The TOEFL Writing Tets

Prior to taking the TOEFL Test, many candidates are very sure of where their weaknesses lie. This is why they concentrate so much on reading and speaking in English.

Many students invest so much energy in watching American English films and talking to American English speakers. They read, they listen, they write down vocabulary… they invest such a great amount of themselves into reading and speaking in English that they forget about writing.

Recall your own particular TOEFL practice.

You may have avoided practicing your written work skills just because you suspected that reading, listening and speaking in English would get the job done. It makes sense that if you can effectively read and speak in English, then your written work skills ought to be good enough to pass. It also makes sense that if you feel nervous when you have to speak in English, you will be more motivated to perfect your speaking skills.

Unfortunately, writing summaries and essays in English is a skill that must be practiced separately from reading and speaking. It is connected of course, but just because a student can speak fluently in English, or because they can read and understand at a very high level, it does not mean that they can write. Writing is a very important part of academic and professional life, so it carries a lot of weight in the exam. From language and spelling standards to the art of building an essay, the TOEFL exam writing section will require all of your focus, mental energy, and English language knowledge.

Noun Gender – TOEFL Vocab & Grammar

Noun Gender - TOEFL Vocab & Grammar

Using nouns correctly in English is relatively simple, with standard rules and only a few exceptions.

In general, nouns answer the questions:

? “What is it?” and “Who is it?”

They give names to things, people, and places.

The Noun-Gender tells us about the sex of the noun.

In Grammar-Nouns, there are THREE GENDERS.

1. Masculine gender:

A noun is said to be in the Masculine gender if it refers to a male character or member of a species.

Man, lion, hero, boy, king, horse and actor are nouns of masculine gender.


• A boy is playing in the play-ground.

• Hero of the movie is not a native of this country.

In these sentences the words “boy” and “hero” are masculine-gender nouns.

The next in the Noun-Gender is feminine gender.

2. Feminine gender:

A noun is said to be in the feminine gender if it refers to a female member of a species.

Woman, lioness, heroine, girl, mare, niece, empress, cow and actress are few of the feminine-gender nouns that we use.


• A girl is playing in the play-ground.

• Heroine of the movie is not a native of this country.

In these sentences the words “girl” and “heroine” are feminine-gender nouns.

The next in the Noun-Gender is common gender.

3. Neuter gender:

A noun is said to be in the neuter gender if it refers to a member of a species which is neither a male nor a female.

Normally nouns referring to lifeless objects are in neuter nouns.

Chair, table, tree, star, mountain, street, book, car, school,
paper, pencil and computer are few of the neuter nouns which We use regularly.


• Computer has brought about drastic changes in our lives.
• Tree is cleansing the air.
• Stars are not visible in the day-time.
• Books are our best friends.

In these sentences the words, “computer”, “tree”, “stars” and “books” are the neuter-gender nouns.

? Noun Gender :

Gender is sometimes shown by different forms or different words when referring to people or animals.

Masculine (M) . Feminine (F) . Gender Neutral (N) .

? Examples :

M: Man
F: Woman
N: Person / People

M: Father
F: Mother
N: Parent / Parents

M: Husband
F: Wife
N: Spouse

M: Boy
F: Girl
N: Child / Children

M: Rooster
F: Hen
N: Chicken

? Many nouns that refer to people’s roles and jobs can be used for either a masculine or a feminine subject. like:
? cousin, teenager, teacher, doctor, student, friend, colleague

? For example:

Peter is my cousin, he is a doctor. Sarah is my other cousin, she is a doctor, too.

Tips for Learning English (TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC): Mastering Phrasal Verbs

Tips for Learning English (TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC): Mastering Phrasal Verbs

One of the most difficult, but unfortunately most important, aspects of learning English is its famous phrasal verbs.  They are everywhere! Unfortunately, you cannot escape them, and to progress to an advanced level in English, you must learn them proficiently.

So first, a quick refresher: what is a phrasal verb?

Phrasal verbs are verbs with prepositions or adverbs attached to them. They are easy to understand if they are used literally, but many have completely different meanings from the normal sense of the verb being used and can, therefore, be very confusing for students of English as a foreign language.

For example, everyone will understand the phrasal verb in the following sentence because the meaning is literal and obvious:

“He was looking down at the floor while the teacher was shouting at him.”

But what about the same phrasal verb used in a more idiomatic way?

“She looks down on all her colleagues at work.”

This means she thinks she is better than and has no respect for her colleagues. When phrasal verbs are not used literally, they are idiom just like all other English idioms. There are many books on phrasal verbs, but because most of them only deal with phrasal verbs, they can be very boring and intimidating for students. Phrasal verbs should be learned together with other useful vocabulary and not in isolation.

A phrasal verb is a two or three-part verb consisting of a short verb, such as break, go, run, take, fall, get, or come, and a particle, such as up, in, on, off, over, out, down, or over.

Verb + Particle

The particle part of the verb greatly modifies, or changes, the meaning of the verb.  So, sometimes you have a verb which has a completely different meaning, depending on its particle. For example, get up; get over; get around to; get in, and get through all have completely different meanings.  It is imperative to understand these meanings to fully understand native speakers when they speak English.

Phrasal verbs are informal.

As such, they are extremely commonplace in speaking and informal texts, such as news articles or emails. Phrasal verbs do have equivalents that derive from Latin. This means that if you speak Spanish, Italian, Romanian, French or Portuguese, these verbs are going to be very familiar to you. Some examples are:

Call off: Cancel

Throw up: Vomit

Put off: Postpone

Runaway: Escape

Work out: Exercise

There is a strong tendency for learners to avoid using phrasal verbs because they do not appear in other languages. Do not do this! Search for phrasal verbs and try to use them as much as possible.  Using phrasal verbs will make your English sound more natural.

There’s a trick to using pronouns with phrasal verbs. 

Also, something which can be tricky with phrasal verbs is that you must separate the verb and the particle when you use a pronoun, and insert the pronoun in the middle. What? An example will make this clear:

I put off the meeting. I put it off.

I called off the dinner party. I called it off.

I let down my father. I let him down.

This rule requires some practice. The best thing to do is simply make sentences in your head, and then say them using the pronoun, making sure to insert it between the verb and the particle.  Don’t let this small rule scare you from using phrasal verbs! It just requires a little bit of practice.

Phrasal verbs should not be understood literally.

You often have to study the word for word. This means that you cannot always understand the meaning of them in context, based on the verb and the particle. Sometimes this is possible: for example, blow away; fly away; pass away; go away. These phrasal verbs all have the idea of leaving.

However, other phrasal verbs have very strange particle verb combinations, which make little sense: run out of; give in; hang out; and crop up, for example.   You, unfortunately, have to look up the meanings of these verbs in a dictionary to understand them.

Are you feeling better about using phrasal verbs when speaking English? I hope you take up learning them so that you can show off your awesome English while you are hanging out with your friends!
