Orbit conducts a six-week long course on any version of the TOEFL test. The length of the course is thirty hours and the sessions are facilitated an hour a day at students’ suitable timings. Students can enroll for any classes between 7AM and 7PM from Monday to Friday. The TOEFL is a standardized test that measures English proficiency of students who are non-native speakers of English, intending to study in an institution where medium of teaching and learning is English. Students who are going particularly to the USA, Canada and Australia are advised to take this test. However, TOEFL is accepted by most institutions around the world. Various banks in the capital assist students to perform an on-line registration. Visit the ETS website www.ets.org/toefl for more information about the test and to check for the test dates available in your preferred test center.
Our students have opportunity of carrying out all their practice tests in the production lab. Every Sunday, teachers organize a test for the students on the computers in the lab so that they are well- acquainted with the test and build up confidence in taking their real test.
