The TOEFL® is not an easy exam to study for and pass, much less in a month. Dedication, however, and hard work can make it possible for you to go through an accelerated program such as the following one. We realize that the TOEFL® reuses questions and therefore we have structured our program to rely on the use of questions. To handle questions you must have at least basic level knowledge of English. Beginners must put in more practice and especially in listening which has been found to be the quickest way to learn a new language. There are plenty of ESL (English as a second language) books to help in this practice.
The first day in the program should be taken up by learning the structure of the TOEFL® test including test formats and question types. The second task of the day should be taking a diagnostic test to determine your strengths and weaknesses. We offer two free such tests to our members.
The following one week should be taken up by taking two sets of independent speaking section questions, one from the class of speaking 1 and the other from speaking 2. They should only increase by 10 questions daily, starting with 10 for each up to 50 for in the sixth day. On day seven however, attempt 4 speaking 3 and 5 speaking 4 questions. Be keen on the pronunciation and grammar when you go about this. The next task for the week should be practicing ten of our listening questions on various academic topics. Once started, you should do 10 more questions each day that the previous. Finally, from our independent writing section start out with tackling three topics on day one and three more each day to the seventh. You should generally immerse yourself in an English environment such as by listening to English podcasts when relaxing. In all this you should aim to learn twenty new vocabularies on day 2 and twenty more on each subsequent day.
Day eight is reserved for reviewing the accomplishments of the prior seven days. The next week of work picks up from day seven’s exact schedule. The advancement in this week from the previous one is that now concentration in the speaking section shifts from speaking 1 and speaking 2 to speaking 3 and speaking 4. This is the schedule that sticks up to day thirteen. On day thirteen, tackle 5 independent speaking 4 questions, 5 integrated speaking 5 and 5 integrated speaking 6 questions. The day’s program also includes 3 of our independent writing topics as well as 3 reading questions either from books or from our reading questions. The program for day fourteen is identical to that for day 13. Day 15 is the next review day for work done since day 8.
The rhythm picks up a bit on day 16 where the tasks for the speaking questions include 5 questions each in the independent speaking 4, integrated speaking 5 and integrated speaking 6 sections. Writing practice is in the form of two integrated and three independent writing topics. Finally, you have the choice of picking three reading questions from within books or our reading questions. The same program goes for day 17 and only changes in day 18.
Then you only have to tackle 5 independent 4 and 10 integrated 6 speaking questions. Practice on 3 independent and 2 integrated writing topics as well as 3 reading questions from either books or our reading questions. The same goes for day 19.
Day 20 is for review of work and vocabularies already covered and practicing questions one feels the need to. Take two model tests as well for evaluation and revise them. Repeat the same routine up to day 26 with the exception of day 22 which is for rest. On days 27 to 30, take one model test and relax after revising it. This is a high intensity program and hence the need to relax so much towards the end so that you are not fatigued as you sit the test. All the best as you get ready to pass the TOEFL®.
