After lots of hard one-on-one work, especially on the writing section, of the TOEFL test (Test of English as a Foreign Language) I am proud to announce that the results have arrived! Euclides Francisco, student of Oenology and Viticulture at the IF-Sertão, Campus Zona Rural, has scored high marks on the TOEFL test, qualifying him for international scholarships such as Ciência Sem Fronteiras (now accepting applications-click here) and Fulbright (click here to explore one Fulbright Scholarship possibility for Brazilians) .
I had the pleasure of working with Euclides to prepare for the test, which he had two weeks to study for and took on Friday, February 9 in Recife. He plans on using the scores to apply for programs in Canada and the USA. He is the first of hopefully many to score high enough to compete for International Scholarships. I look forward to the next post announcing his placement abroad!
Interested in studying abroad? Taking the TOEFL is often the first and most necessary step for almost every scholarship and abroad opportunity. For TOEFL dates and locations click here. Also, together with the fantastic Rafaela Carla, English Professor at the Zona Rural, we will soon be administering the TOEFL test here in Petrolina at the IF Rural Campus.
Stay tuned– I will be offering a preparatory TOEFL course this year for intermediate and advanced English speakers. I hope to have you in my course!
As always, feel free to drop me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org or cara.snyder@ifsertao) with questions, comments, or if you are a student looking to take the TOEFL or study abroad!
