      What are the differences between TOEFL and IELTS? Which countries prefer to accept TOEFL scores, and which countries prefer to accept IELTS scores? When students are not sure what school they want to apply to and what country they want to go to, which one is better?

      一般安排半年左右的时间准备托福。托福的生僻词汇,需要时间积累。从天文地理到各行各业,专业词汇很多。我感觉ETS的出题思路是关乎科技、生物、化学、天文这类的知识更符合美国学生的关注点,但对于中国考生就不能不去了解这一些新领域。许多生僻词汇会很大程度提升听力的难度。比如有关地质学的听力考题,即使有所准备,短暂时间记住并写下专业学术其特点,的确不是件易事。托福听力较长的考试时间对耐力要求更高,疲劳度影响会更大。先听后答的模式既考察考生的速记能力和判断力,相比雅思听力25分钟并且先给题目就难了很多。托福听力确实给考生带来许多不符合真是水平的“意外”,以至于发挥失常这种情况时常发生。这些客观事实使得许多考生不得不面临多次考试,比如我准备了2个月的听力,但是真正考试的时候题目非常难,让我2个月的准备时间都白费了。在我看来对于英语基础一般又想尽快出成绩的同学,还是尽量别选择托福。
      It usually takes about half a year to prepare for TOEFL. The rare vocabulary of TOEFL takes time to accumulate. From astronomy and geography to all walks of life, there are many professional vocabulary. I feel that ETS’s thinking about questions is related to science and technology, biology, chemistry, and astronomy, which are more in line with the concerns of American students, but for Chinese candidates, they have to learn about these new areas. Many rare vocabulary will greatly increase the difficulty of listening. For example, for listening exam questions related to geology, even if you are prepared, it is indeed not easy to remember and write down the characteristics of professional academics in a short time. The longer test time for TOEFL listening requires higher endurance, and fatigue will have a greater impact. The listening first and answering model not only examines the shorthand ability and judgment of the candidates, it is much more difficult than IELTS listening for 25 minutes and giving the questions first. TOEFL listening does bring many “accidents” that do not meet the real level of candidates, so that abnormal performance often occurs. These objective facts make many candidates have to face multiple exams. For example, I have prepared for 2 months of listening comprehension, but the questions are very difficult for the real exam, and my 2 months of preparation time was wasted. In my opinion, for students who generally want to get results as soon as possible with basic English, try not to choose TOEFL as much as possible.

Most American colleges and universities require foreign students to submit certain standard TOEFL test scores when applying for admission. Since its establishment in 1964, more than 20 million people have applied for the exam. In the past, it was a paper-and-pencil test, but later changed to a computer test. Recently, it has been changed to an online test. Students need to pay for the test. ETS branches in various countries are responsible for holding regular tests in major cities. In addition, some institutions such as governments, licenses, commercial organizations, or scholarship programs may require the results of this test. The results are valid for two years, after which there will be no further notice.

      The TOEFL test is an American English test, and the IELTS test is a British English test. The TOEFL test is made by Americans, so it is based on American English, so it is completely standard American pronunciation in TOEFL listening. American idioms and slang also appear from time to time, and there are a lot of American history, culture, and politics. , Geography and other aspects. As for the IELTS test, since the test authorities are mainly based in Britain and Australia, the pronunciation in listening is trying to be international, which means that the accents of all countries will be expressed, but the English and Australian pronunciation are the main ones, and the reading is often The cultural and geographical knowledge involved is mostly in these two countries. At present, the trend of social English learning is mainly American English, and speaking a standard American accent is even more envied by most people. From this point of view, the TOEFL test undoubtedly has certain advantages. The advantage of taking the IELTS test is that as long as you have money and don’t need a high score, you can go to a famous university in the UK. It is easy to go out for the IELTS test, but it is very expensive. The TOEFL+GRE test is difficult, but there is a great possibility that you can win the full prize!
      托福考试是美式英语的考试,雅思考试是英式英语的考试。托福考试是美国人出题,所以它以美式英语为基准,因此在托福听力中完全是标准的美音,美式的习语、俚语也时有出现,更有大量的关于美国的历史、文化、政治、地理等方面的内容。而雅思考试由于考试当局是以英、澳两国为主,因此在听力中发音力图做到国际化,也就是说各国口音都会有所表现,但以英、澳发音为主,其中的阅读经常涉及的文化地理知识以这两国居多。现在社会英语学习的潮流以美式英语为主,而说一口标准的美音,则更是被大多数人所羡慕,从这一点来说,托福考试无疑具有一定的优势。考雅思的好处是只要你有钱,不需要很高的分数就可以去英国的著名大学读书。考雅思出去容易,但很花钱。考托福+GRE艰辛,但有很大的可能可以拿全奖!

      1. All schools in the United States that can admit international students accept TOEFL, and 95% of schools accept IELTS. 2. Different English learning habits, TOEFL and IELTS are also different.
      For example, some classmates are used to reading on the computer, and TOEFL is not a problem for him/her. However, the reading habit of most fresh and current students is to read on paper, so the reading speed of IELTS will be faster. 3. Candidates all know that the oral TOEFL is to communicate with the computer when answering questions, while the oral IELTS is actually a face-to-face chat. If you have an outgoing personality, are good at using your facial expressions and body language to communicate with people, and have no sense of rejection or fear towards strangers, which is what we commonly call self-acquaintance, I strongly recommend you to take the IELTS test.
      一、美国可以招收国际学生的全部学校都接受托福,95%的学校接受雅思。二、英语学习习惯的不同,考托福考雅思也是有区别的。
      例如有的同学习惯在电脑上阅读,托福对他/她就不是问题。但是大部分应届、在校学生的阅读习惯是在纸上阅读,因此雅思的阅读速度就会更快。三,考生都知道托福的口语是对着电脑在做答题时交流,而雅思的口语实际上就是一种面对面的聊天。如果你性格外向,有比较善于发挥自己的面部表情和身体语言和人交流,对待陌生人没有排斥感,没有恐惧感,也就是我们俗称的自来熟,强烈建议您去考雅思。
