TOEFL Tip #29: Understanding Difficult Sentences

by Strictly English TOEFL Tutors on April 6, 2009

If you are trying to understand a difficult sentence in one of the reading passages, just read the sentence’s independent clause. Independent clauses are usually called the “main clause” because they contain the sentence’s main idea. Once you understand the main clause, you can better understand why the other dependent clauses are in the sentence and how the information in the dependent clauses relates to the information in the main clause.
