  2. Goal Setting: Based on the needs assessment, specific goals are established for your TOEFL preparation. These goals may include target scores, focus areas, and a timeline for achieving them.

  3. Lesson Content: Lessons are designed to target the different sections of the TOEFL exam, namely reading, listening, speaking, and writing. The content of the lessons typically includes:

    • Reading: Developing strategies for effective reading comprehension, identifying key information, and answering questions.
    • Listening: Practicing active listening skills, note-taking techniques, and improving comprehension of spoken English.
    • Speaking: Engaging in speaking activities, practicing response structures, and developing fluency and coherence in spoken English.
    • Writing: Learning essay organization, structuring ideas, and practicing writing coherent and well-developed responses.
  4. Instruction and Practice: During the lessons, instructors provide explanations, examples, and strategies related to each section of the TOEFL exam.
