What can I do to prepare for my TOEFL test, I don't have much time!
Focus on conversation. Don't learn individual words, rather look at word groupings. Practice with a tutor and ask for their guided help. Don't learn for the test, learn for yourself. You will learn more, and you'll pass the test faster.
Subject: Study Skills
I study hard, but the results don't match the effort I put in, What is the key?
Many times, it my be external factors rather than then your ability. Our environment, distractions and learning methods may be the cause. If those are well maintained and regulated, studying for subject or exams though still hard, become easier.
Subject: English as a Second Language
I have been studying English for years now, what can I do to see actual improvements?
Most student put in a lot of effort into learning English. It is not easy but there are tips. The biggest one is to SPEAK. Not just in a class or when you are studying but in daily life. Set a goal to speak only English for 20 minutes a day. Within a week you will see improvements in your language skills.
