Enrique has completed his university studies and his physical therapy residency and is now looking for a job in the United States. However, he has hit a snag. Before getting his license to work in the US as a physical therapist, he must pass the TOEFL iBT, including scoring 26/30 and 24/30 on the speaking and writing sections.
Therefore, Enrique is now taking TOEFL lessons so he can improve his academic speaking and writing proficiencies. Each week he studies independent and integrated speaking and writing lessons. Then, each week he completes at least 5 speaking practice tests and 3 writing practice tests after which he gets feedback from a TOEFL iBT specialist who listens to, reads, and evaluates his responses and makes recommendations for how he can score higher.
Currently, Enrique is scoring 20 pts. on the speaking and 22 pts. on the writing practice tests, so he still needs to practice for a few more weeks before he reaches his goal. Nevertheless, he is improving, and it will not be long before Enrique is ready to pass the TOEFL iBT so he can get his license to practice as a physical therapist in the United States.
