Essay Writing Tips for the TOEFL


The TOEFL is the Test of English as a Foreign Language is used to measure English language proficiency. If you are applying to a college or university where English is the language of instruction, your TOEFL scores will help admissions staff determine the adequacy of your English language skills for your program of study. The TOEFL test is also the most accepted test in the world

The Writing Section consists of two different writing tasks:

An Integrated task in which you read a short passage for about 3 minutes and then listen to a short lecture that directly addresses the points made in the reading. You are then required to draft an essay based on the summarization of the listening passage and explain how they relate to the reading passage. This task demonstrates your ability to communicate in writing what you have read and heard about. You have 20 minutes for this task with a word count of 150-200 words

Essay-Writing Tips

Integrated Writing Task

  • Always take notes
  • Look for the main idea of the reading passage
  • While listening, pay attention to any information that is opposite of the points in the reading passage
  •  Your task here is to explain how the points in the listening relate to points in the reading. You are NOT being asked for your own opinion
  •  Ensure that you do not misrepresent the points from the reading and the lecture

Independent Writing Task

  • Understand the given topic. Ensure that you write what the essay is asking of you

    Study & Work in Canada


    From the many countries you can study in, Canada is a hugely popular choice. It’s really not hard to see why. Universities in Canada offer world-class education, with 12 Canadian universities ranked in the Times Higher Education Supplement Top 200. Studying in Canada has many other benefits too: affordable tuition fees, the opportunity to work while you study and for a year after you graduate, and a great lifestyle in a beautiful and diverse country.


    Every step is taken to ensure the safety of students on Canada's campuses. Most Canadian Universities / Colleges have their own campus security 24 hours a day. There are also “Walk Safe" programmes to assist people in getting to public transportation during late hours.

    Work during and after and co-op programe

    Students in Canada are allowed to work off campus without a work permit upto 20 hours per week and full time during vacation. Several programs may even have a paid co-op term where one gets hands on experience in working in the industry. These may even be paid co-ops. Further students on the completion of their program of 1 year can work upto 1 year and students applying for 2 years program can work for 2-3 years.


    When applying for a student authorization you must be able to prove to the visa officer that you have enough finances to support yourself for the entire length of your study program. Full-time students can work in their institutions without the need for an employment authorization. International students can work up to 20 hours per week during their studies and 40 hours per week during vacation. They can earn approximately C$ 7 - C$ 10 per hour. Students can work full time off campus during co-op terms and can earn approximately C$ 10 - C$ 15 per hour, amounting to C$ 400 to C$ 1,000 per month.


    Canada welcomes over 2 lac immigrants per year & has a policy for skilled professionals as well as Business Immigrants. Canada has maintained a strong stable economic growth because of its active immigration policy. Two thirds of the 5.4%pa increase in population is due to immigration.


    Canadian Immigration is one of the simplest immigration systems in comparison with other countries. It allows a person to live and work anywhere in Canada, and confers upon that person a Permanent Resident status. It comes with certain responsibilities and may be revoked if the holder does not meet Canadian Residency obligations, or is found guilty of serious criminal activity. A person who is a Canadian Permanent Resident may apply for Canadian Citizenship after 3 years.
