Demonstrate Your True Worth

You will have access to a self-study course with live classes to focus on:

Accent Reduction

During group lessons, basic accent concepts will be taught to have a clear, intelligible and a neutral accent.


Students will have an opportunity to speak in every lesson and be guided to improve their fluency with many strategies.

Topic Development

There will be many specific activities to practice for how to find specific details, examples and organize a response.

Language Use

Students will be able to see their grammar mistakes on the transcribed and corrected responses. Better vocabulary choices will be shown.

Here is Your Study Plan


Week 1: New Task 1


· How to speak naturally with native-like phrases. TOEFL raters are tired of hearing those unnatural and memorized phrases that everybody learned from other tutors and YouTube videos> “The first reason is that….. The second reason is that….. 
· How to create high-quality responses that will impress TOEFL graders. The responses will be unique to you with your own phrases.
· Self-study tools to speak confidently and fluently.
· Learn your own weaknesses about what limits and maximizes your score in terms of Topic Development Language Use and Delivery.
· How to stop having common grammar mistakes.

Week 2: Task 2

· How to produce high scoring Task 2 responses which will change your score from” fair” to “good” consistently with confidence.
· Activities and protocols to impress the TOEFL graders in topic development, language use, and delivery.
· How to stop having common grammar mistakes.



Week 3: Task 3-4


· Note-taking strategies that don’t sabotage your ability to speak fluently with all the essential points.
· How to find the concept in the reading in task 4 quickly and easily.
· The grammar and phrases you need to describe the examples and ideas.
· How to create simple but effective academic responses by managing the time.

Week 4: Delivery

Focus: Strategies for clear speech.

·How you sound makes a big difference in your score. If you sound flat and mechanical, pause in the wrong places in a sentence, you will not get 26+ or you will be stuck at 24 for a long time even if you have excellent topic development and language use.
· Using voice stress to convey meaning is important. Native speakers communicate additional information through the rise and fall of pitch, and by stressing or emphasizing certain words in the sentence.
· To get 26+ in Speaking, you need to be aware of how we use intonation to express different emotions and attitudes through our voice. To improve your tone of voice, you need to become more sensitive to how stress and intonation work in English.


 At the end of 4 weeks, you will:
 · know the essentials and strategies for high-quality responses in 4 Speaking tasks.
·  be aware of your own weaknesses and strengths.
· have many self-study tools and a plan to continue studying on your own.
·  stop speaking like a robot with a flat voice with no emotion, using the same phrases from YouTube videos.
·  start performing at a level that is unique to you and impresses the raters.


     All the students will have their own personal pages on Microsoft OneNote. They will get detailed, written feedback on 4 responses at the end of the course.  So it is completely fine if you join only one session a week as long as the recordings are watched.
