One TOEFL Speaking Tip Most Students Ignore.

TOEFL Speaking Students,

Scoring higher than 26 on TOEFL speaking takes careful planning and  a whole lot of practice.  In addition, you will need to practice a lot so that you can overcome any pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and topic development problems that you may have.  Ooops, I already mentioned that you need a lot of practice.  Moving on…….

Over the last few years, I have graded about 6,000 speaking practice tests online at “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” so I am familiar with all the struggles student face as they progress toward reaching their goal of TOEFL speaking 26.

In the following video, I will discuss a little known study tip that most students overlook when preparing for the speaking section of the TOEFL iBT.  If you can incorporate this tip into your regular study routine for TOEFL speaking, it may help you to do much better when TOEFL exam test day finally arrives.
