TOEFL Test Tips – Junior Talking About The TOEFL Test He Just Took And How To Study

“Dude, the TOEFL test was so hard”, he said. What happened, Junior?” I asked.

“I went to bed really late, so I didn’t sleep much. Then I drank too much water.” Junior answered.

I snickered at the thought of Junior agonizing during the exam time, even though I knew my momma wouldn’t approve.

Junior just took the TOEFL test and is ready to answer your questions in our next video. So, leave a question for him about the TOEFL in the comments below. Meantime watch the video above while he talks about the test he took.

“Let’s tell our ESL students that you took the TOEFL test today and see if they have any questions. Then we’ll answer the questions in another video.” I argued.

“No, I’m exhausted and not even dressed up. Look, I’m in my flip-flops.” He replied.

“It’s okay. Nobody is gonna see your toes, man.” I laughed.

I knew Junior could give you some amazing tips about the TOEFL test and exams in general like:

  • What materials you should study
  • What are the questions types on the TOEFL

“Okay.” Junior said…as I hit the record button. Then he proceeded to give us all kinds of amazing advice about the TOEFL test  and how to improve your vocabulary.

“So, go ahead and give us two or three tips for people who want to prepare for the TOEFL.” I said.
