How we train our students

A mock is conducted on the first day of training itself, to determine where the candidate stands in terms of English language skills. The candidate is given the scores, once the test is over. The classroom training then begins; we use Barron's TOEFL Book, a standard book for TOEFL to conduct these classroom sessions.

For Reading, our faculty staffs provide details about the various types of questions, passages are assigned and students are asked to solve the passages. Towards the end of each test, difficulties are discussed and answers are explained. In Listening, the test is played nonstop and students answer the questions as they listen.

For Writing, both the types of essays are explained, along with guidelines for writing the essays. These essays are then assessed, and students are advised on how to improve on their essays.

The Speaking section is conducted on a one on one basis, and is conducted on the lines of the test. Answers are discussed once the session is complete. Scores are then given and guidelines are provided to improve the scores. In this way seven practice tests are completed with the students. Once the classroom sessions are complete, mock tests are conducted.
