Format Of The TOEFL Exam

What About Vocabulary?

| TOEFL Excellencehe TOEFL Exam does NOT test for Vocabulary in the way that most exams do.  However — there ARE Vocabulary question in The Exam.  But, the unique thing about these Vocabulary questions is that the answer to each one is actually IN The Reading Passages — Or the answer can be implied by the information given in each Passage.

TOEFL Vocabulary

| TOEFL Excellencehat being said — the your level of Vocabulary, and your proper or improper usage of Vocabulary IS taken into consideration when scoring your responses in The Speaking & Writing Sections of The Exam.

| TOEFL Excellencehe type of Vocabulary used in The TOEFL Exam is at the same level of English which a person attending an English-speaking University would be expected to know (in a typical first-year University course).  The only other Vocabulary (as stated previously) is that which is used in the directions & questions IN the actual exam.  This is what we at GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! call:  “Functional Vocabulary”.

Some Examples Of Functional Vocabulary Terms That One Will Find Throughout The Exam:

        • Choose (v.) – To pick or select as being the best, or most appropriate
        • Contrast (n.) – The state of being distinctly different than something else
        • Conversation (n.) – An informal exchange of ideas through the spoken word
        • Essay (n.) – A short piece of writing on a particular subject
        • Example (n.) – Something used to illustrate another thing or point being made
        • Imply (v.) – To suggest something in a way that is not specifically stated
        • Infer (v.) – To reach a conclusion based on evidence that is not specifically stated
        • Lecture (n.) – An educational talk to an audience
        • Mention (v.) – To refer to something briefly without going into detail
        • Opinion (n.) – The individual views or beliefs of a person
        • Passage (n.) – A short extract from a larger piece of written material
        • State (v.) – To clearly express something through the written or spoken form
        • Suggest (v.) – To express something for consideration
        • Summarize (v.) – To give a brief statement about the main ideas & details of something
        • Supporting Details (n.) – The details (examples, reasons) which support the main idea

| TOEFL Excellences for studying any other Vocabulary for The TOEFL Exam — you can find just about any word that would be on the exam in the GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! TOEFL Vocabulary Database.

Notice!  —  You Do NOT Need To Learn & Memorize Every Single Word In The Database!  (Most of them you probably know already.)  Just go through The Database and learn each word that you do not know.  Even if you feel that you DO know the word — If You Can Not Define It — Learn It!  😎

| TOEFL Excellencehese words are also part of The 3000 Most Commonly Used Words In The English language — so learning them certainly will NOT be a waste of time.  But it is NOT the main thing that you should be doing to prepare for the exam.  Any other books or videos that you may find about “TOEFL Vocabulary” (which were NOT created by GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!) are (most likely) a complete waste of your time (at least when it comes to preparing for The TOEFL Exam).

Summary

What Score Do I Need To Achieve On The TOEFL?
