PRINCETON, N.J., July 1, 2015 /CNW/ -- Starting this month, aspiring TOEFL® test takers are encouraged to step up and take the TOEFL Test Prep Challenge as they continue their study-abroad journey. This nine-week campaign will support test takers as they prepare for the TOEFL test by challenging them with actual test questions from past tests, offering test-taking tips, and providing them with valuable resources to improve their English skills and perform well on test day.
The TOEFL Test Prep Challenge will equip test takers with knowledge of all four sections of the test (reading, listening, speaking and writing) and will be offered on numerous social media platforms, including Facebook®, Instagram® and LinkedIn®. Each week, participants will be provided with useful test prep tips through images and short videos.
As part of the challenge, the TOEFL program will host a global Facebook Q&A live chat on July 9 at 13:00 UTC. English-language experts will be on hand to answer English language learning questions including official prep tips, how to register for the test and preparing for the study-abroad journey.
"Anyone looking for test preparation from the actual developers of the TOEFL test will benefit from the TOEFL Test Prep Challenge with its mix of lessons, practice and inspiration," said Jobert Abueva, senior director of marketing for the TOEFL program. "Upon completion of the nine-week challenge, students will find themselves better equipped come test day."
