No prior knowledge of the exam format is assumed. It is expected that students in this course already have a strong
foundation in General English and they are planning to move into using English in a more academic context. Many of the
students in the course have a goal of entering an English‐speaking post‐secondary institution. This course not only aims
to help students build a greater degree of familiarity with the TOEFL exam but also to help students attain a level of
proficiency where they are using English with ease. The course is primarily skill‐based. Each module covers common
themes in TOEFL.
