We offer online and in-person classes for the TOEFL iBT exam. The TOEFL iBT test measures your ability to use and understand English at the university level. In addition, it measures how well you combine your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills to perform academic tasks. The internet-based TOEFL is offered throughout most regions of the world by ETS (Educational Testing Service) and the score is accepted internationally. The test has four parts: 1) Reading; 2) Listening, 3) Speaking and 4) Writing. Test scores range between 0-120. More than 27 million people from all over the world have taken the TOEFL test to demonstrate their English-language proficiency and nearly 1.2 million take the exam every year. The average English skill level ranges between Intermediate and Advanced.
Students can find more details about the iBT online at http://www.toefl.org. To schedule an appointment for the Internet-based TOEFL, call 1-800-468-6335 (in the U.S.) or find a Regional Registration Center. Students may also register online.

Like any standardized test, study and practice are a must for scoring well, yet unlike other standardized tests, the TOEFL IBT is difficult to study and prepare for on one's own, and the information to be studied along with the skills to be practiced are quite different. There are many books out there to help with this but nothing can replace the guided study and practice of a Test Preparatory Course. Test Prep-courses offer the best in advanced English guidance as well as the latest in teacher-guided practice exercises and drills, building those afore mentioned skills and aptitude.
