      Hi Nikita,

      Speaking and Writing are the most challenging TOEFL skills for many test-takers. When it comes to TOEFL Speaking, it’s best to learn by example. Do what you can to find sample responses to TOEFL Speaking prompts. There are some good example responses on YouTube, such as this one from English Simple TV and this video from Magoosh’s very own Lucas Fink. But you’ll need to choose videos like that carefully– a lot of TOEFL sample responses you’ll find online aren’t so great– either they’re poorly executed or they’re not very authentic to the exam. So you need to be a cautious critic, imitating the kinds of answers that will work for you on test day.

      If you’re not sure how to do that, another great place to listen to and imitate speech is This website’s famous TED Talks include some fine examples of academic-style speaking. And they also include plenty of instances of people with foreign accents speaking in English–and speaking well! This gives you plenty of good speech to emulate.

      As for Writing, TOEFL Writing is a lot like undergraduate-level academic writing. You can get a lot of good tips for this kind of writing form the English Department or Writing Center websites of American universities. Here’s a good custom Google search to get you started.

      Don’t forget to also check out sample student Speaking and Writing responses with commentary from the TOEFL’s official YouTube channel and other official exam materials such as The Official Guide to the TOEFL Test.

      Many PhD programs in the US do not require a Master’s as a prerequisite. It’s definitely possible to go straight form your bachelor’s degree to a PhD program in the American system. Look around, and you should be able to find a degree that suits you.

      Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with your TOEFL Reading/TOEFL Listening scores. That can be frustrating. Often when you’re struggling in the first two sections of the TOEFL, your problems will be related to test strategy rather than English skill. By this, I mean that you may need to simply get a better understanding of the question types in these sections. If you haven’t done so already, make sure you know the TOEFL Reading question types and the TOEFL Listening question types. Also work on strategies that can help you eliminate incorrect multiple choice answers.
