Listen to this post: writingandspeakingcoherently
My TOEFL iBT Newsletter gives you , an advanced English learner, monthly lessons, all of which focus on improving your vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, speaking, and writing. After a few months of subscribing to my TOEFL iBT Newsletter, you will have the English proficiency you will need to pulverize the TOEFL iBT. Among other things, my TOEFL iBT Newsletter offers extensive instruction concerning TOEFL iBT writing and speaking, particularly, how to tightly organize your TOEFL iBT writing and speaking tasks.
The difference between a 4.0/5.0 and a 5.0/5.0 on TOEFL iBT writing and a 3.0/.4.0 and a 4.0/4.0 may very well depend on how coherently organized your writing and speaking tasks are. Beginning with sharply-focused thesis statements, you will need to make sure that you are organized in your TOEFL iBT writing and speaking tasks.
There are a number of techniques which will lead you toward writing and speaking coherently: repeating/rephrasing key terms and ideas; using determiners, possessive pronouns, possessive adjectives, subject pronouns, and object pronouns; using parallel structures; and using transitions and other type of connectives. A TOEFLer who scores high on the speaking and writing tasks uses these types of coherent devices to link the old information to the new. Do you know how to use them?
In conclusion, practice coherently organizing your TOEFL iBT writing and speaking tasks regularly until it feels as natural as awakening from a good night’s rest. Will you score higher than 24/30 points on the TOEFL iBT writing tasks and higher than 26/30 points on the speaking tasks?
