Prezado Professor ,
Gostaria de informar que passei no TOEFL para ingresso no intercambio que desejo fazer em agosto.
Gostaria de agradecer a você pelas aulas que foram de muita ajuda para mim. Por motivos que já conversei com você tive que sair das aulas da cultura, mas continuei por minha conta os estudos para a prova. Assim que conseguir pretendo voltar as aulas para dar continuidade as aulas.
Um conselho que posso dar aos alunos que ainda vão realizar a prova é:
Estudem muito, principalmente o SPEAKING, pois por experiencia pessoal sei que é bem complicado para a maioria das pessoas.
Leiam muito e façam os exercicios de varios livros, o máximo que puderem.
E tentem manter a calma durante a prova.

Are you going to take the TOEFL?
On the moment I said to myself that I wanted to study abroad, one thing came to my mind: TOEFL!
Lots of people have their own opinion on how easy or difficult this test is, but the only way to find that out is doing it yourself. So, it doesn’t matter what others say about, on the test day you will be the one doing it.
And there is one thing I know: it’s always easier to do anything when you know exactly what you will face up to.
For this reason I decided to take a preparatory course for it, and I have no doubt it was worth it. Doing exercises I realised that if I had taken the test right away, it would have been a waste of money. I would have been caught off guard, and specially in the speaking section I would have choked a lot.
In conclusion, it was cheaper and better for my moral to spend a few months of course before the test, than failing on the first shot and realising it would have been better to take a course first.
That’s it folks,
Cheers and break the leg!
