TOEFL Tip #9: English Only On Test Day

by Strictly English TOEFL Tutors on January 7, 2009

Switching between languages is hard on the brain, so on test day, wake up and only use English all day until your TOEFL test. If you live with people who speak your language: get out of the house as soon as you wake up. Go to a library and read, or go shopping alone. Just don’t speak any other language besides English.  If you speak another language before your TOEFL test, your brain will be thinking in that language, and it will be hard to switch out of it. Students often pause, can’t think of vocabulary, and say “ummm” a lot when they have spoken another language before their TOEFL test.
