Objetivos

OBJETIVOS DEL CURSO:
El curso de preparación para el TOEFL tiene como objetivo proporcionar al alumno las competencias necesarias para superar con éxito las tareas del examen: Reading, Writing, Listening y Speaking.


Students will take partial and complete practice tests in order to identify specific problem areas, especially within the grammar and writing sections, and will be assigned supplementary exercises which target their weaknesses.

There will be a strong emphasis on listening practice to accustom students to different North American accents, familiarize students with common listening test topics, and improve students' overall listening skills.

Students will be encouraged to read articles close in style and topic to the reading passages on the TOEFL and will learn techniques to improve their reading speed and increase their vocabulary.

Effective ways of making a short speech and responding to a question within a short time will be examined to help students develop the skills necessary to improve their scores on the speaking section.

In order to improve their score on the writing section, students will learn the techniques required to write clearly structured essays. Other techniques such as paraphrasing, summarizing and synthesizing will also be developed. In addition, students will be provided with sample essays and essay topics.

Students will develop general and section-specific test-taking strategies aimed at improving their score on the TOEFL
