This course is based on archived recordings from the EFL Magazine TOEFL® Training Summit for Teachers and School Owners/Managers, originally held in August 2021.
This course includes 8 hours of professional development training videos for TOEFL® teachers on reading, writing, speaking, and listening, and an additional 2 hours with a panel discussion with the TOEFL® experts who conducted the skills training.
The expert trainers have not only written text books used to teach TOEFL® in thousands of institutions across the world, but also have decades of experience in guiding students to success in their TOEFL® tests.
Purchased separately, this kind of professional development training for TOEFL® would ordinarily cost hundreds of dollars in live workshops. EFL Magazine is making the archived collection of talks available for just $125 (Personal Learning) or $149 (Certified Learning).

This course contains the following the workshop recordings
How to Improve TOEFL® Reading Scores
Josh MacPherson explains how to improve TOEFL® reading scores, highlighting the importance of becoming adept at really reading, rather than just skimming over or scanning over a piece of text in search of keywords. Students expect that teachers will be very familiar with the TOEFL® test, and will also know to improve their test scores. Josh introduces test-taking strategies and classroom activities designed to foster an engaging classroom environment that aims to improve student performance on TOEFL® test day, regardless of the level of proficiency of a given student.
How to Improve TOEFL® Writing Scores
Dorothy Zemach explains how to improve TOEFL® writing scores and how students can become more competent in both grammar and vocal ability in a short space of time. This session also includes practical advice on how teachers can assess the writing abilities of your students in shorter periods of time.
How to Improve TOEFL® Speaking Scores
Rob Howard offers valuable advice and training on how to improve TOEFL® speaking scores and how you can help your students to improve their verbal skills upon being presented with a set of facts on which they must formulate an answer very quickly. You will learn how to place more emphasis on the answer, rather than the question itself.
How to Improve TOEFL® Listening Scores
Dorothy Zemach shows how to improve TOEFL® listening scores, which will help us to improve the listening skills of our students. You will also receive expert instruction in how to help your students to overcome any difficulties they experience with both speed and accent.
