What about TOEIC ?
Please give me more details ?
Thanks !


    TOEIC is quite a different exam. It does not test academic English at all, but rather general and business English used in the workplace.

    It is much easier than any of the TOEFL or IELTS exams, in terms of level of difficulty in English.

    TOIEC is used more as a pre-employment screening test so employers can be assured that a candidate has at least a functional understanding of English required in the business world.

    You could learn more about the TOEIC through my website:

Miriam Sena de Santana

    Thanks. Miriam. I have been speaking English all my life and that certainly helps!


Thank you for all the lessons
Your lessons are great so they hlep us to improve our English,but I have some problems.
1/ In my country people don’t speak English so what I learn every day I Always forget because I don’t use it .
What should I do ?
please answer my question.


    I understand your difficulty. Actually, that’s why thousands of students travel to English-speaking countries to improve their English. In that environment, they can make quick progress and save years of English learning.

    In the meantime, you need to find a teacher or friend with whom you can practice speaking. That is the only way to make a breakthrough.

    You can also listen to English news channels, movies, songs, etc. That will improve your comprehension and vocabulary.

    All the best to you. If you decide to come to Canada to improve your English, we would be happy to have you.


      Thank you so much my teacher Rebecca
      but how can I come to Canada?


      I beg your pardon miss:

Hi your video is very useful. As I found you very expert, I would like to ask a question . I dont want to take any of these tests. I just want to speak english fluently in my workplace and I would like to have a vocabulary skill needed for this purpose. there are lots of vocabulary books but I dont know which to read to master simple vocabulary needed for speaking english fluently.I cant read all of the books and I want tow to three books to read and revise constantly
Thanks in advance


I understand your situation. You may find the following books useful:

For general business English:

Business Vocabulary in Use

For specialized areas of business:


These resources should help. Of course, there are also many websites which can help you improve your command of business English.

Another approach is to look for books which offer TOEIC vocabulary , as the TOEIC is an exam of English used in the workplace.

I wish you the best with your English studies and your career. From your message, it is clear that your level of English is already high. All the best as you progress to even higher levels.


Hi rebecca Thank you for your guidance.
The last word I want to say is that I am highly interested in American english. The books you suggested to me are written in British( except TOEIC). furthermore, I would like to use informal english not formal.
Could you please introduce some books for this purpose and tell me the name of the most comprehensive books in TOEIC vocab.
Thank you very much for all your useful help.

Mohsin ul haq


    Thanks for your comments. You can improve your English in many ways on your own. However, if you want to appear for the IELTS, it’s best to join a good exam preparation class so you can learn a variety of exam strategies.

    Please take a look at my website http://www.goodluckielts.com for some useful information, tips, writing samples and so on.

    All the best to you.


I love this website very much,it is really useful!


Many thanks!


useful lesson for anyone who intend to learn TOEFL or IELTS. However, from my experiences, I think that IELTS is easier than TOEFL at all. Taking IELTS will be familiar with your work or your life. whereas TOEFL need you to get an academic level which I think quite difficult compared to IELTS.


    Thanks for passing on your opinion. Actually, there are two IELTS exams – the academic version and the general version. The academic is more challenging, in the reading and writing aspects.

    I agree that the TOEFL helps to prepare you for university-level academic life more effectively, because it forces you to use a variety of skills that you will need once you are there.

    Which exam is easier really depends on each individual’s background. Which exam is better depends on each person’s future goals.


Hi Rebecca!, I am from Vietnam and now I want to learn to take an IELTS test. My pre-test score was 4.5 and my goal is 6.0. Please give me some advises and guides so that I can perform my plan?!! Thanks you so much!


    Please visit my website, goodluckielts.com , for helpful hints, strategies and suggestions.

    All the best with your exam!


hi rebecca!, I am from indonesia.
I took the ielts test 4 days ago when in speaking section, I had short spoken with an english man. He asked me a question but at that time I couldnt answer the question as well. I guess, I might not pass the ielts exams.actually the reason why I took the test was to use it to submit to a university because the university requires me to have ielts at least 6.5. could you tell me how to deal and how to improve the speaking and my writing?

tommy ng

    You do really need to prepare and practice to do well on each section of the exam. Could you join an exam preparation class there? You can prepare alone for the listening and reading sections, but you really need the feedback of a teacher for the writing and speaking sections. That’s the best advice I can give you.

