 5000 TOEFL Vocabulary List
1   Overview:
This TOEFL vocabulary list has 5000 words. It shows definitions and sample sentences for each word. Meanwhile, it offers word status management to help to study and review its words. Besides, each word has matching and spelling interactive online exercises and printable flashcards, and the PDF TOEFL word list.

5000 TOEFL vocabulary list is available for VIP accounts to access the full content. Free users may evaluate its content and feature by the 1st group.

Building vocabulary is one of the hardest jobs to prepare for any English test. If you will take the TOEFL test in months, but you didn't develop any TOEFL vocabulary yet, the first of first is to get a proven vocabulary and work on it immediately. This 5000 TOEFL vocabulary list is an excellent candidate to own TOEFL words quickly.

What we provide here isn't only a word list; it is integrated with modern information technology to let you learn and review TOEFL words more efficiently. For most test-takers, the proven TOEFL vocabulary can cover all test sections' requirements, from listening to reading.

We divide the words into 4 levels; each level consists of 4 groups. If you are interested in the words of all groups (1-16) of this 5000 TOEFL word list, watch them here.



TOEFL vocabulary will heavily impact your final test score. If you cannot set your goal or have any confusion related to vocabulary building, please visit TOEFL Official Website to get more information.
2   Other TOEFL vocabularies:
The 5000 TOEFL vocabulary list is particularly useful when test day is coming, and you are planning to review TOEFL words in a very narrow time frame. In such a scenario, the list and its convenient and straightforward practice tools will help you prepare TOEFL vocabulary in fast paces.

Although we believe the TOEFL vocabulary list is a primary option for serious test takers, we never think one vocabulary can handle all test takers' cases. We do offer other TOEFL vocabularies on the website. If you feel this word list doesn't match your circumstance, please spend some time to get the right one.

Here we recommend three other vocabularies.

If 5000 TOEFL vocabulary looks too tough, or your schedule is very tight, you have two easier options:

TOEFL Writing Vocabulary: A TOEFL vocabulary consists of 6 groups, has example sentences and explanations in multiple languages. It helps very much to enrich writing vocabulary.

TOEFL Words with Synonyms: A list has 600 TOEFL words with definitions, synonyms, extra definitions in 8 languages. It's an ESL-friendly list for reading tests.

For those who are challenging the top universities, they need stronger vocabulary skill. The 6000 TOEFL vocabulary list is an excellent supplement, which has 1000+ words that are based on 5000 TOEFL vocabulary list, low frequency but useful in academic readings.
