Practice TOEFL Speaking, Receive Feedback over Zoom

In this Cohort led by an ESL teacher, we’ll meet twice a week to practice for the TOEFL speaking section.

I’m an ESL teacher from Brazil. For the past year or so, I’ve been preparing students for the TOEFL exam. In 2013, I studied for IELTS intensely for 3 months while I was in Ireland. I’ve decided to take the TOEFL myself, so I can feel what my students feel.

As part of Class Central’s experiments on social learning, I am organizing a Cohort on TOEFL Speaking. For two weeks, beginning Nov 22, we will study the TOEFL Speaking Series and meet twice a week over Zoom to practice together. The Cohort welcomes everyone. You can enroll here.

The TOEFL iBT® Speaking section is designed to measure your ability to speak English effectively in academic settings. It is composed of 4 tasks that resemble real-life situations you might encounter both in and outside of a classroom.

In each Zoom session, we will practice these specific tasks:

In these sessions, I will provide rubrics similar to the ones TOEFL examiners use to score your performance, so you can receive real-time feedback from your peers and me. 

In addition, this will be a great chance to test yourself and practice speaking in public. If the group is too big, we can create breakout rooms so everybody will have the opportunity to speak during the sessions.

That’s the plan. Come join us! You can enroll here.

    Hi Fabio, and rest of the Class Central Team,
    I just want to briefly express my gratitude for this course. I think of taking the TOEFL exam in following months and this course sounded like a miracle to help me advance in my studies.

    I know Fabio from ALOHAF Study Group and I can’t wait to learn by and with him again. Thank you for your time and effort!

    Sincerely,
    Kerem.
