Reading

TOEFL Reading Introduction

 

The reading section, the first section of the TOEFL iBT, evaluates your ability to read and answer questions at an academic level. It includes 3-4 passages with each passage containing 10 questions for a total of 30-40 questions. The length of each passage is usually 600 to 700 words. Generally, 54-72 minutes will be given to finish this section.

When taking the reading test, you can skip answers and come back to them later. You can come back and change your answers at any time during the reading test period.

Reading Difficulty Level

 

The TOEFL reading difficulty level is equivalent to introductory undergraduate university subjects ranging from social science to architecture. Even though it is not easy to understand all subjects, understanding all subjects clearly is not necessarily needed. By learning the strategies to answer each reading question type, you can get a high TOEFL score without fully understanding the reading passage. The first step to know is that there are certain TOEFL reading question types.

  1. Vocabulary, 2. Reference, 3. Inference, 4. Purpose, 5. Negative Factual Information, 6. Essential Information, 7. Detail, 8. Sentence Insertion, 9. Complete the Summary, 10. Complete the Table

 

How to get a better score in the Reading Section

 

  1. Understanding basic academic vocabulary in context is inevitable to do well on the reading section.

  2. Scanning a written passage quickly, understanding its main ideas, and supporting details.

  3. Understand how information is organized.

  4. Understand inferences, relationships, paraphrases, and the purpose of a passage.

  5. Answer questions within the given time.

Listening

Listening Introduction

The listening section, the second section of the TOEFL iBT test, normally containing 3 conversations and 4 lectures, is designed to measure your ability to understand conversations and lectures in English. 

- conversation: 2-3 minutes between two people

- lecture: 4-6 minutes of either a professor delivering a speech or a professor interacting with students

Each listening audio will follow with a set number of questions:

- conversation: 5 questions

- lecture: 6 questions

Normally, there are a total of 34 questions in the entire listening section and you will have 20 minutes in which to complete these 34 questions. This does not include the time you spend on listening to the lectures or the conversation. However, if you encounter a test that includes 17 experimental questions, you will have 30 minutes in which to complete all 51 questions. Again, this does not include the time you spend on listening to the lectures or the conversation.

 

In general, the entire listening section (including time spent listening) will take you between 60 - 90 minutes to complete.
