TOEFL Workshop for English Language InstructorsAs one of the most widely accepted English-language assessment across world, the TOEFL program will now be offering a series of free development workshops for the English language teachers. The day long workshops will be conducted in Hyderabad and Mumbai, and they have been organised by ETS, the administrators to the TOEFL.

The purpose of the exercise, named ’Propell Workshops’, is to help instructors understand the skills that students need to develop so they can successfully communicate in English-speaking academic settings, such as those located in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and, increasingly, in other non-English speaking countries where English is used as a medium of instruction.

Scheduled for September 7 and 8 in Hyderabad at the Hotel Taj Tristar and on October 6 in Mumbai at Grand Sarovar Premiere Hotel, the workshops will be conducted from 9.30 am to 5 pm.

The program itinerary will include an overview of the TOEFL iBT test, a detailed review of scoring guidelines for the writing and speaking sections of the test, practice in scoring sample test-taker and discussions on practical applications to guide classroom instruction. Led by an ETS-approved trainer, the workshops provide educators a platform to discuss successes and challenges in advancing English-language skills for students. Also, teachers will receive a Propell workshop kit that will guide them through stimulating sessions on teaching techniques and activities.
