With the TOEFL test, you only need to take one English-language assessment if you want to study in Australia, the U.K., Canada, or the U.S., as it is accepted by nearly every higher education institution. Plus, the TOEFL test can be completed in one day.
The TOEFL iBT ® test is divided into four sections: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.
Here are some useful tips to help you do your best:
Learn more about a favourite topic and share what you have learnt with a friend
Listen to Podcasts, recorded lectures, and read articles on your favourite travel destination. Determine the main idea, major points and supporting ideas being presented. Present what you learnt to a friend or family member.
Find a speaking partner, preferably a native English speaker or try an online video chat.
The more occasions you have to speak English, the more familiar and comfortable you will become.
Create your own vocabulary cards and carry them wherever you go. It’s a great way to practise and pass the time! Pull them out while travelling and use the time well.
Summarise and paraphrase reading passages. Use outlines to assist in organising your ideas. Practice reading to improve your comprehension. Become familiar with reading and answering questions on a computer screen as this is the format used for the TOEFL iBT test.
Read a short article from a newspaper or magazine aloud. Give a one-minute oral summary of the article. Express your opinion regarding the article. Do you agree or disagree with the content presented? If there is a problem discussed, outline a solution. Practise pronunciation. Speak slowly, annunciating every syllable.
Watch your favourite television show. Write a summary of the episode. Explain the television programme, the way it made you feel, and how it was similar or different from past episodes. Have a family member read your essay.
