Universities in Turkmenistan are preparing for the annual Olympiad, so Fellow Sarah Bedrouni has been working with her students to get them prepared for the competition. She partnered with her host institution, the Institute of International Relations, to purchase up-to-date TOEFL vocabulary and grammar textbooks to help the English students get ready for their part in the competition.  Participants and trainers were thrilled with the new TOEFL books and now feel more motivated to work harder to beat the other universities.

With access to more up-to-date textbooks, the students now have a better chance of doing well in the Olympiad. One student was grateful because the new books allowed him to “learn up-to-date vocabulary” making him a better competitor. Students are glad that from now on, they will have books that have been published in the last five years, as opposed to their previous materials which were published twenty years ago.
