I gave a small talk about how to get high performance at the TOEFL or IELTS test today. About 20 students attended this event. I emphasized the importance of vocabulary and the usefulness of the CALL materials and smartphone.
I also remembered when I took the TOEFL test or studied at the University of Toronto. It was almost 20 years ago, but that experience made my foundation of research. I met nice people there, indeed. Working for hard is not easy, but important. Good luck to the students who attended the talk.
