As the demand for highly skilled English-language professionals increases throughout India, ETS will host a series of professional development workshops for teachers offering an in-depth look at the TOEFL iBT® test, the most widely accepted English-language assessment.

The Propell® workshops will provide an extensive review of the TOEFL test while offering educators a platform to discuss successes and challenges in advancing English-language skills for students. Led by an ETS-approved trainer, and based on the integrated-skills approach, the workshops will include:

  • a comprehensive overview of the TOEFL iBT test
  • a detailed review of the scoring guidelines for the Writing and Speaking sections of the TOEFL iBT test
  • practice in scoring sample test-taker responses
  • an engaging discussion on practical applications to guide classroom instruction

"For the third consecutive year, the Propell workshops offer English-language teachers throughout India an in-depth look at the TOEFL test and an opportunity to exchange best practices that are effective in the classroom," commented Teresa Sanchez-Lazer, Executive Director of the TOEFL Program. "The workshops offer a venue for English-language professionals to develop an ongoing community of learners to strengthen teaching practices throughout India."

Registration for each workshop will begin at 9:15 a.m. The sessions will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 6:00 p.m. More information regarding the upcoming Propell workshops, including registration, can be obtained by emailing ets@studyplaces.com.
