Default TOEFL....I will break you down!

Tomorrow is the day.....the TOEFL day a.k.a T-day for me. I would be taking this as a step in realizing my goal of getting into the United States by January 2011.

I am scared, but I am also quite optimistic that I could do it. Break a leg, as they would say.

From years of reading your posts, chatting with you on chat, and the few conversations we had via Skype back in the day, I'd say you're going to ace this thing. Good luck!

Fixed. You get a A-

When will you get your results back?

Good Luck with the test too! I hope you pass it with a perfect score.

Also do you have any questions you want to ask us before you take the test?

Make sure you do not leave anything blank. In addition, if you have a practice CD for the listening section, make sure you practice each part by listening to it only one time and then giving your answer. On the real test you will only hear everything once. You have to train your ears to listen fully the first time.

On the speaking section, it is okay to hesitate for a moment or two when it is time to respond. However, it is best to fill as much of the time as possible with your response. If you have a few extra seconds you can sum things up in a short conclusion. You will lose marks for poor pronunciation, so don't try to use big words that you can't say properly. You will also lose marks for improper use of vocabulary and idioms.

Nope, not really.

Yeah, I decided to use simple words to explain my concepts instead. But sometimes the question give complicated words and I got to say those words.

Happy to help even in a small way. I hope you did good on it. Let us know what your results are when you get them in a few weeks. Honestly I would have never known English was not your primary language, if you had not posted this topic. Because of that I bet you passed with distinction.

Well, the Americans think that due to my country of citizenship, I am just a damn rural hippy from Asia. I speak Cantonese and Malay as well, just for the other languages I do speak frequently but English is my main language of communication.

Well if it is your main language then I bet you did very well on your test. I wish I could pick up a second langauge myself but unless I travel I will never have a use for it. I can drive 1000 km in one direction and will still only need English. I picked up a copy of Rosetta Stone (German) last year. Plan on sinking some time into it some more, but I really wish I knew someone who spoke the langauge.

If I did learn a second Language it would probably have to be Spanish though. I work in the public school system, so if I ever transfer to another region I bet I could get a lot of use out of it.
