    TOEFL®
    The Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL®)

    18 hours/wk program
    Prerequisite: Completion of Intermediate (Track 2) or higher, or a minimum Placement Test score of 53.

    The Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL®) is a standardized test created and administered by Educational Testing Service in order to assess a non-native speaker’s ability to effectively communicate in English in an academic setting. Most American universities require a TOEFL® score for admission. Many government agencies, private companies, licensing bodies, and scholarship boards also require a score.

    MLI’s TOEFL® program is an intensive look at the skills and strategies necessary to achieve a successful score on the four sections of the Internet-Based Test (iBT). In addition to classroom instruction, MLI regularly makes use of the computer lab at each campus in order to provide students with a more authentic iBT TOEFL® experience. Computer practice is given in each subject area, but there is special emphasis on writing and speaking skills.The class is divided into the following sections:

    In the Reading section, students are introduced to the ten question types presented in the iBT reading section and learn strategies to answer the questions more effectively.

    The Listening section introduces students to the six question types presented in the iBT listening section. Students will learn note-taking strategies to effectively capture main ideas and details.

    In the Independent Speaking section, strategies are presented to improve speaking, organization, and pronunciation. Students speak on topics that simulate actual TOEFL® prompts, and are given feedback by the instructor.

    As its name suggests, the Integrated Speaking section combines speaking with several other skill groups to simulate an actual academic context. This class gives students practice at responding orally to various written and recorded material. Strategies are presented to improve speaking, reading, listening, note-taking, and pronunciation. Students speak on topics that simulate actual TOEFL® prompts, and are given feedback by the instructor.

    In Independent Writing, strategies are presented to help students write standard American English essays. Students write on topics that simulate actual TOEFL® prompts, and are given feedback by the instructor.

    Like Integrated Speaking, the Integrated Writing section gives students practice combining several skills together. Students are given written and recorded materials and are asked to respond in writing. Strategies are presented to improve reading, listening, note-taking, and writing. Students write on topics that simulate actual TOEFL® prompts, and are given feedback by the instructor.

    In addition to regular course work, three full-length practice tests will be taken per term.

    ESL Program CMAR: 25 hours/wk Program
    This program is designed to offer students a well-rounded curriculum that includes all of the parts of ESL (listenings/speaking/reading/grammar) with the added advantage of pronunciation practice. MLI’s Conversation Management and Accent Reduction Class (CMAR) is a comprehensive pronunciation course covering all the major consonant and vowel sounds in the English language. The class is structured to allow for group practice but also for guided one-on-one assistance from the teacher. In addition to guided pronunciation practice, listening components ensure that the students can aurally recognize the sounds that they are being asked to replicate. The textbooks are rotated so that students may take the CMAR portion of the class for several terms without repeating the same material.
