2018 TOEFL Writing Questions and Topics
1   Overview
TOEFL iBT writing section has 2 tasks, the second task is an academic essay. Test takers have 30 minutes to plan, write, and revise the essay. An effective response contains a minimum of 300 words. If less than 300, it is still possibly marked a high score. However, short articles usually cannot express your views clearly and strongly. So, 300 words length is an important factor for good score.

What you write is a typical small academic essay in response to a question that asks you to express and support your ideal on a specified topic. In an actual test, the essay would be scored on the quality in three aspects:
  • Development of your ideas
  • Essay organization
  • Quality and accuracy of the language

Development of your ideas Don’t use large section of introduction and summary paragraphs to increase the number of words. Provide enough views, examples, explanations, and reasoning or discussion, your article should reach 300, or even 400.

Essay organization The main points in article must be linked to the central theme by logic.; the article must form a whole to support your idea or conclusion. In order to get good score, you need to avoid redundancy, digression, and unclear connections in article.

Quality and accuracy of the language Showing flexible sentence structure and accurate vocabulary. A few spelling or grammatical errors don’t affect the score, but if the error number goes large, you will lose score very much. If you only use simple or basic words and sentence structure, you cannot get a good score.