    Other than that, there are specific books aimed at helping you improve your IELTS speaking and writing skills, such as those produced by Cambridge University Press.

    Please watch my video on How to Structure Your TOEFL Essay, on this website. It will help you write a great IELTS essay as well.

    You can also visit my website, http://www.goodluckielts.com for sample essays, essay topics, speaking hints and more.

    You can definitely improve so keep at it! All the best to you.


Dear Ms..
thanks for your practical endeavor. Please tell me how can i give a free ielts test online for practice.
Thanks again.


    You could type “free online IELTS test” into google or any other search engine and see what shows up.

    Alternatively, you could get hold a good IELTS exam preparation book, such as those produced by Cambridge Univ Press, which have actual exam papers from previous exams. I would trust them more, for you can rehearse with actual exam samples.

    Thanks for your comments and all the best to you.


hi!teacher!I am a student at university in vietnam.My major is english.you know now i want to get a scholarships because i want to make my parent a pleasure.But my writing skill is’t good so much and I feel very tired when i study it.I should how to do to overcom this subject?!can you give me some advice?thank so much teacher.I hope that I will soon receive from you.


    There are many many ways to improve your English writing. Don’t be afraid. Start small.

    Try to make writing a part of your daily life, by keeping a small diary, or summarizing the news of the day, or writing about a hobby of yours – anything that interests you. You do need to have a teacher who can correct your work and guide you.

    There are also many resources, online and in books, which can help you improve.

    For essays, please watch my video on How to Structure Your TOEFL Essay. It will give you some easy strategies to improve your writing quickly.

    You can also read through some sample essays on my websites, goodlucktoefl.com and goodluckielts.com.

    Make better writing your goal for the year and do lots of practice. In academic life, our grades are based mainly on written assignments and papers so it is worth the effort to improve in this area.

    All the best to you.

Dear Ms. Rebecca

Hello Rebecca!
I’m from Burma. I am thinking to sit IELTS on coming March but I feel like I’m not ready to sit the exam yet! I really need to practice more in writing skill. I searched in the internet about test 2 writing samples but I haven’t found a good site yet. Could you help me to guide me in that? I couldn’t watch your video because our internet connection in here is so slow…
so… Can i have a script of that video?
Thanks in advance! :)


    Sorry we can’t provide the script but you could check my IELTS website for lots of writing and speaking samples and advice on how to do well on the IELTS exam. My best wishes to you, Raven

hello Rebecca,
thank you a lot for your lessons!
please help me, i want to study in canada and i have not a proof language, they ask me to proove by a test , what can i do, for exemple for TOEFL, or other test? and can i pass this test online?


    You will need to do the TOEFL or IELTS most likely. Check with the university you are interested in joining to see which exams they accept. Then, join an exam preparation class or get hold of an exam preparation guide so you know what to expect and how to answer the questions to get a high score. You will need a live or online teacher to give you feedback on your speaking and writing. All the best to you, Hobito.


Thank you for everything that you want to help everyone in all over the world to learn English. I think you are very patient and kind hearted. If you were not so you would not help too many people

Azerbaijan- it is my country

    Thanks kindly.


this is my first time i am watching this engvid website.it is very helpful 4 me.i am a university student. i stil not good in english and i wan improve my engliah communicatioan skill. what s fundamental things i should do to improve my english skill?please help me Ms.rebecca…..thank you so much.


    Welcome to engVid! Please read through my replies to various questions here as I have discussed how to improve your speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills. The only way to improve your English is to use it as much as possible, but you must also have someone who is present to check it or correct it. Otherwise, you will develop the habit of saying things in the wrong way. Watch the videos here and online as they can teach you a lot. All the best to you, Lingam.


hi Rebecca thank you so much it was very helpful><
and i would like to ask a bout the IELTS because i applied for an american university and they want as least 5.0 in IELTS and now i already studying English here in Boston and my level is intermediate so how long time i will be ready to get this score in your opinion?
and my friends told me that the TOEFL is little bit harder and i discovered that now in this video
thank you again
best regards


    I cannot say how long it will take you to prepare because each person learns at a different speed. However, if you are already in Boston, it will help because you are surrounded by English already. Of course, on the IELTS you will hear British accents mostly. The best way to know if you are ready for the IELTS, is to do several practice exams and check your score. Analyze your errors and work on improving your strategy for answering those kinds of questions. All the best, Loukman.


thank you very much, i learned lot of thing from your lessons. now i can manage little bit of english.


