Students all over the world are preparing for the TOEFL so that they can enter universities. Others need to get high TOEFL scores to meet requirements for jobs in the healthcare profession: pharmacists, nurses, physical therapists, doctors, and dentists.
On a weekly basis, I get e-mails from many students who want to improve their academic English so that they can also get high TOEFL scores.
