Rid,

Excellent post, thank you. I just took GMAT and now I only have 3 weeks to prepare for the TOEFL (November 06). Some questions about the TOEFL:
- Like most of the students, my problem with the TOEFL is the Speaking and writing sections.
- I like the idea of using templates for both sections of the test, but is it feasible to write the template on the noteboard before the begining of the speaking section? Can I write the templante on the noteboard during the break? Or during another section (reading, for example)?
- Do these templates can result in a 29/30 score?
- I saw somewhere in the forum someone who mentioned a structure from ETS for the first writing exercise. Do you know if it is close to the model you provided?
-Is there a list of examples for the independent writing task (for the gmat the GMAC provide a pdf with a lot of examples).

Thanks again for your help!

In one of these videos, the teacher mentions that for an essay score 30 it must have more than 450 words. Do you know if there are a word cont during the essay?

I came across with this post yesterday and thank god I did since it is very very helpful.
It gives you a very good idea of what you should do and what you should aim for. Keeps you focused on the question and that is what matters.

Thanks for that :)


On the initial post question 5 and 6 of the Speaking section are missing, I have searched on youtube and have found the following links:

Question 5: watch?v=O2dU1JqlWS0

Question 6: watch?v=sf3yr-EoUQI

Resh, may I suggest you add these links to the original post?

Thanks

note: I am not allowed to post urls for now but if you go to youtube website and copy/paste the terminations I give to your browser should work just fine


Thanks Dessa! +1
Just edited the original post to add your links

To all,

I have used these videos as a guide and got 113 (speaking 26 and writing 28), which met my aspirations. :)

I didn't follow word by word the suggestions but it is without a doubt a very good help.
Not only it helps you on the structure of the answer but it also teaches you on what to focus while listening and reading the question.

Indeed a very good post.

Thanks

very helpful, I have the test this sunday and I am not afraid of it anymore. Of course, everything depends on one's performance but those templates help structure the thoughts.

One question is regarding integrated essay, do I need to write as much as I can as for second essay? So does word count is important for 1st essay?

In my Toefl exam, my first speaking question is;
What is the important invention in your county in last 5 years.
I think, English level is not important to answer this kind of questions:)

my TOEFL exam is next week. i just have a question regarding writing section. in Microsoft office word we automatically get capital letter at the beginning of the sentence. but in TOEFL we do not get so. my question is 'is it necessary to make first letter capital. if some one miss it, is it hurt his score?

It never crossed my mind but it is a good question.
I have done the exam without even noticing that and my score was not bad at all (113, 28 on the writing).
I believe that if you have a couple of mistakes like those your score will not be hurt.

Best advice I can give is for you to proofread all the essays and correct everything you can. Keep some time for it.

Cheers

You should to put a capital letter always at the beginning of every sentence (ie, after a period) in all your English writing (not only in TOEFL, AWA, essays, etc.). You won't provide a good impression to your readers if you don't do that.

By the way, this is not an English language standard, is this also the case in German, Spanish, French, etc.
