Compound Sentences: TOEFL Grammar Guide

New today is a guide to using compound sentences in your TOEFL Type Two essays.  As I always tell my private students, you need to use both simple and compound sentences in your essays.  The e-rater is programmed to recognize sentences of both types.  Even if your grammar is strong, you won’t get a high score if you write only simple sentences.

The guide includes a short explanation of what a compound sentence is, as well as a definition of what a conjunction is.  Most importantly, it provides a ton of example sentences drawn from actual TOEFL essays (which are linked).
