托福 (TOEFL iBT) 講練實戰概念強化班

TOEFL Intensive Prep Course

我們將學習過程濃縮,提供您需要的資源以便於掌握整體測驗方向。首先,讓學生熟悉托福(TOEFL)考試形式,透過最好的方法訓練學生回答問題的策略、技巧,並期待達到ETS 頂標水準。舉例來說,口試時的語調、態度會對分數造成影響,這個部份我們也會指導學生如何做調整。

另外,我們也提供托福(TOEFL)試題模擬測驗, 驗收學習成效並訓練其臨場感。

我們整體課程內容分為四個部分,分別為:閱讀、寫作、聽力、口說,每部份各佔30分,總分為120分,在課程結束時,學生將獲得實用的寫作技巧、豐富的英語詞彙量及解讀學術課本的能力。

閱讀

指導老師將提供學生有趣、有挑戰性的閱讀材料,訓練學生能夠大聲、流暢的念出文章,並在課程中分析、討論學生英語閱讀的方法,使其獲得純熟的英語閱讀能力及技巧。

托福(TOEFL)所涵蓋的內容相當廣泛,閱讀主題囊括心理學、哲學、科學、技術、環境保護、當前全球事件、歷史及人類學等領域。所有的閱讀教材我們將改編自托福(TOEFL)官方所提供的模擬試題及教材。

口說

對於許多學習英語的人而言,在有限的時間內,要即時說出與符合測驗內容與邏輯的部分是比較困難的。我們將深入探討問題起因與脈絡,透過公開講演,來訓練學生口說技能、並加強辯論的能力。藉由以上方法,使學生能夠有效率且清楚的進行英語會話。學生的各項學習狀況都將在課程中被記錄下來。

除了上述所說,教學內容也將涵蓋日常實用字彙及俚語,教師也將視情況作彈性調整,提供多元化的教學內容,希冀激盪出創意與深刻的見解。

寫作

寫作教材將採用ETS官方所公佈教材: Magoosh 和 Notefull來作改編,課程將訓練學生如何構思紮實的寫作結構及精確的字彙。課堂間及課後都會提供寫作試題讓學生練習。課後練習是以電子郵件的方式來遞交,以便指導老師能迅速更新學生學習狀況。寫作課程結束時,學生將會獲得有效益並能拿到高分的寫作技巧。

聽力

雖然聽力測驗對大部分的學生來說較為容易,但仍然不容忽視。有效率的答題策略能獲得高分,所以我們訓練學生如何筆記題目,並立即組織、統整與分析,以便迅速精準地作答。

字彙

每堂課將教授常見字彙,並確實使學生溫故知新。我們也將給予學生高效率的學習單字策略。例如:先探討單字的字源、基本意與延伸意,再擴充其他相似字及相反詞;將單字分為前後兩個部分,劃分音節的字彙記憶法,教師都將在課堂中提及。透過新型態單字學習模式,能使學生更容易記住英文字彙,也能幫助他們掌握單字更深的義含。字彙是言語溝通上的基本工具,豐富的字彙庫能使我們能正確的判斷托福(TOEFL)所要測驗的內容,並贏得高分。

Tackle the TOEFL iBT® with confidence in our TOEFL prep course

The TOEFL exam is a challenging and demanding test, and can be especially daunting for English as second language learners. Our goal is to support and lead you along the way to earning your dream TOEFL score. By studying with us, we can ensure that you will become confident in earning top scores on these tough questions.

We have simplified the process, giving you the resources you need to master the test. We start by familiarizing students on the format and pattern of the TOEFL. We then train students on the best methods to prepare, explain how to deliver answers that ETS awards top scores to, provide tips on the best question answering strategies, tricks, methodologies, and notetaking approaches, and explain what to be aware of during the exam, such as how intonation during the speaking section affects your score. Students will also take official ETS practice tests and have them evaluated. At the end of the program, students will gain effective writing skills, an extensive bank of vocabulary, and requisite analytical skills needed to interpret academic texts, which are necessary to master all four sections of the test, which include reading, writing, listening, and speaking sections that amount to a total of 120 points.

Reading:

The instructor will provide students with interesting, albeit challenging passages that will be read aloud, critically analyzed, and discussed in class. Since general knowledge is essential for scoring high on the TOEFL, a wide range of reading topics will be covered, including, but not limited to the fields of psychology, philosophy, science, technology, environmental protection, current global events, history, anthropology, political affairs, etc. All reading material will be adapted from official ETS practice tests and official textbook guides.

