Students who demonstrate English proficiency at Level 5 or above can prepare to take the internet-based TOEFL, a requirement for entrance into most American colleges or universities. Students will learn and practice academic vocabulary, writing effective academic essays, communicating opinions and summarizing academic passages in clear, logical spoken English as well as developing their reading and listening skills in order to comprehend academic textbooks and lectures.
TOEFL students are given complete practice examinations which replicate the actual exam. This practice exam, along with quizzes and assignments, is an indicator of the student’s progress in the course. Generally a student should be able to prepare for the TOEFL exam and reach the target score within twelve months.

Open to students at Level 4 or above, the TOEIC class prepares students to reach their target scores on the TOEIC exam, which can be taken monthly at Eurocentres San Diego. Designed to give students maximum exposure to language skills and drills that will help them become more confident and competent test-takers, this course focuses on the two general areas—listening and reading—that are evaluated on the exam.
The class is divided into four equal parts: an introduction to business and professional vocabulary; reading comprehension focused on such genres as business letters, memos, newspaper articles, advertisements, and notices; listening comprehension focused on the four specific areas of the TOEIC exam; intense grammar review that focuses on the types of English structures most frequently found on the TOEIC exam.
This is the core of the student’s program. The class instructor carefully plans a balanced, fully integrated, varied program based on the student’s learning needs. Six lessons per week are taught by a second teacher, who liaises closely with the main instructor in implementing the weekly plan. Each Friday during the review lesson students have the opportunity to look back over the week and make suggestions for the following week. This approach ensures a goal-oriented learning program for both short-term and long-term students.

This course, which may be offered on campus or on site, is designed for students at all levels who desire to improve their English proficiency for the workplace. Although not a tutorial, the class will focus on the English vocabulary and skills that specific groups of workers need to advance in their profession. Work-related vocabulary, fundamental grammar, business and professional writing, and work-themed listening and reading exercises will be the focus of this course.
Workplace English is designed more for local students who have immigrant status, and thus it may not offer enough hours per week to satisfy the requirements for international students on an F-1 visa. International students expressing a desire to take this course may receive written permission from the school to enroll in Workplace English if it does not interfere with their current English program and if there is available space in an existing class.
