  • I would like to add my dismay at the poor offering of Toefl material here, considering the importance of the exam for so many students, it is astonishing that onestopenglish have not seen fit to provide more material.

  • As a subscribing teacher I am amazed that there isn't at least one example TOEFL audio along with the lesson plan and tips. It's very misleading to include TOEFL as a subject on your sight and then not to have least one listening example. Surely this could easily be rectified?

  • I am just about to start teaching an intensive course for a student prepping for the TOEFL and am shocked that there is just this here. One activity. And it's been that way for a long time. Onestopenglish have obviously just completely ignored what everyone has said before me. Shocking considering we pay for privilidge !!

  • Dear web editor,
    I have to agree with the complains. This website does not have enough TOEFL materials. It's joke to have such a poor TOEFL section.

  • Dear all,
    The idea is that you can use any TOEFL past paper with this resource. You will need to source the mp3s and exams papers yourselves, while we have provided teacher's notes, tips and a worksheet with cut-outs to accompany them. This was a little unclear before so we have tried to make this more transparent in the 'Materials needed' section.
    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • I agree with all previous members. Missing audio file for the one and only TOEFL preparation material on this site.

  • I am also surprised that the site is not stronger (existent) in this important area. I am disappointed. And will not be able to meet my students needs without significant work, which I had hoped to be lessened by subscribing to this site.

  • yes I agree. A bit disappointed that there was no mp3 listening ex included to be able to use the lesson as a complete toefl example for my uni students
