Terra Nova is a very good school not only for TOEFL preparation but also for improving English skills in general. To obtain a good result after the course, it is important to attend all the classes because the latter are packed with many interesting facts not only about this standardized test itself but also about various sciences and arts. Discussions about the U.S. are especially interesting. You can be sure that if you do all your homework or at least most of it and you are active in class, you will definitely improve your level.
Prepare for the TOEFL with Terra Nova! The classes are taught in American English. In order to help the students evaluate their progress, the instructor will organize several TOEFL simulations at the end of the semester. I am very grateful to this school!

I found this TOEFL preparation course very interesting and useful. I enjoyed studying here at Terra Nova with other students who also were very interested in taking the TOEFL. I believe that studying in groups is more efficient and effective. Besides information from the textbooks, I learned new vocabulary from my classmates.

Nowadays it is very hard to be satisfied with the situation in our country. Some of us are real patriots, while others are not.

Whenever I am, I will never forget the opportunity that terra Nova gave me to improve my English. I am very thankful to everybody who helped me. I took the path of a successful life and taking the course was the first step. I learned a lot and about everything. The diversity of topics discussed throughout this course is phenomenal. It is a fact that this course is the best course of preparation for the TOEFL in our country, the instructor is great, and the students are as good as they should be. I recommend taking this course!

I liked the course very much. Before taking it, I felt prepared, but it was just a feeling. Now I know that I really am. For instance, note taking did not seem necessary to me, but after a lot of practice, I understood the importance of taking notes on the test. To make a long story short, Terra Nova is the best English school in Moldova. Andrei is a great teacher. Here come only good students who want to study and prepare seriously for the TOEFL.

I do not know what students are doing in other TOEFL preparation courses offered by other English schools, but I am sure that Terra Nova is the best place to prepare for the TOEFL, because Terra Nova offers a comprehensive program combining efficient TOEFL preparation and a detailed review of advanced English grammar, style, and vocabulary. Why is Terra Nova the best? I think that the secret of the school's success is the teacher. He is exceptional. He has his own methods of teaching, which are unique in the Republic of Moldova!

This course really helped me a lot and every lesson was interesting in its way. I not only improved my English skills but also learned many new things that were interesting for general knowledge and development. There were different speaking, reading, writing, and listening activities that helped me understand the personal level of English and determine the weaknesses that needed attention. The lessons were very different from classes in school. The atmosphere is very friendly, the material is interesting, and everyone is allowed to express his/her point of view and to have fun. My group was very good, and it was nice to do different activities together, such as debates, for example. I liked the course very much and I believe that it is helpful for everybody who wants to prepare for the TOEFL and to improve his/her English skills in general. In addition, I believe that Terra Nova is one of the best English schools in Chisinau.

Terra Nova is a place where a person meets a perfect environment for improving his or her English, prepares for taking an important step in life, and is acquainted with intelligent and ambitious people. The instructor's knowledge is very often astonishing. By attending the TOEFL preparation course here, I improved my English, got a very good TOEFL score, and acquired some interesting information about the U.S. and the world, because Andrei was always willing to share his knowledge and experience of living and studying abroad. Coming here was one of the best choices I have ever made.

Gleb Miron

In my opinion, Terra Nova has excellent, very useful classes for the following three reasons.
First, I improved my level of English because I learned a lot of new vocabulary, grammar rules, and I had an opportunity to discuss different topics in English linked to sciences or everyday life.
Second, the course is full of activities that help prepare for the TOEFL. I learned how to write good essays and how to prepare presentations. During the course, there were TOEFL simulations, which helped me a lot to understand the structure and the requirements of the test.
Finally, the teacher is a very interesting and friendly person. He is always ready to share his knowledge and wisdom and to give a piece of advice.
To sum up, I consider that the time spent on this course was one of the most productive periods of my life. I hope that in the future more students will attend this TOEFL preparation center in order to become more intelligent, tolerant, and well educated, because only such people can build a free and democratic society we all want to live in.
Thank you, Andrei!

Andrei's class is what you really need whether you are going to pass the TOEFL with a high score or just polish up your English skills. Moreover, you will have a perfect opportunity to expand your knowledge of sciences and arts, actually to shed light on what an average intelligent person should know. Classes are intense, and require much study at home as well. You will be able to speak fluently and correctly, with one condition of course - you should be diligent. Besides, you may grasp the idea of contribution, which will definitely make you a little bit happier!

Probably the best thing that I managed to achieve with Andrei's help is self-confidence in reading difficult scientific (and not only) passages and listening to academic lectures delivered by American speakers. I strongly believe that my experience at Terra Nova has already facilitated my professional growth. In addition, I undoubtedly appreciated a detailed review of grammar (100 percent useful), vocabulary (you'll get your second wind after the 10th page, be sure), and Andrei's style in general. Act fast! Do not lose your time! It is never too early to start improving your English!

Dear prospective students! I advice you to attend the TOEFL preparation course taught at Terra Nova even if you are not planning to pass the test. You will learn a lot of grammar that you have not learned in school or university. The classes are full of different activities, e.g., learning grammar and vocabulary, reading, listening, speaking, writing essays, doing debates, etc. This course cannot even be compared with any other TOEFL preparation course taught in Chisinau because the instructor gives you a lot of information from different fields.

Dear prospective students!
If you have already decided to take the TOEFL, Terra Nova is the best choice for you in Chisinau. The TOEFL preparation course will provide you with all the information that you need to succeed on the TOEFL. However, you should study at home and do all your homework. In this way, you will definitely improve your speaking, writing, reading, and listening skills. Besides, the classes are full of interesting information about geography, biology, chemistry, physics, history, etc. I also enriched my vocabulary and grammar. I am now aware of all the ins and outs of the TOEFL and I feel confident that I will be able to get a good score on the test. After three TOEFL simulations administered by the instructor at the end of the semester, I know what score I can get. I would like to advise you to be as active in class as you can. It is crucial that you be active, because it is the only way to acquire the knowledge that you need. I admit that I could have done things better and could have studied harder. I hope that I have provided enough reasons for you to decide to prepare for the TOEFL with Terra Nova!

The TOEFL preparation course really inspired me to learn English more seriously. I used to have some free time, but I did not use it properly. After I started to attend the course, the amount of my homework greatly increased. I can say the same about my interest to the language itself. Well, chatting with Americans via Skype is also useful, but taking a course is something different. I improved not only my speaking skills, but also my knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing. I am sure that more and more people will take Andrei's course every year.

Terra Nova is a great place to improve your English skills and to learn about American values. It offers the best TOEFL preparation course in Moldova with the best instructor. I believe that such a high quality of teaching should be provided in all Moldovan schools. I hope that in the near future an English school like Terra Nova will appear in my hometown, Calarasi, which is 50 km away from Chisinau. In this way, teenagers living in my town will not need to spend money on transportation in order to come to Chisinau to study.
