score improvement

Post by iain » Thu Apr 23, 2009 6:42 am

As I have very limited experience with TOEFL I need to pick some more informed brains if I can.
I am about to become involved in a language training programme for (primarily) Asian students enrolling on College courses in the US. In order to be admiited they need a minimum score of 500 on the paper-based test.
The language training programme sets a minimum score of 350 for acceptance, so my query is, what is a realistic time-frame for a score improvememt of 350 to 500? The langauge training programme will be fairly intensive - probably 25 classroom hours per week.
I realise that there will be lots of variables but am looking for a reasonable guidline that is likley to more often right than wrong.

Thanks for any contributions.
