TOEFL®

I just registered to take this TOEFL® (Test of English as a Foreign Language) test today and will take the exam on 17 June... about 1 month from now.
I don't know anything about this... and it's in new system which called iBT or Internet-based Test... I have no clue about it... But I hope I can make it!!!
It costs me US$140... That's a lot!!!
Help me!!!
Pray for me!!!
Cross your fingers for me!!!
Thank you!

Fingers crossed, toes crossed, legs crossed, arms crossed, heart crossed, everything crossed, but I don't think you'd need so much crossing. You're gonna do just swell! But, sooo expensive?!!! Waaaa... ok, crossing eyes for you too.

Oh my... TOEFL!!!

Most of us Indonesian take that test during High School, usually when we are planning to study aboard in the USA.

Any special reason why you are taking TOEFL?

Wish you all the best. With so much of writing in English here, I believe you are steps closer to a pass.

all the best!! i did my IELTS (equivalent to the TOEFL) a few years ago, did u know its only valid for 2 years? after which i need to take the exam again if i need it to register for universities! and it isn't cheap!

Jane said...

@JY: I need some preparation though but hope so!

@J: Yeah.. UK requires IELTS and it's 5,500 baht now to take the test. Actually it's the same price as TOEFL. Thanks...
