10 Tips to Improve Your TOEFL Essays

By following this simple advice you may see a big improvement in your TOEFL writing score.

There are many ways to improve your TOEFL writing, and a lot of these don't involve studying at all. Here's our top ten list:

1. Answer the question

Your grammar may be perfect and your ideas may be great. Even so, if you don't answer the TOEFL question, none of that matters. If the question asks for your opinion, be sure to write about what you think--don't write about what other people think. On the other hand, if the question is about what other people think or do, don't write about yourself.

2. Use short and simple sentences

Good writers can express complex ideas in a very simple way. If you are able to do this, you will demonstrate strong writing skills. More importantly, short and simple sentences mean fewer grammatical mistakes.

3. Give your essays a beginning, middle, and end

Learn the TOEFL essay structure. Your essay should have an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. This structure helps organize your thoughts and makes it easier for readers to understand.
