What is TOEFL?
TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is the most accepted English language test in the world. Passing this test is a frequent condition for studying at a foreign university. It is accepted in more than 6,000 institutions in 110 countries worldwide – including nearly every university in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
TOEFL results are also an internationally recognised certificate, which documents the knowledge of English in the global labor market. The validity of the results of the TOEFL test is two years.
What is it for?
TOEFL is designed for anyone who needs to document his/her English language skills by an internationally recognised examination. Since the tests are not divided into levels but all are of an equal difficulty level then anybody can pass them. It's the final points score which will be marked on the certificate.
Types of tests
There are two ways to take TOEFL-you can choose the online or paper version. Canadian Bilingual Institute recommends that you will check in advance the date and venue of the upcoming test and decide on what form of test you would like to register for.
The results of both forms of the test are of equal value-you choose the type mainly for your own convenience.

Grammar and reading -

Great effort is placed on proper analytical skills which are necessary to complete the TOEFL test.
An essay consists of drafting and components that are required when using complex sentences, correct use of punctuation, structural adjustment and distribution of sections in the logic of the English style.
The activities are designed and organised so each student is able to improve his/her ability to understand the dialogue about different situations of daily life and the authentic accents of native speakers.
Conversation and pronunciation -
For us, preparing for TOEFL is the main point but Canadian and American universities require students to participate in academic discussions and have the ability to present academic material at a professional level. Therefore, we have included discussions, presentations and interviews in the TOEFL program. Students are involved in activities that include formal and informal conversations. Our main focus is to build vocabulary, practising conversational skills and presentation skills. Other components which we have targeted are pronunciation and accent reduction.
TOEFL test preparation at Canadian Bilingual Institute -Language courses Bratislava is aimed primarily at 100% completion of the test.