    Good for you! Keep watching and all the best to you, Dhanu.


Thank you very much Rebeca. I’m Orlando from Brazil.
I studied English in Canada in 2008, but I feel like I am forgetting the language. This website is very useful to keep learning and not forget it.
I intend to aply for IELTS after wachting your lesson.



    All the best, Orlando.


hello rebecca,
i do need some help could you tell me how can i enhance my speaking??

thank you…!


    Speaking is challenging because it brings together so many skills at one time – grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, listening and so on. There are many ways to improve. Try to join a Conversational English class if possible or find a good private teacher.You could also look for an online teacher or class. For the TOEFL or IELTS exams, complete the speaking practice sections of many exam preparation books. Your speaking will improve when you speak more and can be corrected by someone who knows English well. No other choice! All the best to you.


helloo every body…


hi I am a professional chemical engineer.I am going to appear in ielts.Can you send me some important letters and General writing topics if you feel easy.




I want to know about British English and nois of America. Which ones do most of people in the world use in the conversation or writing?
Sorry, my English is bad.
please answer me.


    Both are used and you can learn either one without worrying too much. If you are trying to choose, then decide based on where you might be traveling, living, studying or working. All the best Jack.


thank you very much for your effort.
by the way what is the difference between
effort and affort
I’m waiting your answer as soon as possible.


    Affort is slang, according to the urban English dictionary, and means an excellent effort. However, it is not used often. I would not use it in regular English as many people might think you are simply making a mistake. I would certainly not use it in any academic exam or paper. You can always use the word effort without any such worry.


Can you tell me how can I speak english well? I know what I must say but I am always shy so my performances are not perfect. And I don’t know how to make listeners believe in what I am talking.
Thanks in advance
Ah you are really good

little robber

    It would be helpful to work with a private teacher if possible to improve your skills, or to find and English-speaking friend who can correct any mistake you make. Be confident and proud of whatever you know and go forward with a friendly smile. Most people will appreciate the effort you are making to speak well. Take some conversation classes if possible and finally, take a class in English Presentation Skills. It will be scary at first, but you will improve a lot very quickly and gain a lot of confidence in yourself. All the best to you, little robber!


      thanks for answering, I will take a class in English Presentation Skills after I finish high school next year and get university. I have some friends in France and of course they speak English. A friend of mine’s mother has passed away and I want to share with him. can you tell me how I can I write to him to encourage him not to be so sad? The most general way in English

      little robber

Thank’s for your lessons and for this great web site that helps people from all the world to learn english.
By i’m interesting why do Canada immigration programs requires IELTS test which is “british english” test. Why not TOEFL whish is “american” one.
I guess you understand my question. (Sorry for mistakes if i did any)


    Good question. I cannot say why they chose this exam. I agree, we do not speak British English here in Canada, or have British accents. Good luck with your English, Nickolay.


      IELTS is not a test of British English, it is a test of international English and is proven by the fact the teams of item writers (exam writers) work in 5 regions of the world producing the test (Australian, UK, USA, New Zealand & Canada). Any standard form of language/spelling is permitted whether US or British (i.e. specialise/specialize). Pronunciation is assessed as to how much it interferes with communication, not how close it is to a particular accent. There are many native speakers with very strong accents that would not be clear on an international stage, and many non-natives with much clearer accents. See http://www.ielts.org/pdf/IELTSQualityFairnessBrochure_2012.pdf – The international English language test on page 6

    Thanks. There are many ways to improve your listening skills for the TOEFL. Do as many practice listening exercises as possible. Make sure you know how to take good and fast notes. Use abbreviations and symbols to take notes more quickly. Work on one type of listening exercise at a time, master that and then move on to the other, step by step. For example, start with the campus conversation and move to the academic lecture last, as it is more challenging. Watch American shows, news and movies for recreation to get accustomed to the accent and expressions used. Learn common campus vocabulary, which will help you understand the conversations more easily. Also, familiarize yourself with the different types of questions which appear in the listening section so you know how to answer them. All the best to you, Jagadeesh.




