By the way, please remember that you'll be using an American (qwerty) keyboard for the TOEFL. There are some important differences compared with the German keyboard (qwertz), especially in regard to some symbols -> " , ' etc.

In the revised Bulletin for 2001 - 2002, ETS listed 183 Writing Topics (click on the link to see the whole list). These are the types of topics that appear in the Independent Writing task.

While doing the practice writing assignments in our course you will:

  • practice grammar in context
  • actively practice your vocabulary
  • focus on English paragraph and sentence structure
  • focus on punctuation
  • practice your typing
