Recently i have appeared for TOEFL ibt exam. I want to share my experience and some tips to those who are willing to appear for TOEFL.
I think most of us will agree that speaking is the toughest section in ibt, if you do well in Speaking then your score will certainly be 100+. To improve speaking i suggest to follow these steps which i really found very helpful...
1.Practice Speaking with some common topic for question 1 and 2 , like your childhood memory, most favorite person, your favorite place to visit..etc I have attached a pdf where you will find several such topic.. practice those first.
2.Record and listen to your speaking again and again try to improve it. Speak slowly but cohorently.
3.(**Most important) install Skype and add some friends who will also appear for TOEFL and talk with them at least 1hr a day.(You will find several person and their skype id who will also appear for toefl in various blog just google TOEFL speaking partner and visit some of them.) .
It will greatly increase your fluency. I personally found it very helpful.
4.Download some video from Youtube like steve ford tips on TOEFL speaking and some other stuff like jason renshaw. It will give you inspiration.
For Listening try to take notes specially about the types, characteristic.. it will improve your score.
For reading try to read some article everyday and try to read it faster.. increase your vocabulary.
For writing try to resolve grammatical mistakes and please revise your essay after it is completed..
And best of all try to relax on exam room. More you are relax more it will help you to give an excellent exam..
