    A recent student of mine scored 117 on the TOEFL. I used Off2Class as one of my sources.

    Excellent. I’m an EFL teacher and have been asked to teach a TOEFL class. I have no experience of the exam from before. This is a great starting point. Thanks

    Hello Chris,
    what if the student’s level is A2 and she is insisting on taking the test?

    Thank you so much for your info! I’m trying to go to the “ESL Placement Test”, but I think, this is not working 🙁
