The Executive Director of the TOEFL test at ETS released this article recently promoting the TOEFL test and criticizing the Duolingo English test. Let us know what you think! Do you agree with Mr. Gopal?


Here’s a tip from Todd Stuchiner, one of our TOEFL Teachers.

The TOEFL is massive.

Save yourself some time (and a headache) by starting the same way every time you write an essay.

Give yourself a break and use the following two templated sentences to start each essay:

Integrated Essay
– The article introduces the topic of (topic)… .

Independent Essay
– No one can deny that there are both positive and negative aspects of (topic)… .

If you want to get fancy, you can check out our advanced templates here.

Either way, save yourself some time and start the same way every time.

And if you want some help from a TOEFL Writing expert, try a trial lesson with me. I can identify your strengths, weaknesses, and what you must do to improve.

– Todd
