#1
Monday, March 16, 2009: English-language learners looking to refine their skills before taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), have a new resource — TOEFL TV, available now on YouTube (www.youtube.com/TOEFLtv). The TOEFL test is the most widely accepted, English-language assessment in the world, recognized by more than 6,000 colleges and universities in over 130 countries.

ETS officials announced the launch of TOEFL TV and indicated it was the official TOEFL channel on YouTube. The channel features user-generated videos created by the TOEFL TV team and other YouTube users. These include videos by teachers and students giving tips for improving English-language skills, videos by universities and other institutions that accept TOEFL scores about why they use the test, and videos by students about how they prepared for the test.

“Millions of people worldwide are learning English to achieve their academic and career goals,” says Philip Tabbiner, senior vice president, global division, ETS. “TOEFL TV is one way to help bring them together in an online community to help them achieve those goals.”

Registered YouTube users can add videos to the channel by adding them to a Group, where they will be reviewed and approved by ETS before posting. Teachers who are attending the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) conference in Denver on March 26-28 can record their tip at the TOEFL TV studio in the conference exhibit hall.

“One of the best ways to learn English is to interact with other English speakers, and YouTube allows students to do that through video,” says Gena Netten, TOEFL Brand Manager and former ESL Teacher. “Not only will nonnative English speakers be getting tips about how to improve their English, they will also be able to make their own videos to practice.”

“Of course we want these videos to be fun and helpful for students to view,” Netten adds. “And we also believe that teachers can incorporate these videos into their lessons as teaching tools.”
