TOEFL, like IELTS is also a simple English exam. If you are comfortable with English you will not need any coaching for this exam. The only difference between TOEFL and IELTS is that TOEFL is a completely computer based test where as IELTS is a paper based test.

If you are unsure about the exam, you could do two things:

  • take a free mock test at our office
  • attend a couple of classes at our institute, again free of cost

The duration is 5 weeks or 3 weeks

As for the timings, you can have a class at any of the following times:

  • 06:30 – 08:00 am
  • 08:30 – 10:00 am
  • 10:30 – 12:00 noon

If you need any more information, please feel free to contact us.

If you are planning to study abroad, the TOEFL test is the one test that can take you anywhere.

In fact, more institutions accept TOEFL test scores than any other test scores in the world — more than 7,000 colleges, universities and licensing agencies in more than 130 countries, to be exact.

The TOEFL iBT measures how well you read, listen, speak and write in English and use these skills together in the university classroom. For example, you might read a passage or listen to a lecture, and then write or speak about what you learned.
