Готовимся к TOEFL: 25 тем для письменной части

Список вопросов для TOEFL Independent Essay в помощь всем, кто начал подготовку к этому экзамену и поступлению в зарубежный вуз.



Одно из двух заданий TOEFL Writing Section предполагает, что вы изложите свою позицию на предложенную тему в форме эссе объемом не меньше 300 слов. Формулировка темы предлагает выбрать одну из двух альтернатив (Do you agree or disagree…?) или что-то одно из множества (What is your favorite…? Explain why).

Важно не только сделать выбор, но и аргументировать его. Хорошо структурированное эссе должно состоять из введения, трех абзацев, каждый из которых содержит одну мысль или один аргумент в защиту избранной позиции, и заключения. На то чтобы написать и проверить эссе, на экзамене у вас будет 30 минут.

Эта задача кажется невыполнимой, если ее нужно решить с первого раза. Но ключ к тому, чтобы сдать TOEFL на максимальный балл, – подготовка. Если вы включите таймер и напишете эссе в таком формате по крайней мере 25 раз, то, поверьте, ваше 26-е, экзаменационное, эссе будет безупречным.

Чтобы помочь вам в этом важном деле, мы подготовили 25 тем для письменной части TOEFL. Открывайте чистый лист текстового редактора, засекайте 30 минут и за дело!
