The Only TOEFL Vocabulary You Actually NEED To Know

I have stated numerous times in my group and private sessions, and have written in different blog posts, that one does not need to study vocabulary for the TOEFL iBT Exam.  And this is still true…  However, there is a certain amount of vocabulary that one absolutely NEEDS to know, to be able to successfully navigate his or her way through the exam and to be able to do well on all of the different sections of the exam.

And this vocabulary has nothing to do with the different topics that will be presented in the Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing Sections.  Instead, the vocabulary I’m referring to is the Functional Vocabulary needed to comprehend the directions of the different tasks – and that of a person who is at at least an Intermediate Level of English Skills (B1, B2 Level), in order to fulfill the Speaking and Writing tasks.

All words in the lists below are linked to the entry on The Pronunciation Portal of GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! – And there, each word is linked to its entry on Wiktionary.org…  (the only on-line dictionary I use.)


 

(Not every word in the lists will be within The Reading and Listening Sections of the exam, but may appear in the directions, or are of a level of vocabulary which is expected to be at a University level…  See This Post for further explanation.)
