Last week during my Level Four Grammar class, I got a question from Crystal, “What is the difference between “freeway” and “highway?” Of course, no question is off limits in any of my ESL classes, as long as is it a language question for which the student is ernestly seeking an answer.
I thought about an answer and then came up with the following response: ” A freeway typically has a faster posted speed limit, more lanes, few or no traffic signials, and an on-ramp and off-ramp when entering and exiting. On the other hand, a highway typically has a slower posted speed limit, fewer lanes, and traffic signals. Additionally, a highway may go through the center of a town.”
What TOEFL iBT questions do you have? Or, do you have some suggestions that you would like to add to some of my posts. An ESL teacher since 1994, I have a mantra that continues to ring true: “To teach is to learn twice.” Responses to some of my posts will give me and others the opportunity to learn about the TOEFL iBT from your perspective.
Let’s see what questions and comments you will add to our TOEFL iBT blog community. Maybe I will pass along your words of wisdom to my TOEFL iBT students at California State University, San Bernardino.
