The Only TOEFL Vocabulary You Actually NEED To Know


.
I have stated numerous times in my group and private sessions — and also in various blog posts on the topic — that you do not NEED to study Vocabulary for The TOEFL iBT Exam.  And this is still true…  However — there is a certain amount of Vocabulary that you absolutely DO need to know to be able to successfully navigate your way through The Exam — and to be able to do well on all of the different sections of The Exam.

.

Further-more — this Vocabulary does not necessarily have anything to do with the different topics that will be presented in the Reading, Listening, Speaking, & Writing Sections of The TOEFL Exam.  Instead — the Vocabulary that I am referring to is what I call:  “Functional Vocabulary — that-which you will need in-order-to comprehend the directions in the different Questions & Tasks, and in the actual Question-Stems and Reading Passages within the exam.
.

.

This is the Vocabulary that you will be expected to know at an Intermediate Level of English (B1, B2).  This is what you absolutely NEED to know in order to function in an English-Speaking University…  This is also why it is absolutely ridiculous to think that you can succeed by buying a fake TOEFL certificate.  You may get into University, but then you will fail because your English skills are not good enough. 😎

.

All words in the lists below are linked to their entries on The Pronunciation Portal Of GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! — And there, each word is linked to its entry on Wiktionary.org…  (the only on-line dictionary that I recommend.)
.

.

Not every word in these lists will actually be found within The Exam.  But they may appear In The Directions.  And they are all at a level of English Vocabulary which is expected that you should alread know before entering an English-Speaking University.
