TOEFL TIP: Exercises to Improve Your Writing

Read one lengthy article in English from a magazine or a website every day.

  • Outline the article.
  • Write a summary of it in English as quickly as you feel comfortable.
  • Ask your teacher to review your summary to see if your sentences are grammatically correct and if your sentences and vocabulary accurately express the ideas from the original source.
  • If you are writing many short, simple sentences, try to combine related ideas into more lengthy, complex sentences.

Build your English writing skills with Writing in English — a powerful learning program from AmEnglish® and ETS®. You will learn to write more clearly and concisely and also sharpen your grammar and syntax skills.
