TO THE STUDENTHow to prepare for the TOEFL Test
  • As the TOEFL test is a standardized test of English. To do well on this test, you should work to improve the following:

  • Work to understand the test- taking strategies specific to the version of the TOEFL test that you are taking.
  • When you take practice tests, focus on applying the appropriate language skills and strategies.
  • As you are taking the computer version for the ELPT, you should work on computer skills.
elpt tactics
ELPT Tactics
  • It is not a good idea to do a lot of studying in a short amount of time. You need to spread your studying over the weeks.
  • You need to study regularly and on daily basis (one hour of study on each six days is more beneficial than six hours of study on one day)
  • You need to do all the exercises for each section, do not omit some of the exercises that you don’t know.
  • You can choose to work and study together with some friends if you think this would help.
  • Although you might do some exercises with the teacher at class, it is still very important that you work at home and prepare, study, and revise what you take in class.
elpt tactics timing
ELPT Tactics- (Timing)
  • Wear a watch when you practice your test (your room might not have a clock).
  • Remember the average time per question on each section of the test (overall time\ number of questions).

(Be careful, If you are too slow or too fast, you will not get your highest score!)

  • Remember you can move around one section beginning with either type of question.

(Control the test; don’t let the test control you)

  • Easy questions and difficult questions are mixed together. If you spend too much time on a difficult question, you may not have enough time for some easier questions that appear later on the test.
elpt tactics posturing performance
ELPT Tactics- (Posturing & Performance)
  • Sit up straight, lean forward slightly, and keep both feet on the floor. Don’t lean back in the chair or lie on the floor or the bed.

(A position which is too comfortable will not help you learn)

  • Use both hands when you practise
  • Keep your eyes on the questions and the answer spaces. Don’t look around the room or at other people if you are working with a group.
