TOEFL

 In the TOEFL speaking  the examiners look at 3 criteria to give you your TOEFL mark. These TOEFL criteria and what you need to do to get a 4 are ....

  • Delivery (4= Do I speak with clear intonation, pronunciation and only minor pauses?)

  • Language use (4 = Do I have good control of complex grammar and vocabulary that I use easily? )

  •  Topic development (4 = Do I develop my ideas well and do I join them together with cohesive devices / linking words well?)
