Hi dhafir,

First of all, welcome to LearnEnglish - we're really glad that you found us! There is no magic bullet for learning English or improving your test results without work, but the good news is that with persistent effort, most people can improve quite a lot.

What do you most need to improve? If, for example, you need to improve your listening and speaking, I would suggest that you try the Elementary Podcasts or Big City Small World. Start with the first episode and listen to the audio once or twice to see how much you understand. Then you can refer to the transcript to help you understand difficult phrases, and also look up words and expressions that you don't know in the dictionary. Try to pronounce some of the more useful or new vocabulary just as they do in the recording. Finally, there are also plenty of exercises related to the episodes.

As for test preparation, be sure to look through our IELTS section, where you'll find a good introduction to the exam and its different parts. We don't have any materials specific to the TOEFL, but you can find plenty by doing an internet search on it.

And whenever you have a question, please don't hesitate to ask us.

Best wishes,