I was just wondering what the English part of Canada requires ? You’re great


    Not sure what you mean. To move to Canada, you may be asked to take the IELTS exam. Is that what you mean? However, we do not speak British English in Canada. The Canadian accent is quite neutral and clear, and we use Canadian English, which has elements American & British English, as well as some of its own characteristics. If you are studying, you can learn any type of English and use it all over the world without worrying about the details. Good luck.

Hi Rebecca. Thanks a lot for all your lessons they are very useful. I want to ask you about GRE test, can you say anything about it? Is it so important or it’s just a formal test for applicants for entering to university? I ask because the math excercise part of the test is easy, but the words in GRE are very difficult and as i suppose they have no logical connection to mathematics.
Hope you will answer in my question.
Thanks in advance.

Dear Rebecca
thanks a lot for these useful lessons; however, I want you to clear stuff more if you don’t mind. You see I am a Canadian and from Toronto too but because of my fathers work we had to move to a foreign country which doesn’t speak English at all, and now I am nearly through with high school and getting I am getting ready for collage, as I noticed in the video you said that Canadian collages require IELTS. My question comes here:
How come Canadian collages require IELTS and not TOEFL since TOEFL is mostly American speech and IELTS is mostly British, I mean I used to speak American when I was in Canada, and you guys speak American too. My second question is if its IELTS do you have any tips for me because I speak American and I have already taken a TOEFL course which means I will have some problems learning IELTS


I just found your webside some days ago, it’s interesting, helpful!


Hey Rebecca.

I have to show my TOEIC results to CNO for Nursing registration. They have only asked to have 720 scores wid 350 in reading and listening each.Its not mentioned whether i have to show my speaking toeic results. So should i go for listening and reading test only.
I have already an IELTS score of 7, so scoring 350 in reading and listening in TOEIC would be fine for me or not.



Thank you so much.


Dear Rebecca;
I m an english teacher and you always answer the questions I encounter in my classes.Thank you very much for this video and for all the others..

Hello, Ms. Rebecca. Good evening. I’m from Indonesia, and I’m writing this comment in the evening. Ha ha…:)

Well, Canadian English pronunciation sounds similar to that of American English. I thought you’re an American. But you’re from Canada actually. Is there any difference between American and Canadian English?


Dear Rebecca, thank you so much for clear explanation of these exams.


    I think you speak Uzbek language as well. If so, then you are a multilingual one.

Hello, you teach very well. I appreciate that.
Do I have to speak British with the examiner in the IELTS exam? I would rather speak American English. Am I allowed to do that?

I have done some researches on the internet and i have fond the Columbia University in New York City like the most convenient one for me. That’s because i need financial aid. Is that possible in this university? Also i read that the TOEFL was a mandatory criteria. Is that enough?

Hi Rebecca!

Thank you for the lesson.

I have a question. I’ve noticed that you say the English all the time. As far as I know no article should be used with the languages (when the word ‘language’ is omitted), e.g. I learn English. Am I correct? Please, answer ;)


i would like to ask you 2 questions

1- can tell what is the APTIS ?
2- i’m planning to study CELTA so which exam should i have to do academic ILETS ,general ILETS or TOFEL

Ho! sadly I need to do test obout this topic one more time.


Hi Ma’am Rebecca, would you please write all the important details in the board.
For Example:

North American = English = British
4 hours = Length = 2 and half hours

Your one of my favorite teacher here in EngVid but I’m sorry ma’am cause I’m lacking with your details, the keys words or answers to write it on board. Almost all the Videos you made ma’am I do always get a paper and and pen to write all the words that your are saying because I have difficulty in Oral communications, I prepare written communication when I’m studying. I hope you understand ma’am and do my request. Thank you so much.



By these days I was thinking on this issue TOEFL or IELTS when noticed about your explanation in EngVid. I’d like to express my gratitude for so useful and helpful information that you presented in a so clearly and professional way. Thanks a lot.