Speaking:

For many English language learners, the speaking section of the test is the hardest part in that speaking requires coherency, improvisation, and logical thought forming skills while being pressured under a time limit. We will enable students to speak effectively and articulately by incorporating thought-provoking, open-ended questions, meant to hone conversational skills that stimulate open discussion; a skill that is needed for the recorded speaking section of the test. Open discussion will comprise the bulk of the speaking session, which will serve to incite meaningful and substantive dialogue that will be contingent upon the instructor to lead. In addition, common expressions, phrases, and idioms that are interesting, colloquial, and conversationally practical will also be covered.

Writing:

Writing material and resources will be adapted from ETS, Magoosh, and Notefull. Students will be practicing in-class writing along with take-home writing assignments. Take-home assignments will be electronically submitted to the instructor, which will be evaluated with instant feedback being provided to students. Students will be trained to effectively brainstorm, take meaningful notes, design a cohesive writing structure, and succinctly organize words into meaningful sentences. By the end of the program, students will be expected to demonstrate effective college-level writing skills to score high on the writing section of the test.

Listening:

Although the listening section of the test is easier for most students, it is not to be overlooked. For this section, effective notetaking strategies can lead to a perfect score, so students will be trained to tactically write down and organize what they hear into a format that can be used to quickly identify correct answers. 

Vocabulary:

A plethora of frequently tested TOEFL vocabulary words will be taught in each lesson and instilled into students’ long-term memory. Students will be introduced to a highly effective etymological strategy of learning new words, in which they dissect words into prefixes, suffixes, and roots, learn their underlying meaning, then expand on other words that contain the same or similar roots. Collocation context strategies, syllable segmentation strategies, and mnemonics will also be implemented into the curriculum. This comprehensive approach of learning new vocabulary enables students to not only easily remember words that they have learned, but to help them intuitively recognize the meaning of words they have never been exposed to. Words are the tools of thought and an extensive bank of vocabulary is imperative to accurately interpret passages on the TOEFL iBT, enabling students to zero in on the correct answer choices.

想增加英文字彙量嗎?
Andrew 老師有個想推薦給大家的免費app資源"Ankidroid",能有趣並快速地學習英文單字。我們能用此APP或電腦程式來做專屬自己的電子字卡,隨時用電子產品來線上同步學習。這個程式用spaced-repetition 來讓我們有效記憶字彙或英文考題。

app首先會開始考你新字卡,陌生的字彙會在短時間重複考你,而熟練的會過一段時間再提醒你。同一張字卡接觸越多次,就越能加深印象。如果有興趣,想了解基本操作,建議可以先看看這影片 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVmpEPFYbss

想更了解Anki使用的'spaced-repetition' (間隔複習)系統可以參考這個影片 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdE0cvjixFs

每日英文習慣用語:

'Back to the drawing board' 的意思是從頭開始. A drawing board 是中文的製圖版. 所以他的字面意思是回到製圖板,重新再畫一次。

Example: My boss is so absurd. We have been working months on this product. And now that he doesn't like the design we had originally agreed upon, we need to go back to the drawing board. Gosh!

例子:我的老闆真不理性。我們已經花好幾個月的時間在這個商品上。就只因為老闆不喜歡我們原本同意的設計,我們要從頭做到尾。真要命啊!

Hank 在三年前來到我們這裡學習,孩子對國中的制式課程缺乏興趣,但是在音樂及畫圖創作上有驚人的表現,我們不斷的鼓勵他不但不要放棄學習也要在自己的夢想上加力,謝謝Hank媽媽寫的心得

我們鼓勵每個莘莘學子都要有不放棄的精神
加油💪💪💪💪💪💪

💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

Hank從小就不精於學業,因希望他走正常升學管道,讀高中後攻讀大學,於是就送他去伯大尼。

雖然每科都補卻是吃力,不只是學業方面壓力大,連人際也一概受影響,但後來聽了伯大尼的老師建議。孩子的天空不一定要靠學業來闖,一定要有一技之長,鼓勵孩子向上,也鼓勵家長為孩子轉換跑道。

經過一番修正後,現在的 Hank 讀了五專,選了自己深愛的科系,不只充滿了自信,甚至名列前茅。

如同 伯大尼的教育理念

~父母放手,生命自會找到出口~

只要讓孩有自信,孩子就會攀高走遠,人生就充滿新意義

雖然應該是商業化的補習班,伯大尼卻跟其他的機構不一樣,它看到孩子真正的價值,反到是像教育家,是一個為孩子著想的好地方,本人大力推薦
~Hank 媽媽
