TOEFL Preparation

Would you like to improve your TOEFL score? We can help you reach your goal faster!

Take the TOEFL Preparation virtual or in-person class to improve your TOEFL scores quickly and start your academic career at a higher level. Get feedback on your strengths and weaknesses from highly qualified faculty.

Two Class Options to Build Your Skills: 

OPTION 1: Intensive TOEFL Prep class (taught virtually on Zoom): 20 hours of instruction per week for 4 weeks (lectures, online materials, and assignments, group projects, one-on-one interaction with faculty)

OPTION 2: Regular TOEFL Prep class (taught virtually on Zoom and/or in-person when the campus reopens) taken before or after regular class hours: 5 hours a week for the entire term.

Who is it for?

OPTION 1: Intensive TOEFL Prep class: For students who lack TOEFL scores to enter Academic Preparation (50 - 60) or academic classes (61 or higher). Students can join classes from their home country before coming to Green River College.

OPTION 2: Regular TOEFL Prep class: For students who want to boost their TOEFL scores for transfer purposes.

Both classes are offered every term. Additional sessions in July or August can be offered by request so that students have enough time to plan for fall term.

“After studying English (IEP) at Green River for a year, I then studied another 2 years in the academic program. In 2013, I transferred to UC Berkeley. I am now pursuing further education at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, the #1 School of veterinary medicine in the world. I cannot describe how much I appreciate Green River College. I would not have been able to make it this far without my time at GRC.”
