Build vocabulary for the TOEFL Test


  • Intermediate English
  • Commitment to learn


Your understanding of what you read and hear is, to a very large degree, determined by your vocabulary, so improve your vocabulary daily.

-- Zig Ziglar

You can't build up a vocabulary if you never meet any new words. And to meet them you must read. The more you read the better.

-- Rudolf Flesch and Abraham Lass

Words are important. If you cannot say what you mean, you will never mean what you say. And you should always mean what you say.

Paraphrased from the film, The Last Emperor written by Mark Peploe & Bernardo Bertolucci
