If you’re preparing for any EFL exam, then it’s the right time to change your mode of preparation if you really want to crack it in your first attempt. The current scenario is that you join a reputed institute that’s joined by hundreds of other students and when you enter the class, you’re part of a big herd. Therefore, the teacher, no matter how good he is, isn’t able to give proper attention to each and every student. So if you’re weak in one particular section, say speaking, then you don’t get the due attention and lag behind others. What I’m talking about is a classroom session in which each and every student is treated as an individual and all of your perfections and imperfections are considered while teaching you. So I’m talking about personal teaching. But where do you find it?
Well, you don’t have to go out and search for such an institute as its right inside your pocket. I’m talking about the latest iOS app called Zinkerz TOEFL that has been developed by Zinkerz Technologies. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires 6.0 or any later version of the OS.
Zinkerz TOEFL concentrates on all the four different parts of a teaching program i.e. speaking, listening, reading and writing. There are different tests for all of them. For example, to improve your understanding of the accent, you’re made to listen to an audio clip and after listening to the entire clip, there are some questions that you have to answer. So it not only helps you develop a better understanding for the accent but it also improves your memorizing ability.
Spoken English is one of the most difficult aspects to improve upon because there’s no particular rulebook that you can follow. You need a guide who can supervise upon your pros and cons and even the best of the friends don’t like sitting listening to your boring speeches and point out your mistakes. But with Zinkerz TOEFL, they ask you to speak on a general topic and with regular practice, you can hope to improve at an unprecedented rate. There are some other features like flash cards which are difficult words that suddenly appear on your screen. This way you can remember them easily and keep a hold on them for longer period of time.
The app is equipped with many different sets of tests which aim at your gradual improvement. So you won’t feel a sudden jerk at any point of time. It’d be a smooth ride from the start till the end. Moreover, your performance statistics help you further analyze your strengths and weaknesses.
So overall, Zinkers TOEFL has it all when it comes to preparing for EFL exams. The app is available for free in the App Store. So go and check it out today!
Pros: speak, write, read and listen; performance statistics; flash cards; gradual improvement; offline support; free.
I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
