TOEFL Writing Practice Using Articles

I’ve shown you the rules for using “the”, “a,” and “an”. Now it’s time to put those rules into practice. We can start practicing with one of the free TOEFL Task 2 Independent Writing question from ETS’ official website (page 9 of this document).

The question is:

“Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Always telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.”

To practice writing, first look at a sample answer to this question. In the sample answer, I have left out all of the articles. Can you figure out where to put the missing articles “the,” “a,” and “an”?

After correcting my sample answer, answer an additional Task 2 question yourself. Then consult my article tutorials to check your use of articles.

    Dear Magoosh,

    Hope you feel fine.

    I am trying to find a free online site for checking my IELTS/TOEFL writing for free.

    Is there such a site?

    Would you mind advise me, please?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Warm regards

      I’m sorry to say we don’t know of any sites that review writing for free. There are some sites that can help you find a language exchange partner, though—they will sometimes correct your writing in exchange for you correcting their writing. Here’s one:

Magoosh blog comment policy: To create the best experience for our readers, we will only approve comments that are relevant to the article, general enough to be helpful to other students, concise, and well-written! 😄 Due to the high volume of comments across all of our blogs, we cannot promise that all comments will receive responses from our instructors.

We highly encourage students to help each other out and respond to other students' comments if you can!
