Between all online or in person courses about TOEFL test, this EdX MOOC course by ETS is above them all. The first reason is credible; course produced by the center who run the test. The second reason is the well-provided contents. I personally really enjoyed that. In the end, there is a test within the last week of the course that submissions will be checked by ETS experts. The result may show our capability for the real test. Thanks for creating this MOOC course about TOEFL.

This is a great resource for anyone taking a TOEFL exam. The instructors go through each section of the exam in high detail, discuss all different kinds of questions one will find, share really useful tips for each question type and there's even the chance to practice speaking and writing questions within the edX course with automatic grading within 24 hours! I took the TOEFL test about a week ago and this helped me immensely. I had never taken a TOEFL test before so I knew nothing about it, and I had only a couple of weeks to prepare. I started by auditing this course in 2 days and it gave me a great overview of the entire exam! I needed only to practice some days on questions from previous exams via the ETS website and it was more than enough. 100% recommended as a first step to start preparing for TOEFL. Thank you so much!

This was a total waste of my time. They said it will help my English with TOEFL, but I spent money on the course and received only information that I could already found online. Search for the test content in google, and you will find how to mark the test. Unhelpful!

It was amazing, I got a 112/120 in the TOEFL. The techniques they teach for the test and the extra real-life practice for each section helped me a lot to surpass the score required to study a master in a top university in the US.
