  1. The new TOEFL is composed of four parts, namely reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Each part is 30 points, and the entire test questions are 120 points.

    . Different from Old TOEFL, candidates do not need to read the full text before answering, but instead in the process of doing the question. Reading articles in segments.

    It listening level is undoubtedly the key to the success of the new TOEFL. Except for reading, it is inseparable from “listening”. For Chinese candidates, listening is the weak link.
    The effective way to improve the hearing of Chinese candidates is the “hearing method”, that is, to listen to the relevant hearing materials and write down the contents hearing. There are also software specifically used to practice new TOEFL listening, such as the new TOEFL listening to the king software.

The classroom speech lists some arguments to refute the arguments and arguments in the article. Subsequently, candidates were required to write a composition in 20 minutes to summarize the arguments and arguments of classroom speech, and state how these arguments and arguments refute the arguments and arguments of the article. The number of words is between 150 words and 225 words. When writing, the article will be displayed on the screen. This composition does not require candidates to explain their views.
