TOEIC Prep Centres
Many students opt to attend live classes to help them prepare for the TOEIC exams. This is a wise idea, especially for the Speaking and Writing portions of the TOEIC. Exam preparation courses are usually offered in major cities worldwide, through specialized exam prep centres, or general ESL / EFL language schools. Both can be effective to help you prepare for your test. The most important factor of all may be the personality, experience, and qualifications of the teacher. Many other factors could also influence the quality of training you receive: the materials used, the methods followed, the management of the school, teacher-student ratio, and more.
In the current situation, given the change in the TOEIC test in some countries, it may be a good idea to see whether schools can answer questions about the new TOEIC – if not, how can you expect them to train you for something they don't know about? So do some homework yourself and shop around.Also try and attend a free class before you sign up. Experience a lesson and then make your decision. You must trust that your teacher has the knowledge and experience to help you. So make sure you and the teacher are a good match. This is a critical decision so don't be pressured into paying before you're ready. Neither should you assume that established schools have the best programs. Check out small and large schools if necessary, and choose the teacher who specializes in preparing students for the TOEIC exam, and not only in general ESL or EFL teaching. Some schools offer short, intensive workshops, in the evenings or on weekends, which can also give you a number of excellent techniques and skills to score highly on your TOEIC exam.
