EPOP stundents sit the TOEFL ITP exam
We at Thabyay Education Network would like to express our gratitude to those who have supported our Exam Preparation Outreach Program's (EPOP's) project, 'Help 200 students from Burma study for university' on GlobalGiving.
Year 2014 started in a very dynamical way. In March, we launched a new semester with 189 students from Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia providing online academic English and exam preparation services to help civil society activists gain qualifications in order to support their work and pursue further studies.
Based on the progress of the students, EPOP had the chance to organize a Diagnostic Test for more than 100 students in order to track their development and to provide TOEFL ITP exam for students who reached their target scores. Despite the fact that we were in the middle of the semester, so far 13 talented EPOP students got selected to sit the TOEFL ITP exam in order to apply for scholarship in universities abroad, like it happened with 18 EPOP students in 2013.
Students are busy now with the weekly assignments focusing on academic reading, writing, and listening skills. They will get feedback on a previous essay submission and submit a forum assignment.
On behalf of our students and the project team, I would like to thank everyone who supports us.
If you have any questions about the project, or about our work, please do get in touch with EPOP.
With our best wishes,
