If you disregard that the premises were not the best and there was renovation, the school was quite OK. The location was right in the heart of Hollywood, in the middle of Walk of Fame. The teachers were really good and funny, and had a lot of knowledge on various topics. They are great to let the students talk and they are also good at finding interesting subjects that students also help to influence.

The TOEFL (iBT) Preparation Programme prepares students for all four sections of the TOEFL (iBT) exam.
The programme provides effective test strategies for all of the questions on the reading and listening sections of the exam. Students also practice how to read quickly and effectively, and they learn how to take notes efficiently to succeed on the listening section. All six speaking tasks are practiced extensively in class and recorded. The instructor listens to student speaking samples and provides advice for improving word choice, speaking style, and organizational structure. 

Unlike programmes offered at other schools, students practice writing for the exam by doing one essay per week in class, and they receive scores and comments from the instructor. The instructor corrects and marks essays for misspellings, grammar mistakes, and organization to accelerate progress in writing by the instructor to assist them in their development. In order to fully prepare students for the conditions and pressure of the examination, students receive partial reading and listening practice tests every Friday, and receive a full practice test in week five and week eleven of the programme. Practice tests are reviewed and scored in class. Full practice tests are scored by the instructor with comments and suggestions.
