      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.

      I’d say the very best place to start is with a practice exam. There are a number of free practice TOEFL tests on the web. The one I recommend the most is TOEFL Quick Prep— that’s two full free practice tests anyway. Quick Prep is great, because it’s made by ETS, the same company that makes the real TOEFL. In fact, all Quick Prep sections and questions are taken from past real TOEFL exams.

      Once you’ve taken a full practice test, look at the answer key, and think about how you felt during TOEFL Speaking and Writing. Identify your strengths and weaknesses. Then start your TOEFL prep with those weaknesses in mind. Also begin your prep with your strengths in mind. After the test, you can start building on your strengths while also working in your weaknesses.

    Hello Magoosh team

    I have taken TOEFL exam, and unfortunately, I could not get a good score. In listening part, I have to say that sometimes I miss the lecture or conversation. I do not know what can I do for fixing this part. And I have another problem in this part. sometimes I have got the concept of the lecture but, I choose the wrong answer. I don’t know why. I have been taking lots of TPO test, but my score did not cheng. I could not detect my problem.

    Moreover, in speaking part, It is really hard for me to talk fluently in English. I have the proper variety of vocabularies, and I know the English structure but, during I am speaking, I made lots of mistakes, grammatically. Another fact is that when I am talking in English my brain frozen up abruptly.

    Please help me to fix these faults

      Hi Jimmy,

      I’m so sorry to hear that you are not happy with your TOEFL score! I know it’s frustrating to prepare and work hard without achieving your goal. I highly recommend that you explore our blog for listening and speaking strategies that can help you to master the test. The TOEFL is not just about understanding English–it’s about how you take tests and use strategies to answer questions correctly! Make sure that you understand the strategies for answering each question inside and out!

      It also sounds like you need more practice with both listening and speaking, so why not practice both at the same time? The more you practice, the more confident you will be, and the less you will freeze up or forget how to answer. This blog post has some great resources to use for listening or reading practice that’s similar to TOEFL material.

      After listening to a presentation in English or reading an article from an English news site, summarize it out loud or in your head. Try to speak (out loud or in your head) for a full minute about what you read or heard. Summarizing is an incredibly important skill for the TOEFL. If you are speaking out loud, record what you say, then listen to it and try it again with even better pronunciation and with more details the second time. Try to mimic the pronunciation of the speaker, if you are summarizing a presentation. It may sound strange or awkward, or like you are mocking/insulting the native accent, but that’s okay! What feels natural to you will not be correct pronunciation, unless you have years of experience surrounded by native speakers. You have to sound strange and unnatural to change your accent. Try constantly to sound like the native speakers you hear.

      And you can go beyond just summarizing! When reading or listening to a presentation, pause often to give your reaction and opinion on the material. Act like you are having a conversation with the author or speaker, although you are not really talking to them.

      Here are some more tips from our TOEFL blog:

      Hi Payal,

      I’ll be honest with you: it will be difficult to raise your score by over 23 points in just a few weeks. If you want to reach this score, you should focus on improving your general English ability, immerse yourself in English as much as possible, and ensure that you understand all of the strategies necessary for success on the TOEFL. I recommend that you start by reading some of the following blog posts:
      How to Study for a TOEFL Retake
      10 Tips to Improve Your English
      How to Improve your English Online
      Check out all of our eBooks for answer templates, strategies and more!

      And finally, if you are looking for some extra help as you prepare for the TOEFL, I encourage you to check out the Magoosh Premium TOEFL program, a comprehensive web-based program that includes video lessons, practice questions and support from our team of tutors. I think that we can help you to maximize your study time in the next month for maximum improvement 🙂 Check us out with a free 7-day trial!
