Who wouldn´t want to live in Philadelphia? It´s famous for its food such as cheesesteaks, hoagies and soft pretzels; its home to the iconic Liberty Bell; it oozes art and culture; and it encompasses Fairmount Park, the largest landscaped park in the world. Well Maria did live in Philadelphia, in a neighbourhood close to the famous Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Cultural and educational buildings such as the Franklin Institute, the Museum of Art, the Free Library of Philadelphia and the Academy of Natural Sciences, lined the street. But there was only one building that Maria was interested in – the Moore College of Art and Design. She was desperate to get a place there; she dreamed of becoming a designer amongst the elite artists and designers who had graduated from the college.

One of the requirements of this esteemed establishment is to pass the TOEFL exam, the most widely recognized test in the world of the English language. This required a certain level of English skills which Maria wasn´t sure she possessed. She couldn´t let this stand in the way of her dreams so sought the advice of her friends and enrolled in some private tuition lessons to coach her on her English language proficiency.

These highly recommended English courses in Philadelphia allowed Maria to practice everything that she needed to be able to pass the academic test as the lessons were designed specifically with TOEFL in mind. With the added reassurance of a high score possibility due to the structure of the course content, Maria´s confidence in her linguistic ability increased and she felt ready to sit her TOEFL exam.

Now a fully-fledged student at Moore College of Art and Design, Maria is fulfilling her ambitions by training as a designer and is proud to be part of such a renowned educational institution. Her extra English language courses have allowed her to reach her creative potential and now she is truly living the dream in Philadelphia!
