can I practice for TOEFL?
The computer-based TOEFL
exam was introduced in 1998. It is a mixture of
question types from the paper-based test and new question
The Computer-Based TOEFL Test
has 4 sections: Listening,
Structure, Reading and Writing. The listening and structure
sections are "computer adaptive." This means the first
question is of medium difficulty. If you answer it correctly,
the next item will be of similar or greater difficulty.
If you answer a question incorrectly, the next one will
be easier. TOEFL is very flexible in terms of structure.
The length of each section and the time allocated varies.
At the beginning of the section, the length and the
number of questions is given.
grammar exercises can help you learn English and

Section 2: Structure and
This section of the TOEFL test measures your ability
to recognise grammar and language that is appropriate
for standard written English. It does not have a fixed
number of questions, as the number of questions you
are given depends on the number of your correct answer.
However, in total there are about 20-25 questions and
the time allowed is between 15-20 minutes. There are
two types of questions in this section and the two types
of questions alternate.
The first type of questions consists of incomplete
sentences - "fill in the blank" grammar questions. Beneath
each sentence are four words or phrases. You will choose
the one word or phrase that best completes the sentence.
The second type of question has four underlined words
or phrases - "identify the error " questions. You choose
the one underlined word or phrase that must be changed
for the sentence to be correct.
The language tested is formal, rather than conversational
English. The topics of the sentences are associated
with academic discourse. As all our ESL lessons are
based on topical news stories, they make excellent TOEFL
practice materials. We have many different types of
online grammar exercises that give you instant feedback
