Twenty Tips to Triumph with TOEFL. Tip #15.

Strategies for the Writing section

Don't forget that you will have to make connections in the first part of the Writing section. Memorize phrases from practice tests that show you how to do this. The most important thing is to keep your writing simple and clear. You will not have access to a spell check function. Don't use vocabulary and punctuation that you are uncertain of. Spend some time planning your essay before you write it. Your outline will save you time in the long run. When you practice for the essay, find a format that you are comfortable with. Use this format every time. For example, your thesis might always be in the third sentence of your introduction. You might always end your conclusion with a question. Make sure to use lots of examples to support your essay. Transitional words and phrases will make your writing easier to read. Memorize a list of these and practice typing them. Always leave time to review what you have written. Read your essay silently in your head as you check it.
