in the exam.
The structure of our course allows you to choose your own pace and master the English skills you need to succeed on the test day. The full course is formally organized in 30-day schedule but depending on your time it can be taken in shorter or longer period. Students can also purchase separate components rather the whole course depending on their needs. Taking the course is a major boost in TOEFL preparation.

About the course
The course begins with a brief introduction of the TOEFL iBT and explains the structure and the scoring of the test. During the first day (session) we will ask you to take a mini test in order to establish a base so that you can monitor and compare your progress.
The mini test will consist of:
Reading -1 passage with 12-13 questions;
Listening -1 lecture with 6 questions and 1 conversation with 5 questions;
Speaking -3 questions (1 independent and 2 integrated)
Writing -1 independent question
We allocate the next 7 days to the Reading section of the test. Each day you will cover one or two question types, e.g. factual information questions, reference questions, prose summary questions, etc. We will provide you with a detailed explanation for each question type and also give you some tips that will make you feel more confident on the test day. We also provide an example for each question type, followed by questions and the correct answers and at the end of the session you will be able to practice this particular type of question.
Each day we also help you build your Vocabulary by providing you with a list of "TOEFL words" with their explanation and synonyms.
On the last day of this week you will take an extended full Reading section test: 5 passages with 12-13 questions each.
During the second week we will continue working with you on the Listening section of the test and will start with a brief discussion about the importance of mastering a critical skill…note-taking! The structure will be similar to the structure of the previous week: each day you will work on one or two question types, we will provide an example, followed by questions and correct answers. At the end of the session you will practice a particular question type, e.g. a short lecture or conversations followed by the relevant questions which you will need to answer.
We will continue working with you on building your Vocabulary.
On the last day of the second week you will take an extended full Listening section test: 6 lectures with 6 questions for each lecture and 3 conversations with 5 questions for each conversation.
During the third week we will work with you on improving your Speaking skills. We will keep the same structure as in the previous two weeks and each day during the practice section we will give you the opportunity to respond to either 20 independent or 10 integrated questions. We will provide you with a sample response to each of the questions, which you can then compare with your own response.
We will continue providing you with a list of "TOEFL words" with their explanations and synonyms and also will continue providing you with tips that will be very helpful on the test day.
On the last day of the third week you will take a full Speaking section test, which will consist of 2 independent and 4 integrated questions. Your answers will be evaluated by our teachers and you will receive your score and detailed feedback within 72 hours of taking the test.
During the last week we will work with you on the Writing section. As in the previous weeks we will start with a brief explanation of the integrated and independent essays. You will see example essays which are scored 5, 4, and 3, and the corresponding feedback from our teachers.
Each day you will have the chance to write essays - 5 integrated and 5 independent - as well as review an example of the tasks with the relevant feedback.
On the last day of the fourth week you will take a full Writing section test, which will consist of 1 integrated and 1 independent essay. Your answers will be evaluated by our teachers and you will receive your score and detailed feedback within 72 hours of taking the test.
On the last day of the course, you will take a full test, which will be scored by our teachers.
Our teachers have more than 10 years of experience in TOEFL teaching and their assessment of your TOEFL Speaking and TOEFL Writing answers complies with the ETS Test-scoring rubrics. The feedback that you receive will not only describe the problems, but will also provide recommendations and correction of errors. For the TOEFL Reading and TOEFL Listening sections we provide an explanation of each of the answer choices.
