TOEFL Preparation Course: Evenings & Saturdays

The English Language Institute offers the TOEFL preparation course for those individuals seeking admission to American universities, licenses, certification in professional fields, or proof of proficiency for job placement.

The ELI TOEFL preparation course is offered at convenient times each term. Classes are small to ensure personal attention to students’ needs, and instructors are trained test specialists.

  • Paper-Based (PBT) TOEFL Preparation Course 

The TOEFL PBT Preparation is designed for advanced students seeking admission to college/university who need a TOEFL score of 550 for undergraduate studies and for graduate programs.  It is a rigorous course focusing on the three (3) skill areas tested:  Listening Comprehension, Structure and Written Expression, and Reading Comprehension. There is no speaking or essay-writing on the PBT TOEFL and the entire test is in multiple-choice format, so the course concentrates on the recognition skills and speed needed for this kind of exam.In the 50-hour, 10-week course we will cover various topics in grammar, such as subj-verb  Agreement, Verbs & Time Words, Word Order, Word Forms, Clauses, Participles, Article Usage, Gerunds & Infinities, and Commonly Confused Words. In listening, we will review Idiomatic Expressions, Phrasal Verbs, Pronunciation Distinctions, and comprehending formal and informal English.  Reading covers Main Idea, Vocabulary in Context, Fact vs. Inference, and Negative Questions. Lots of homework and timed practice tests will help you in all areas. Most students improve their initial scores by 50-60 points in 10 weeks, but this is entirely individual—you can do much more if you’re willing to work really hard!

Note:  FIU accepts both IBT and PBT, but if you are applying elsewhere, check to make sure which TOEFL is required.
