Greetings to all future test takers!
I am writing Toefl on the coming Saturday and I have just started my preparation. I thought of an idea through which we can all improve our writing skills. Its pretty simple!
*Pls note that this activity only involves the 2nd Question (Independent Writing Task) of the writing section*
Myself or any other user will post a topic from TOEFL OG
, and all future test takers will be invited to write essays on the SAME topic. It will be essential that everyone writes his or her essay under timed conditions (30 minutes only). All writers will then be expected to post their essays on the same thread. This way we will be able to gather quite a few essays on one topic. Besides, providing us with writing practice, this activity will allow us to read essays written by others and hence, give us an idea about some points that we may have missed in our own essay. Moreover, we will be able to critique other essays and provide suggestions to each another for score improvement. Ideally speaking, this should help improve everyone's score.
To summarize, following is the process:
1. Topic from OG posted on this thread.
2. All users are invited to write an essay in 30 minutes on the same topic and post it on this thread.
3. At the same time they can read and critique the essays posted by other users.
I will kick start the process by proposing the first topic from TOEFL OG
:Topic # 1:
Young people enjoy life more than older people do.
