March 31, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 152

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 TOEFL test.


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.
