Especially when students are studying in their home country or in enclaves of their home culture, they must seek out opportunities to listen to the English language. In the test, they listen to an audio recording, so listening to tapes and CDs of people speaking English is an excellent resource. Students can get books on tape from the library or seek out recordings of lectures. Radio and the Internet also provide opportunities to hear spoken English. As preparation for the TOEFL, though, students should restrict themselves to listening to a passage only one time as this is the test format.
