TOEFL Online Practice Test
TOEFL Practice Test is help you prepare for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Test administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS). The TOEFL began development in 1962 and was first administered two years later. Its purpose is to prepare international students for studying in an English-speaking country or program. Our Practice TOEFL is here to give you a simulation of the content you take the paper-based (PBT) or Internet-based test (iBT). Each testing type is broken up into four sections.
TOEFL Test: Reading, 60 to 80 minutes
The TOEFL as it appears on test day will run anywhere from 60 to 80 minutes in length. It will consist of four to six passages that you will need to read, each one being around 700 words long. Don't expect any light reading here. Most topics are from academia, and it will be your job to understand rhetorical functions like argumentation, cause-and-effect and compare-and-contrast.
You will need to identify specific ideas, themes, inferences, essential information, vocabulary, sentence insertion and more. The test may mandate that you fill out tables complete summaries. Fortunately, you do not need to come into the TOEFL with a prior understanding of the topic at hand in order to get the right answer.
TOEFL: Listening, 60 to 90 minutes
The Listening section also features a flexible time range with around six to nine passages per test. Each section is three to five minutes in length. The passages typically include conversations between two students, academic lectures or discussions. Conversations may be between the student and a campus employee -- professorial or service-based.
As with the Reading section, the lectures will focus on something to do with academia, but the test-taker does not need a prior knowledge of the material in order to get the right answer. That said, it can be quite challenging because you only get one crack at hearing and understanding what the participants in both the conversations and the lectures have to say. You can and should take notes while listening because you will have the opportunity to look over those as you answer each question. Questions are designed to measure your understanding of main ideas, implications, relationships between ideas, important details, speaker purpose, organization of information and speaker attitude.
TOEFL: Speaking, 20 minutes
While the Speaking section is the shortest section of the TOEFL Test, it is no less challenging. This is basically where the knowledge you have of the English language needs to be applied. You will have six individual tasks to perform, so room for error is limited.
The six tasks include four integrated and two independent. In the integrated tasks, you must read a short excerpt, listen to an educational lecture or conversation on campus life, and formulate your answer by fusing the appropriate information from both textual and spoken sources. You will also be required to listen to an academic course lecture or campus life conversation and respond to a question about what you heard. You will be evaluated on how well you are able to synthesize and effectively communicate materials from listening and reading portions.
For the independent tasks, you will be given opinion questions on familiar subjects. Here, you will be scored on how well you are able to speak spontaneously and coherently communicate your ideas.
TOEFL: Writing, 50 minutes
The last, and for many the most rigorous, portion of the TOEFL Test is the Writing part. While you will only have two tasks -- the fewest of any section -- you will also only have 50 minutes to accomplish them which can go by quickly when engaging in longer form writing.
The tasks here are broken up into integrated and independent. For the integrated, you will read a passage and listen to a speaker discuss it. Then, you will write a summary that details all of the important points in the listening passage and shows how it connects to the major takeaways from the reading passage. In the independent task, you will simply write an essay on a familiar topic.
Study Tips to Remember
1. Memorize the test date in advance and leave plenty of room to brush up on problem areas.
2. Purchase study materials and take as many practice exams as you can, especially in the last few weeks before test day.
3. Do a test run before the big day so you can be familiar with the testing environment as well as the required documentation that ETS makes you bring along for the date.
4. When studying, do so in a quiet and secluded place. Avoid the temptation to listen to music -- particularly music with lyrics -- since you will need to switch back and forth from reading to listening sections.
5. If possible, attend study groups with other TOEFL Test takers. There is safety in numbers, and you can learn just as much -- if not more -- from a peer as you can an instructor.
Keep these tips in mind, and the TOEFL Test will be your first step in mastering the English language and improving your marketability.
