The Writing section is the last section you’ll face on the TOEFL. By the time you get to the essay portion, you’ll already have spent a couple of hours at the test center, and you’ll have completed the Reading, Listening, and Speaking sections. Understandably, you might be tired and losing your focus. So, how can you make sure you do as well as possible on your TOEFL essays? By being prepared, of course! That’s where this free resource comes in.





In this PDF, you’ll find in-depth information about the Writing section, including:

  • the topics you’ll write about
  • the differences between the 2 essays
  • how to structure your essays (outline included!)
  • how to brainstorm effective examples to support your opinions
  • pacing strategies so you finish in time
  • English grammar tips to help you write at an advanced level
  • the most common writing difficulties
  • and more!
