With argument mapping, you will be able to do just that. Best of all, you can apply argument mapping to all six speaking tasks and both writing tasks. That means you will spend less time reading about strategies and more time practicing them.

1. The TOEFL iBT is an English language proficiency test. TOEFL tests academic English language proficiency. For TOEFL, academic English means first year, college-level English. 2. TOEFL means “test of English as a foreign language.” iBT means “internetbased test.” Internet-based means the test computers are connected to the internet. Your answers will be sent via the internet to be scored by ETS. 3. The TOEFL iBT is designed and implemented by Educational Testing Services (ETS) Princeton, New Jersey, USA. 4. You cannot pass or fail the TOEFL test. You will get a score out of 120 total points. Your score measures your English language proficiency. The higher your score, the higher your English language proficiency. 5. The TOEFL iBT is divided into four test sections. You cannot change the task order. Section Task Time Score Reading 3-5 essays 60-100 minutes 30/30 Listening 2-3 dialogues 4-6 lectures 60 minutes 30/30 break 10 minutes Speaking 2 independent tasks 2 minutes 4 integrated tasks 18 minutes 30/30 Writing 1 integrated task 23 minutes 1 independent task 30 minutes 30/30 ____________________________________________________________________ Total: 4 hours 120/120 ____________________________________________________________________ TOEFL® iBT Facts x - Speaking and Writing Strategies for the TOEFL iBT T T 6. Before you take the TOEFL test, find out the TOEFL requirements of the school to which you are applying. Some U.S. colleges and universities do not require a TOEFL score. 7. In some countries, you can take the TOEFL PBT (paper-based test). If you want to go to graduate school in the United States, do not take the PBT. Take the iBT instead. Why? Because graduate and post graduate students at U.S. universities are expected to teach undergraduate classes. That means you must be able to speak academic English proficiently. That is what the iBT tests. The PBT does not test speaking. 8. In the United States, you can register for the TOEFL iBT online or by phone. Visit www.ets.org for registration information. In the United States, the busiest registration times are at the end of each school semester when TOEFL courses end and TOEFL students are ready to take the test. The TOEFL test is very popular. Register as early as possible. 9. You can take notes during the test. Pencils and paper will be supplied. You cannot use your own pencil or paper. After the test, you must give your notes to the test site manager. 10. Expect to use an old-style Microsoft keyboard when you take the test. 11. Your TOEFL iBT score is good for two years. You cannot renew your TOEFL score. You must retake the test and get a new score. For more TOEFL information, visit www.ets.org.
