Why Traditional TOEFL Preparation Courses May Be A Bad Idea

Part 1 – “The Problem”


Traditional TOEFL Preparation Courses May Be A Waste Of Your Time And Money


Language School Administration Meeting - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!


I‘m sure that this post won’t win me any new friends in the “traditional” language instruction community, but frankly speaking, I don’t give a damn.

The reasons that make taking TOEFL preparation courses at a “traditional” language school a POTENTIALLY bad idea, are some of the same reasons that make taking ANY course at a “traditional” schoolPOTENTIAL waste of your money – and, consequently, are the main reasons for me leaving that world of “instruction” behind.


Be Advised

I do not deny that some traditional instruction methods and text-books are excellent for many people.  And that is great… for them.  (Those people know who they are, and probably do not make up a huge percentage of GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! readers.)

But for those who struggle in traditional class-room settings, or who become frustrated by the extreme differences in the levels of each individual in the class (which either slows the class down or leaves others behind), the traditional class-room setting – along with the text-books and teaching methods – definitely leave much to be desired.  If you are – or think you may be – one of those people, read on…  This message if for you! :)


SO WHY ARE THEY A “BAD” IDEA?
