    Hello sir,
    I’m Dinesh, from India. I’m about to take toefl test in a couple of days. I gave my everything & worked really very hard. But the thing is, I’m scared because I can’t afford to take the test again. I need to score 85+ in my first attempt itself.
    I think your words will be helpful for me to score high.

      Dinesh,

      Here are my video comments to you:

      Here are some tips from a TOEFL student who scored 109/120:

      Ok, so here are some suggestions for those of you trying to get a good score at the TOEFL iBT. This might be quite long so i would like to apologize in advance.

      I’m 23 years old, i’m from Brazil and i currently live in its capital city, Brasília. I’ve just graduated in International Relations (International Studies in some countries) and i’m aiming for an MBA in International Business and/or Foreign Trade.

      The most important thing in my opinion is to be in contact with the English language on a daily basis, especially through newspapers and magazines. I’ve been studying English for quite a while now but nothing helped me as much as reading books, articles, news and texts by myself. Get a good dictionary to improve your vocabulary. If you manage to do that on a daily basis, 6 months prior to your TOEFL test should be enough. So, let’s move to the test itself:

      In the first half of the test you’ll have to report a bunch of information and specific details. So even if you’re able to understand everything you also need to memorize lots of stuff. So make good use of your notes, especially for the Listening Section.

      READING SECTION: Use your notes and try to summarize each paragraph of the passage in 4 or 5 words at most. That will be important for you to remember the main ideas of each paragraph and it should make it easier if you want to find any specific information. You’ll lose too much time trying to read everything again, so try to create some sort of “map” or reference. Again, here the notes will have to be brief because the clock will be ticking for you. Here’s an example; if the passage is about, say Leonardo daVinci, do something like this:
      Paragraph 1 > Leonardo, birthplace, childhood
      Paragraph 2 > First paintings, influences
      Paragraph 3 > Most famous painting Mona Lisa
      Paragraph 4 > Final years, legacy

      LISTENING SECTION: The key here is to make good use of you notes. Try writing down as much information as you can while the conversation is going on, but be careful. Try to pick the overall ideas from what you’re hearing. Also, some parts are a dead giveaway of what the questions will be like. So don’t forget to note things like:
      1 > The person’s own opinion about a certain topic
      2 > The order in which events unfold (sometimes it could be scrambled)
      3 > Detailed information or description of a certain program or object
      4 > Comparing or contrasting two or more things
      Remember, these small details are contained within the most important questions, the ones worth 2 or 3 points!

      10 minute brake (Take a chocolate bar with you, it helps a lot lol)

      There’s something very important about the following sections: Be aware that in some cases you’re asked to deliver your own opinion and sometimes you’ll have to report what you’ve heard or read. So read the instructions carefully and do as requested. Also, avoid at all costs repeating “like this… like that”, “things”, “stuff”. Get a good understanding of transitions and improve your vocabulary. You must realize that sometimes it is better to get organized and have some sort of plan than speak with a perfect accent or write every word correctly. Practice here is fundamental. Remember, in the second half of the test you’ll be asked to deliver and to create content rather than simply “understand” what is presented to you.

      SPEAKING SECTION: To improve your pronunciation and accent try watching american movies or news channels (those helped me a lot) and pay attention to the way americans (or british, whatever) speak. A great and funny example is “Internet”. While most people will say ‘inTERnet’ most americans will say ‘inNERnet’. Things like that. But the most important thing for me here is; try to come up with a “stock”, basic answer. Something pre-conceived or previously rehearsed. If you’re asked what is your favorite book try something like this:
      Introduction > My favorite book is _______ for 3 main reasons.
      1st reason > It was the first book i ever read and it got me interested in literature.
      2nd reason > I did a school project about it and i got a good score out of it.
      3rd reason > I personally met the author and he was very polite.
      Closure > For those reasons i would say that ______ is my favorite book.
      Use your notes to plan and try to structure your response. Practice a few times before the test and memorize some transitions such as “although”, “therefore”, “however”, “moreover” and use some uncommon words for vocabulary.

      WRITING SECTION: Basically the same thing as the previous section. Try to organize your responses in a certain pattern, separating very clearly introduction, main point 1,2 and 3 and wrap up with a conclusion. Try to do each part within a single paragraph so it becomes even clearer. In the first part of the Writing, you will you have to compare a reading passage with a lecture. Try to take notes into 2 columns (one for the text and another for the lecture) and 5 lines (intro, point 1, 2 and 3 and conclusion). If you do that it will be easier to compare both the reading and the lecture and your paragraphs will be very organized, in order and easy to understand. Once again, divide each section in one or two paragraphs at most and make use of transitions and some different words. For the second writing task you can use your personal beliefs, preferences and opinions, but the structure should be similar.

      So that’s it. I hope it was helpful. Good luck everyone and thanks again Michael for the opportunity.

      Here is a video of one of my students who scored 109/120:

      Good luck to you!

      Michael
