When students hear about the the TOEFL, IELTS OR TOEIC exam they usually think 1 of 2 things:
1. This is going to be a really difficult exam
2. My English level isn't high enough
For some students, these 2 factors do not even play a part in their preparation for these exams. These exams test skills needed for studying or working abroad in an international company. These exams were not created only for YOU but for many people who choose to study and interact in the English language. Our preparation course isn't so much about your language level as it is about how you are able to pass these exams. We help you understand the format of the exams, the information they will test you on and the best way to pass the exam so that you are accepted into the university or company of your dreams.
Here is the best advice that all of our IELTS, TOEFL and TOEIC test takers will need to get them started with test preparation:
1. No matter how you decide to prepare for the exam (online, face to face, etc.) be sure that you have all of the information about the format of the exam that you will be taking. Have information about how long the exam is, how many sections will the exam have, how you should register for the exam, etc.
2. Be sure that you understand what will be asked of you in the instructions of the exam. Be sure that all of the test instructions are clear to you and that you can follow them.
3. In the speaking parts of the TOEFL and IELTS exams be sure that you speak clearly and do not use difficult vocabulary. It is not necessary to use vocabulary that is not commonly used, instead use easy vocabulary, clear speech and project your voice with a great amount of confidence so that you can get the highest score possible.
4. Get in the habit of note taking! Jot down what you hear as you are listening to the various audios for these exams. No one can remember everything so taking a few notes will be very helpful when you need to start answering your questions.
5. BE SURE TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS. Do not skip questions. Even if you are not confident about your answer, answer it anyway. Not answering the questions can cause more harm than good.
