TOEFL and IELTS Preparation


Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)
The TOEFL is an internationally accepted standard for academic English proficiency required by most American and other English-speaking universities. The test evaluates a potential student’s ability to use English as it is spoken, written, and heard in an academic environment. This exam is a required certification at more than 5000 universities and colleges worldwide. The TOEFL plays a key role in admissions decisions for international applicants.

The TOEFL is also a valuable tool for those who wish to apply for professional certification or licensure to gain marketability in an English-speaking job market.

TOEFL Preparation Course*
Our TOEFL Preparation classes greatly increase students’ chances of achieving a successful score on the exam. The IEI offers this course to students in Levels 4, 5, and 6. By practicing various test questions, analyzing sections of the exam, and learning test-taking strategies, students gain valuable tools for success and approach the exam with greater confidence.

International English Language Testing System Exam (IELTS)
The IELTS exam is an alternative to the TOEFL that is now accepted at many American and other English-speaking universities as proof of English ability. The test evaluates a potential student or professional’s ability to use English as it is spoken, written, and heard in an academic environment; however, the format is somewhat different from that of the TOEFL.

IELTS Preparation Course*
In our IELTS Preparation classes, students are guided through the different sections of the exam, learning and practicing test-taking strategies to improve scores. The IEI offers this course primarily to students in Levels 4, 5, and 6; students in Level 3 may also qualify for this comprehensive course.

In the past four years alone, many of our students have successfully used the knowledge they have gained in our test preparation courses to improve their standardized test scores, making it possible for them to complete their admission packages to over 45 universities in the United States, including FAU.

*You must pass a pre-qualifying test, given at the beginning of each term, to take either of these courses.
