Istanbul, Turkey (August 15, 2013) —

ETS has recently added new resources that make preparing for the TOEFL iBT® test even easier for students in Turkey. The TOEFL Program will be offering TOEFL® Talks, one-hour webinars offering an overview of the TOEFL iBT test, including helpful information such as test preparation tools and an overview of the registration process. A question and answer session will follow at the end of the presentation. The webinars are free and will be conducted in Turkish.

The sessions will be held on:

  • Monday, August 26 from 5 p.m.–6 p.m. (Local time)
  • Monday, September 2 from 5 p.m.–6 p.m. (Local time)

Test takers can register, and receive more information regarding the webinars, by contacting Tülay Imre at timre@etsglobal.org. Space is limited so test takers are encouraged to register in advance.

In addition, Educational Testing Service's (ETS) TOEFL test website, www.ets.org/toefl, is now available in Turkish. The official TOEFL website provides test takers with valuable information regarding the test format, registration, helpful preparation tips for the test and information on test centers and testing dates.

"The TOEFL Program is constantly exploring new ways to make the registration and testing process more convenient for students in Turkey," commented Jennifer Brown, Executive Director of the TOEFL Program. "Offering the live seminars in Turkish and providing the TOEFL resources in students' native languages are some concrete ways we are reaching out to students in Turkey. We hope students will take advantage of the free resources in order to do their personal best on test day."
