How to Pass TOEFL iBT Exam

Find out how TOEFL Tutor can help you achieve your target score

TOEFL Listening Section

In the TOEFL Listening section, almost two-thirds of questions come from academic curriculums. Common topics you will see are Geology, Biology, American History, Astrology, and etc. The challenging part is most students don't have the knowledge, topic, or familiarity with keywords and sentences in the lecture. 

In the TOEFL listening exam, you only have one chance to listen to the lecture, so it is crucial to understand the meanings of key vocabularies in the lecture. It’s also important for students to know how to pronounce them. In order to accomplish these tasks, students need to train and learn to understand and associate the keywords quickly with relevant knowledge as soon as they hear them.

The good news is in every TOEFL exam, the questions are always from a pool of their pre-made questions. We at have gathered topics from previous TOEFL exams and have professional English tutors, writers, and recorders create and answer these questions for you to spend time practicing with.

TOEFL Speaking Section

A lot of students would agree that the TOEFL speaking section is the most difficult section to prepare for. The reason is most students don’t have an opportunity to speak English every day and that makes speaking any language difficult. However, the TOEFL Speaking exam will also grade you on your ability to organize your thoughts, as well, as your English speaking pronunciation.

Here are a few tips for you to spend time practicing for the TOEFL Speaking Section.

Speaking 1 and 2:

You are given 15 seconds to prepare an answer. You then have 45 seconds to record your answer.

However, while practicing:

  1. Write down your answer first. This will help you develop better English sentence structures that will translate into your Speaking.

  2. Take your time recording your answers and really listen to yourself with judgment.

  3. Compare your pronunciations with the provided examples until you are comfortable pronouncing the words.

  4. When you’re ready, spend time practice with our TOEFL test simulator to train yourself with speed and accuracy.

We encourage students to really spend time preparing these two sections because they help develop your speaking instincts and abilities, which are important when you are studying in an English-speaking school.

Speaking 3 and 5:

The topics always revolve around things happening in a campus. We have prepared similar topics and conversations for students to quickly familiarize themselves with those conversations. From our experience, the ability to take notes to summarize the points is crucial to the success in TOEFL’s speaking 3 and 5 section.

Speaking 4 and 6:

Speaking 4 and 6 are By far the most challenging sections in the entire TOEFL exam. That is why we have prepared for you 140 speaking 4 and 6 questions with sample answers. Many of our materials have shown up in actual TOEFL speaking exams. For example: "Paradox of the choice" is one topic that has appeared many times in the exam.
