I’m happy to report that the Web version of our guide to the integrated essay has now been updated to match the content of the video version. This means that the article now has new templates and new sample paragraphs. It also includes all of the special vocabulary and grammar tips I mentioned in the video.
I’m working on the 2017 edition of our guide to the independent essay, meanwhile. That should go online in just a few days, so keep an eye on the YouTube channel!
For the first time in ages, I have uploaded a new sample essay. You can find it in the usual spot. The questions are taken from a Korean book (Hacker’s Actual Test) that you probably can’t find, but it does demonstrate the required structure and templates.
That will probably be my last sample integrated essay, as I am working on other stuff right now. I plan to upload a sample independent essay in the next day or two and then write some guides to things like grammar and vocabulary.
Also: I have reopened the old TOEFL Resources Forum and I will providing a few free evaluations each week. These will be at the same level as our paid evaluations, so stop by today if you need some help getting ready for the test.
