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.
