Agents and their clients who want to get an in-depth look at the TOEFL iBT® test can now enroll in the new massive open online course (MOOC), hosted by edX. This is a unique opportunity to prepare for the TOEFL iBT test and develop English-language skills that immigration agencies, professional bodies, universities and other institutions look for in applicants.

TOEFL Test Preparation: The Insider’s Guide, beginning on Monday, June 13, 2016, is a six-week course designed by the experts who created the TOEFL test. Each week will focus on different aspects of the test. There will be a general introduction in week one, followed by a week for each of the four skills tested — Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing — then concluding in week six with test-day information and other helpful tips.

The course features a mix of short lectures, including “Inside the TOEFL Test” videos for each question type and sample questions from past tests complete with answer explanations. During the Speaking and Writing weeks, the team that developed the TOEFL test will review a handful of responses and provide evaluation and feedback. You will also get to meet and share information with students from around the world through discussion boards.

Weekly commitment to the MOOC is no more than two hours per week. Although the course is free, you will have the option to sign up for a verified certificate that will highlight the knowledge and skills you gained upon completing the MOOC.

The course is accessible with an internet connection on most devices. Visit https://www.ets.org/toefl/insidersguide to enroll.
