TOEFL® Advisor Quarterly

Register for a TOEFL® Professional Development Workshop.

The TOEFL® program is offering Propell® workshops across seven countries in the upcoming months. Countries include Finland, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Norway, and Poland. The Propell workshop is a one-day professional development program designed to help English-language teachers meet the challenges of teaching English as a second language to students. The workshop uses examples from the TOEFL iBT® Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing test sections. It provides instructional techniques and strategies for using the integrated-skills approach to teaching language and for preparing students for success.

Led by ETS-approved trainers in an interactive, hands-on classroom setting, the Propell workshop opens the door to increased success in teaching students English as a second language. Teachers will receive a Propell workshop kit that will guide them through stimulating sessions on teaching techniques and activities and help them learn more about the benefits of the TOEFL iBT test. The workshop is also an opportunity to interact with peers and provide feedback to help us improve and develop assessments that meet their needs.

"The workshop participants appreciated the opportunity to learn about the TOEFL iBT test in detail, and they were extremely interested in practical applications," Phal Vaughter, Assessment Developer at ETS said about a recent workshop held in March at the TESOL conference in Philadelphia, PA, USA. "Not only did they learn tips on teaching the TOEFL test, but they also learned how the test questions are scored."
