Answer:

I believe there are three steps to achieving a higher score in TOFEL -- 1) understand your current test results i.e. what are areas you excel at and should maintain along with what areas you need to focus working on, 2) come up with a strategy to work on the areas that you are not as strong at, 3) consistently track your progress as you work through those areas. As an experienced test taker and TOFEL taker of 3 times, I would love to help you to come up with a few straight forward strategies to help you improve and tailored to your situation.

Answer:

I believe the first step to improving your conversational English skills is by finding someone who you feel comfortable speaking the language to and it certainly helps if you enjoy their company by sharing a hobby or specific interest. The reason I suggest that is the best way to improve your conversational English skills is to practice and make mistakes that will help you along the way. As it is quite hard to do so, it's important to practice with someone who is patient and makes you feel comfortable to talk to. Having a shared interest with that person helps even more as that will motivate you to go deeper in a certain subject which will allow you to explore using vocabulary you have never used before.
