As of September our private courses will be taught face to face at our Kickstart School location in The Hague.
We also have a more lenient opt-out policy and you will get the remainder of the course fees reimbursed if you get ill with Covid.
In order to keep everybody safe, do not come to our school if you have any symptoms or have had a chance of exposure to Covid.
Do you need to take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) Exam? Then Kickstart School’s TOEFL Preparation Course will provide the intensive exam training to prepare you for the exam. The TOEFL IBT* exam is a widely-recognised and respected English language test which provides official certification of a student’s English language level for study and employment purposes. This certification is valid for two years.
TOEFL exam preparation is offered as a private course. It familiarises students with the formats and procedures of the TOEFL test, introducing effective test-taking strategies for all four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing) so that students feel prepared and confident to take the test under challenging exam conditions. The teacher also helps you develop strategies for improvement, making you aware of your strengths and improve upon your weaknesses.
* IBT: internet-based test
