Dynamic TOEFL Test for Vocabulary

Vocabulary is an extremely important asset in English skills. TOEFL test takers have to build a strong vocabulary in preparation; otherwise they have no chance to get a good score in examination. In TOEFL test, there is no an exclusive section to test vocabulary level. But actually all test sections: reading, writing, listening, and speaking, are testing vocabulary skill in separate ways. As in all language tests, without good vocabulary skill cannot have a good mark.

TOEFL is for non-native English speakers who are planning to apply universities or other academic purposes in USA, Canada, and other English countries. For EFL (English as a Foreign Language) people, English vocabulary is a shortcoming in nature. And as an academic-oriented test, TOEFL vocabulary is quite large; if you want to have a high score in test, normally your vocabulary should be as large as 10000 or more.
