How to prepare for TOEFL iBT

Do you want to learn how to prepare for TOEFL iBT?  Well, you have come to the right place.

How to prepare for TOEFL

Step 1: How to prepare for TOEFL iBT–Take an inexpensive full-length TOEFL iBT test to find your level.

First, you should complete a full-length TOEFL iBT practice test so that you can find your current TOEFL level.  I recommend my partner web site, which offers realistic and accurately-scored TOEFL full-length practice tests: CLICK HERE

If you have already taken the actual TOEFL exam, then you can skip this step.

Step 2:  Discuss your results with a TOEFL mentor.

Second,  now that you know your TOEFL level, you should discuss the results with a qualified TOEFL mentor. In fact, you can discuss your results with me 1) by e-mail ( or 2) in a Zoom Meeting. See my banner above for my Zoom meeting office hours.  Whether you write me by email or whether you talk to me face to face in a Zoom meeting, I will need the following information:

  • What your current TOEFL score out of 120 is
  • Your current reading, listening, speaking, and writing subtotal scores
  • What target TOEFL score out of 120 is
  • Target reading, listening, speaking, and writing subtotal scores

Step Three: Begin you recommended study plan.

  • After your meeting, you should begin your recommended TOEFL plan. Make sure, for example, that you are sending your pronunciation practice so I can pinppoint problems you are having with vowel and consonant sounds.
  • In addition, send me your TPO speaking practice. That way I can help you improve your delivery, language-use, and topic development areas.
  • Finally, send me your TPO writing practice tests. I will also give you some basic feedback in my evaluation to help you understand what your estimated scores are and why.

And there you have it: three easy steps to begin and end your TOEFL journey.

Good luck!
