Participant Feedback

"The TOEFL Preparation Course prepared me completely, and I knew what to expect. Without it, I wouldn't have passed the test."
Fabian Habermaaß (MBA)

"Thanks to the TOEFL Preparation Course, I knew exactly what the real test would be like. I was well prepared for the various test sections and was able to achieve an above average score. Without the course, the test would probably have been significantly more difficult."
Stefan Weber (MBA)

"The Prep Course gave an excellent idea of what to watch for on the TOEFL test. Through tips and explanations of the various excercises as well as numerous practice problems, I knew exactly what to expect. I was able to work specifically on my weaknesses and go into the test fully prepared. I can recommend the Prep Course 100%."
