How do your clients know when they might be ready to take their TOEFL® test?  They can get the experience of taking the real TOEFL iBT® test with TOEFL® Practice Online. All TOEFL Practice Online tests use authentic past test questions from ETS, makers of the TOEFL test.

Is there anything you can do when the odds seem to be hugely stacked against your client?

When it looks like there’s practically no possibility of getting a positive outcome?

A case that was handed down by the Federal Court yesterday, 7 December, Tesic v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection (2016) FCA 1465 shows that what may appear to be impossible on the face of a situation can actually (at least some times!) be overcome. And that if you never give up, turn over every stone, and put every relevant document under the microscope, then yep, you may have a shot at pulling off what may seem like a miracle.
