The way TOEFL is set up, there is no way to get a high score without actually learning the language, although taking some practice tests usually does help.

I'm thinking of setting up a site to help Chinese people learn English, but it would be such a basic site that I dont' think it would be of much help to you.

yeah i agree with Mrs. aljensen. In fact, any exam need pratices before take it. i have never take an TOEFL exam in my life. But, i took an ILTES exam..

first exam : i failed and i got 4.5 << i didn't even know how the exam will gonna to be.

second one : i got 5 << after a little pratice.

the third time: i got the mark which i needed it with 5.5 << after i kill myself in practices looool :P finally…

Aaljensen ..i disagree with you in that website can teach. OF course people can learn from it. yet, the main thing now wintoborn is to know how the exam will gonna to be? and to find an english teacher to teach you….

i will ask my sister about this exam coz she took it many times and try to find some important iformation which i hope to help you…

;) GOOD LUCK friend …

 Wintoborn – I would say you need to practice listening, that is basically the heart and soul of the TOEFL test.

Getting scholarships to the university might be difficult, but you could look for Chinese-American organizations that would help pay for your studies, or else look for other NGOs and things.

Also, if you are a graduate student who can do productive work for the university (such as work as a research assistant) they will be more likely to give you a free ride – i.e. a scholarship.

You want to go to the US for a doctorate?

I did toefl ibt test last year and i got 92. Looking back that time, the only thing i needed is time. You need to practice more, everyday, and everytime. That's all. I'm moving to the US next few months, and toefl is a good point to help me start over again. I'm going to learn Pharmacy and i know toefl is just a condition. All you need is a brave heart and to work hard. Honestly, speaking is the toughest section. I speak well but just got 19 in real test. Listening is essential and needs practice daily.
