Sterile Processing Technician
Cornerstone has exceeded my expectations. The SPT course was so much more than just going through the motions. Lab time was structured in such a way to give me time to think. The class was structured to fit my learning style which is "learn by example". I would recommend this institution to anyone. LOOK NO FURTHER!
TOEFL Prep & Review
Cornerstone's TOEFL Review class is an intensive preparation course designed to significantly improve students' TOEFL scores. During the course, students take a practice paper and online examination. This course is limited to students with an advanced level of English, the equivalent to 11th grade or above.
The TOEFL® Test (Test of English as a Foreign Language™) measures the ability of nonnative speakers of English to use and understand English as it is spoken, written, and heard in college and university settings.
TOEFL preparatory programs are also offered for prospective foreign students, both academic(for university admission requirements) and professional program(for working visa requirements). The TOEFL test is offered in different formats depending on a test taker's location.
The TOEFL® iBT
The TOEFL® Internet-based test (iBT) tests all four language skills that are important for effective communication: reading. listening, speaking, and writing. The test helps students demonstrate that they have the English skills needed for success. The TOEFL iBT also emphasizes integrated skills and provides better information to institutions about students' ability to communicate in an academic setting and their readiness for academic coursework.
Why Take the TOEFL Test?
Most people take the TOEFL test as a prerequisite for admission into colleges and universities where English is used or required. In addition, many employers, government, licensing, and certification agencies and exchange and scholarship programs use TOEFL scores to evaluate the English proficiency of people for whom English is not their native language.
Who Should Take the TOEFL Test?
Nonnative English speakers at the 11th-grade level or above should take the TOEFL test to provide evidence of their English proficiency before beginning academic work. The test content is considered too difficult for students below 11th grade.
Many institutions report that they frequently do not require TOEFL test scores of certain kinds of international applicants. These include:
- nonnative speakers who hold degrees or diplomas from postsecondary
