They will identify the main ideas in a short lecture and academic conversation and will write an opinionated paragraph.  

Students will have an opportunity to study all four sections of the exam: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. They will work with partners and in groups to practice forming responses to questions that are similar to those they will find on the TOEFL exam and will get feedback from their classmates and instructor. This course starts and ends with a practice exam in order for students to see their improvement over the duration of the course.
