TOEFL Tips&Tricks - A Course in Belgrade

With the help of the US Embassy in Belgrade, Serbia, American Corner Belgrade is organizing a new round of TOEFL advisory classes that will begin on January 23 2016 and will last 5 classes.

This course will be held by an English language teacher - Igor ZagrańĎanin.

The course is a workshop rather than a typical course, for those in the final stage of preparation for the TOEFL test.

If you are interested in applying, all you need to do is send a short letter of motivation in English to this email, and it should include:

- Your name and surname

- Why are you taking the test

- When are you taking the test or when do you plan to take it

The advantage will be given to those who have registered for the TOEFL exam.
