Instructor: S. Raskin
TEXTBOOK: LONGMAN Preparation Course for the TOEFL: iBT (Required)
Audio CD’S: LONGMAN Preparation Course for the TOEFL: iBT (Set of 8 CD’s) (Optional)
Audio CD’s for listening practice, and speaking and writing tasks will be on reserve in the Media Section of the library.
This course is designed to provide instruction and intensive drill in order to improve students’ test score performance in each of the four main skills tested on the internet-based TOEFL (iBT): Reading (including vocabulary), Listening, Speaking, and Writing. Differences between the traditional paper and pencil TOEFL, the previous computer-based TOEFL (CBT), and the iBT will be discussed.
Students will spend approximately 10 hours in the computer lab becoming familiar with the internet-based TOEFL, learning the computer techniques necessary for the test, and practicing the various types of questions which are tested on the iBT.
In order to cover all the materials in the course adequately, students will be expected to do a substantial amount of homework each week.
Note: To receive a Certificate of Attendance students must have at least 75% attendance (no more than 5 absences).
