TOEFL exam pattern and tips:
-Learn to communicate with everyone in English. Listen, read, speak and write in English as much as you can.

Send notes and emails to people and write down daily tasks in English, use new words from the dictionary, common expressions. This helps improve sentence formation and vocabulary.

Watch English movies, Listen to music, podcasts etc in English. I’ve recommended some movies above. Music helps you acquire the rhythm and stress patterns of spoken English. Don’t use subtitles too much and pay attention

Everything you can — newspapers, journals, magazines, books and websites.

Concentrate on speaking loud and clear with good pronunciation. Pay attention to the emotion you are conveying and organize your sentences in thought groups. Best way is to talk to your voice assistants like Alexa, Siri or Google Home.

-Practice on a QWERTY Keyboard
A standard English language (QWERTY) computer keyboard is used for the test. Practice typing on a QWERTY keyboard to become familiar with the keys and layout.

Tips for Success on the TOEFL exam Test Day:

-Dress comfortable
-Arrive at the test center at least 30 minutes early
-Eat a good breakfast and stay hydrated
-Do not panic
-Do not spend too much time on one question
-Do not leave questions blank. If you are not sure of the answer, make the best possible choice
-There’s no negative scoring
