How To Find The TOEFL Testing Center In Your Area


Where The Hell Is The Testing Center!?!?

Where The Hell Is The Testing Center!?!?


People trying to find The Official TOEFL Testing Center in their area (Country, and City) is a very serious and important part of the process of taking The TOEFL iBT Exam.

The fact that this was the single biggest reason for receiving emails from people all around the world, and that responding to those emails, previously, took up most of my time, is the reason why I took nearly a year to collect and publish all of the official testing centers throughout the world, as given by the official website.

Yes, the official website does give this information, but the problem is – to get this information, one first needs to actually start the registration process to get it.  I don’t know who would actually spend the money to register for the exam before finding out where they actually have to take the damn thing, but I certainly wouldn’t!

I am not exactly sure why the organization that created and administers The TOEFL iBT Exam, makes it so difficult to find this information but don’t worry…  GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! has got you covered. 😉


So Where Is My TOEFL Testing Center?

A Quick Update

TOEFL Excellence Update


For those of you out there who are following things here at TOEFL Excellence, you may have noticed that I haven’t posted anything for a little while.

This is simply from being a bit overwhelmed with bureaucracy and with doing a lot of “Spring Cleaning” between all of the GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!  Websites.

But luckily, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  The technical problems with the software for the TOEFL Excellence Training System is finished, and now I have been able to get back on track with content.


Projections


It’s hard to give an “accurate” estimate on when the first downloadable package will be ready, and making promises on the internet that one can not or does not deliver is much more of an “un-forgiveable act” than in “real” life, but the first two parts of the three-part package are basically finished.  This package will be aimed at those people who are completely new to the TOEFL iBT Exam and need to know what the first steps that they need to take will be.  It will be for a free download, and I will keep you all updated as to it’s development.


In the mean-time, don’t forget to check out the other posts about The TOEFL iBT Exam, and about lots of other useful and entertaining subjects pertaining to learning English.

P.S.  I almost forgot…  If you haven’t already, do not forget to sign up for a discount on the TOEFL Excellence Training courses, when they do come out.  You can sign up Here.

A few weeks back, I started The TOEFL Excellence YouTube Channel.  Much of The TOEFL Excellence Training System will be done with videos, so it only makes sense that TOEFL Excellence should also have its YouTube Channel as well.

The reason that I did not want to promote this video earlier is that – until a couple days ago – it was the only video created, and I didn’t want to shoot myself in the foot by promoting something for-which the follow-up was not even conceived yet.

But since that has now happened…  Well, here it is. 😉

TOEFL Vocabulary #5 – “Educate” (Functional TOEFL Vocabulary)

Educate Yourself - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

The Word “Educate”

Educate Yourself - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

“Educate” – (/EH-dʒə-kay[t]/ – /ˈɛ.dʒə.ke[t]/) [dynamic verb]…


  • “(to) Educate (one’s self or an other) is to provide or procure information upon any subject – either passively or actively, for the sake of expanding one’s comprehension – and thus – over-all knowledge of either a particular subject or all possible subjects, generally.”

“Dad” – TOEFL Vocabulary #4 (+ Speaking Section – Task One Tip)

The Word “Dad” – TOEFL Vocabulary #4

(“Level-Checking” – (semi-)”Functional” – “Unique Word Transformation” Vocabulary)

Dad - GiveMesomeEnglish!!!


“Dad” – (/dæ[d]/ – /dæ[d]/) [concrete noun]…

“The word ‘Dad’ is a colloquial term for the word ‘Father’.”


[su_dropcap style=”flat”]T[/su_dropcap]he word “Dad” – being the most common colloquial and familiar alternative to the word “Father” in the English language, can be fit into a number of the categories that I have included into The TOEFL Vocabulary Database.

  • It functions as “Level-Checking” Vocabulary, because the chances that one who is preparing for The TOEFL iBT Exam has not yet heard of, or knows, this word are quite low…  yet, if it happens, then this is a good indication that that person’s “Level” is not yet high enough for The TOEFL iBT Exam, and there-fore, also not high enough to excel in a University-type setting.  Additionally, it will be unconsiciously expected that a person in both situations – absolutely – will know this word…  Thus the term “Level-Checking”.
  • It functions as (semi-) “Functional” Vocabulary, because the chances that a person will hear this word in a question on the exam may happen – but more likely, the fact that a person may USE this word in his or her answer in the Independent Speaking Section, and Writing Section answers is quite high.  However, I use the prefix “semi-” because the person does not NEED to use this term.  If one wishes to mention his or her “Dad”, then that person can always say “Father”, “Papa”, or whatever else is more common from where that person comes from.
