Step 1 – Super-Size Your TOEFL Vocabulary

Lesson 3

Step 1 –Super-Size your Vocabulary

The first step to successfully pass the TOEFL7 iBT Exam is building vocabulary proficiency. Let’s face it.  How can you understand college level vocabulary without having basic vocabulary?  Moreover, how can you perform optimally when reading and listening to TOEFL7 iBT passages without a good vocabulary foundation?  Finally, how can you support your generalizations on the speaking and writing sections with details without having practiced vocabulary beforehand?  For example, if you are asked to summarize a lecture about mountain ranges in the United States, will you have sufficient vocabulary to accurately and intelligently complete the speaking or writing task?

“What is lesson 3 about?”

TOEFL Lesson 3 is a downloadable 150 page  PDF formatted file with listening links so you can hear the vocabulary words you are studying.  And, you take practice listening tests which test the mastery of the words you study.    Once you purchase this lesson, you go to a web page and download the pdf file and use the material for several weeks/months of vocabulary study.

“Cool.  Tell me more about this lesson.”

Let’s take a look at the following parts of this lesson: description, objectives, overview, quizzes, and exams.

Lesson Description

An overall purpose of this vocabulary lesson for students with intermediate to advanced English-speaking ability is to become acquainted with the vocabulary words that are likely to be found on the TOEFL iBT and TOEIC tests.  If you learn these basic words, you will not only score higher on the TOEFL iBT but also function better in academic situations.

Additionally, mastering the vocabulary words in this course will help workers who need business English to communicate more effectively in the workplace.

In another example, a dentist from Peru who is auditing classes in English at a Peruvian university can increase her overall listening skills, especially within the context of business-related conversations. Flight attendants, travel agents, international businesspeople–anyone who needs business English–can benefit from taking this course.
