The TOEFL writing section has two parts:

  • First is the TOEFL integrated essay. You will read an article and a lecture on the same topic. The lecture will challenge the argument made in reading. Your essay must explain how the lecture casts doubt on the reading.  You will be given twenty minutes to write your essay. You should write about 280 to 300 words.
  • Second is the TOEFL independent essay. You are asked your opinion on a topic related to a personal, academic or professional issue.  You have thirty minutes to write an essay about it. You should write about 380 to 400 words.
