TOEFL Test Preparation


On March 23rd  there was a meeting of TOEFL Test Takers Club. The club was led by a student of Ternopil national economic university Diana Goliash.
The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) measures the ability of nonnative speakers of English to use and understand North American English as it is spoken, written and heard in college and university settings. Most people who take the TOEFL test are planning to study at colleges and universities where instruction is in English. In addition, many government agencies, scholarship programs, and licensing/certification agencies use TOEFL scores to evaluate English proficiency.
There were 9 participants, among them 6 students, 2 specialists and 1 volunteer. They trained in reading section of TOEFL iBT test. They had 30 minutes to read the text. Then they answered the questions and discussed the text.
