Listening, Grammar, Reading, Writing: Preparing Foreign Students for English and the TOEFL.
Munoz, Mary Ellen; Pyle, Michael A.
The Santa Fe Community College (Gainesville, Florida) offers courses to prepare students for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The two classes--one intermediate and one advanced--meet three times a week for three hours each session. Grammar explanations are presented during the first two classes each week, and students are offered opportunities to work out exercises and to ask questions. The teaching method consists of the presentation of a formula, which the students tend to remember more readily than a long explanation, followed by an explanation, various examples, and a study sheet of at least 20 examples related to the problem area. Students correct their own papers and score them. Emphasis is given to grammar, listening, vocabulary, and comprehension. At the conclusion of the class an actual TOEFL is simulated during which the different sections of the test are rigidly timed, answer sheets are provided, and the TOEFL format is used. (HOD)
