Step 1 –Super-Size your Vocabulary
The first step to successfully pass the TOEFL 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 4 about?”
Lesson 4 is divided into 3 parts, each part containing 500 words: Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course I (A-E), Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course II (E-P), and Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course III (P-Z).
“So, this course is for TOEFlers with advanced English skills?”
Yep, if your TOEFL iBT score is above 60/120, this is the right vocabulary course for you. If your TOEFL score is below 60, you should take TOEFL Vocabulary Lesson 3 first.
“How many words will I study in this course? Are these the same words that I downloaded free from Better TOEFL Scores?”
You will learn 1,500 words, and yes, these are the same words that you downloaded. However, in this lesson, you will get audio files of all the words and thousands of test questions to test your mastery of the words.
“What about the other 200 words? Better TOEFL Scores gave me a free list of 1,700 not 1,500 words.”
I have another lesson to help you learn the other 200 words: TOEFL Vocabulary Lesson 3.
“OK. Can you tell me about the three parts of the course?”
Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course I (A-E)
The Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course I, designed for high intermediate level students in terms of English proficiency, will give you a solid foundation of college level vocabulary, increasing your word recognition of TOEFL iBT and college-level vocabulary words. Carefully designed skill-building vocabulary quizzes will sharpen your ability to recognize synonyms and antonyms of the words you study. Additionally, these quizzes will reinforce the noun, adjective, adverb, and verb forms of the words you study and will give you a chance to see the words placed into various reading passages. Finally, you will hear the pronunciation of the words you study so that you will be able to recognize these words when you see them in reading and listening passages.
Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course II (E-P)
The Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course II, designed for high intermediate level students in terms of English proficiency, will give you a solid foundation of college level vocabulary, preparing you for reading passages on the reading, speaking, and writing sections of the TOEFL iBT. Since the vocabulary words you study will be placed into academic reading passages to give you a context, you will see a variety of punctuation marks used. Furthermore, after taking this course, you will be able to recognize most academic words on the TOEFL iBT, making it less likely that you will plagiarize the reading passage on the integrated writing section. Finally, this course will give you the vocabulary confidence you will need during your 4.5 hour TOEFL iBT test-taking experience.
Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course III (P-Z)
The Advanced TOEFL iBT Vocabulary Course III, a vocabulary course designed for high intermediate level students in terms of English proficiency, will give you the final pieces of the TOEFL iBT vocabulary puzzle. Upon completion of this course, you will not need to be overly dependent on translation dictionaries, for you will have developed a broad base of academic vocabulary and vocabulary in context strategies, one of which is to use referents to understand the meanings of other words in a sentence. You will be able to read faster with higher comprehension, and you will be able to read, listen, speak, and write with confidence when taking the TOEFL iBT.

“Can I see some sample lesson material of your quizzes and audio files?”
Here is a sample of one of 12 quizzes to accompany this lesson: Quiz One 1-150. Click on the following link to see an example of one of three final exams to accompany this lesson: Final Exam 1-500
Here is an example of one of more than thirty audio files. I pronounce each word three times: 1) so you can hear the new word, 2) so you can recognize the new word, and 3) so that you can learn the new word: Vocabulary words 501-530 . The audio files are low quality so I will NOT charge you for any of them. Therefore, instead of charging you $29.99, I will only charge you $4.99.
“How many quiz questions will I get to test my mastery of these 1,500 words?”
There are 1,487 practice questions, all designed to reinforce not only the meaning of the words you study but also the synonyms, antonyms, and nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs of these new words.
Additionally, you will repeatedly see how the vocabulary words are used in academic contexts.
