    Integrating skills makes the writing task more challenging for test takers. But does this test really meassure what it claims to meassure?

    A mock exam would be of big help. It will help us to get more familiar with the test format and type of items;not to mention the development of all the necessary skills to cope with this part of the test.

    Useful tips Adam! They provide a clear picture of the TOEFL writing task.

    P.S. By the way, what does iBT stand for?

    Bye for now.

Hi dear Adam. Excellent and exceptional It was. I personally did know plentiful about that however you taught it magnificently. But may you please present a lesson about the third and four skills in TOEFL speaking they are somehow challenging and also make me anxious. Thank you for your humble teaching

Hi Adam. Thanks for sharing this. You are an amazing teacher. I do have one question though. Can we talk about the main points of the lecture and the passage each in two separate paragraphs? I can’t thank you enough for everything!

Profile photo of Maisy Maisy

    Hi Maisy,

    You can do this, but it is better to connect ideas from each together, that way the contrast or support is more immediate. It will also make it easier for you to structure the summary.

    Ultimately, as long as you cover all the main points and o it in a comprehensible way, you’ll be ok :)

Hi Adam! How are you doing? I’ve a question. Could you help me?
– What’s the difference between WALK IT OUT and WALK?
(If I say to somebody WALK IT OUT and other time just WALK will be there any difference?)Which is used commonly in America?
Thank you!

Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

Sorry! Two more!
1 Is there any difference in meaning between:
A. I came yesterday.
B. I had been coming yesterday.

2 Which is right:
A. I have worked at the factory for 20 years.
B. I have been working at the factory for 20 years.
(Which is more grammatically correct?)
Thank you! Bye!

Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

    In textbooks more commonly used “I have worked at the factory for 20 years”, “I have played football for 2 hours” but I think there should be I HAVE BEEN ….

    Profile photo of KATRIN777 KATRIN777

    Hi Katrin,

    I’m not familiar with walk it out, actually. I know walk it off means walk to relieve the pain in your leg or to calm down.

    A. I came yesterday.–correct
    B. I had been coming yesterday.–incorrect (come is not a continuous action)

    A. I have worked at the factory for 20 years.
    B. I have been working at the factory for 20 years

    both are correct and acceptable. If you want to make sure the listener knows you are still working there, use B

Hello Mr. Adam,
A Plenty of thanks for brilliant videos you prepare and publish here. Nowadays I’m preparing myself to get TOFEL internet based test, but I don’t know which kind of accents is better to be followed and speak accordingly (American accent of British accent)? or dose accent has a specific role in order to get more score?

    On the TOEFL you’ll here more North American accents in the listening section, though they are trying to be more global now. On the IELTS you’d hear more British and Australian.

“sth might prove difficult.” is it correct?
If it is correct, why don’t we use passive voice “might be proved difficult”?

    It’s not about someone proving something, it’s about something proving itself (to be) difficult.

Hi Adam! I have been watching your videos for year, and I have leanrt a lot from you. Thank you!!! May I ask a question? I am confused about writing essays. My teacher said it is considered as cheating if I use the sentence from my resource. I was told, I have to read the article and then write an essay with my own word. But how about facts that is given in the article? If I read the article and write essay about that topic it’s still going to be the same. I hope I was able to expain what I mean. If you can can you please make a video about that. What can I use from my source and what I can’t.

I have encountered some problems whilst completing the writing task 1:
