So, to get a license for a healthcare job, you must
score high on the TOEFL iBT, Or, because you
want to enter a graduate program to further your
professional career, you must pass the TOEFL.
Whatever the reason you need to take the
TOEFL iBT, you may want to take online TOEFL
lessons to help you reach your goal. But before
buying these lessons, consider the
completeness, access, quality, cost, and
qualifications of the materials writer.
Simply put, how complete are the TOEFL lessons and
are they sufficient to prepare you for the reading,
listening, speaking, and writing sections of the test?
For example, do the lessons include instruction in
vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar, all of which
are important to help you score high on the different
sections of the test.
In addition to the completeness of the lessons in the
TOEFL course you choose, how much access will
you have to the lessons. Since some lessons may
require you to review them several times before you
have mastered the material, make sure that you are
not charged again for reviewing materials you have
already paid for. Ideally, the TOEFL course you
choose will allow you complete access all day every
day for as long as you are subscribed to the service.
Be sure they are no constraints on your lessons
BEFORE you decide to purchase them.
The third thing to consider when purchasing
TOEFL lessons is to make sure they are high
quality and TOEFL level. High quality means
that the lessons are written with standard
English usage, grammar, and punctuation
and that they are written for the purpose to
prepare the user for the demands English
required by the TOEFL exam. TOEFL level
means the lessons are written at the same
level of vocabulary and grammar as the actual
The quality of the lessons may also affect the cost,
but you want to make sure that the lessons are not
excessively priced. For instance, some TOEFL
courses may cost as little as $35 per month,
whereas other courses may cost more than
$1,500 per month. You should find a TOEFL
course whose lessons will not cost you an arm
and a leg.
The last and perhaps most important aspect to
consider when purchasing TOEFL lessons is
the qualifications of the materials writer and
instructor of your TOEFL lessons. Ideally, you
want someone with a minimum of a Master's
Degree in English with an emphasis in
TESOL. Also, you want someone who has
been teaching TOEFL for at least 5 years and
is familiar with the format of the TOEFL iBT.
