    English grammar is complex, partly because English has been influenced by various languages throughout its
      history. English grammar and punctuation can be tricky - not just for those learning English as a second
                                       language, but also for native speakers

                                                    How to Pass the TOEFL Exam
                                                                By Jason Kay

  Passing the TOEFL exam is a critical step in getting into college, obtaining professional certifications
needed for work and even getting a job in certain cases. For anyone whose native language is not
English, the TOEFL exam is often something they face if they plan to live or study in an English
environment. TOEFL or Test of English as a Foreign Language is a standardized test of academic
English that is administered worldwide. It is available in an Internet-based form and a paper test.

 The TOEFL exam is not an easy test. It is comprised of 4 parts: reading, listening, speaking and
writing and takes 4 hours to complete. The test taker must have a very good understanding of the
English language including grammar, idioms, listening skills and vocabulary. It is very important to
prepare for the TOEFL exam in order to pass it. Below are some tips on how to pass the TOEFL.

 1. Know what to expect. Read all you can about the topics tested in the TOEFL and how they are
tested. Get sample questions and even full sample tests. This way the format and type of questions
you will encounter will not be a surprise to you.

2. Review all your grammar rules and idiomatic expressions that you have learned to date in English.

 3. Invest in a TOEFL preparatory book. It is a structured, easy to follow method of reviewing all the
information necessary to pass the TOEFL test. Such books typically come with sample tests to help
you prepare.

 4. Practice for the exam by taking a practice test. Time each section as it would be during the real
exam. Use the correction key to correct it afterwards and to identify any mistakes you made. Review
the rules for those mistakes and be sure you understand why you made the errors you did.

 5. Work with an English tutor or teacher who can help you understand the areas you are having
difficulty with. A good teacher will be able to provide explanations that you can understand, as well as
memory tricks to help you retain the information.

 6. Take additional TOEFL practice exams until you achieve a high passing grade on several. Now you
are ready to take the test.

 7. Get plenty of sleep the night before the test, so that you arrive in good shape for one of the most
important tests a non-native English speaker will ever take.

 8. Pace yourself as you take the test. Don’t go so fast that you neglect to read instructions and don’t
dedicate too much time to any one question.

 They say that practice makes perfect. Nowhere is that more true than with a test like TOEFL. The test
does a very comprehensive job of analyzing a person’s ability to learn and work in their second
language. Therefore, it is essential to review, study and learn all the skills needed in order to pass the
TOEFL exam. Acing this test will open numerous doors for you.

                                       Why Should You Take the TOEFL Test?

TOEFL, or the Test of English as a Foreign Language, is a test that measures your ability to speak,
read, and write in English at a college or university level. This test is one of the best measures of
whether or not you are ready to attend college at an English-speaking school. Even though you may
think that you speak and write English well, doing so on the college level is entirely different, especially
if you have learned it as a foreign language.

What Is Contained in the TOEFL?

 The test is either Internet-based or paper-based. Both test the same things, but in a slightly different
format. These assessments test your ability to read, listen to, speak, and write English. You will be
asked to read passages and then answer questions on them. You will also be asked to listen to a
lecture that is a college-level lecture, followed by more questions. A few tasks will require a verbal
answer, and you will be asked to write two passages. The lectures, reading passages, and questions
are all designed to reflect the types of tasks you would be asked to perform at the college level.

Who Needs the TOEFL?

 Students who wish to attend an English speaking university or college but have learned English as a
foreign language should take the TOEFL before applying to their chosen school. Many schools require
the scores from this test for admission. Even if your school does not require it, having a good score can
help you have an advantage over other applicants if there are limited openings available.

 Outside of the admission requirements, the TOEFL will help you assess whether or not you have the
skills necessary to deal with academic situations in your chosen school. You will need to be able to
hear lectures, write papers, and communicate verbally with teachers and classmates. The TOEFL will
show you whether or not you have attained this level of English fluency. If you need more practice,
preparing for the test will give you that practice.

Benefits of the TOEFL

 The TOEFL is the English language fluency assessment accepted by over 6,000 institutions. You
might assume that all of these are in America or the United Kingdom, but they are actually spread
across the world in 110 countries. Almost every university in the major English speaking countries,
such as the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, use TOEFL scores to determine whether
or not non-English speakers can be admitted to their programs, receive scholarships, or enter graduate

 Another benefit of the TOEFL over other English proficiency tests is the fact that there are over 4,000
test centers you can use. If you do have to travel, you will save time and money because the test can
be completed in just one day.

 Finally, this test gives you an unbiased measure of your English speaking ability. Tests are scored
anonymously, and no interviews are included as part of the process. If you know English well, you will
score well, plain and simple. The TOEFL is the best measure of your ability to succeed in an English
