Speaking and Wrting Strategies for TOEFL
SPEAKING AND WRITING STRATEGIES FOR THE TOEFL iBT
Increase your TOEFL iBT score by increasing your speaking and writing scores.
How? By using the strategy called argument mapping. Why argument mapping? Because the TOEFL iBT speaking and writing sections are all argument-based tasks.
That means if you want high speaking and writing scores, you must know how to map out (develop and deliver) spoken and written arguments, quickly and proficiently. With argument mapping, you will be able to do just that.
Best of all, you can apply argument mapping to all six speaking tasks and both writing tasks. That means you will spend less time reading about strategies and more time practicing them.
