The choice of words, pronunciation as per international standards, vocabulary is more important. Grammar plays a vital role in forming the sentences correctly in speaking and writing. The duration of TOEFL exam is 4 hours. IELTS exam is for 2 hours and 45 minutes. The TOEFL speaking session involves an explanation of opinion with summarized information. You will be speaking into a microphone recorder. IELTS speaking test is a prepared text: a short essay that needs to be spoken to an examiner’s face to face. This means it involves one person who will test your speaking skills. TOEFL is a computer based online examination. IELTS is a paper based exam. Flow Charts, Matching, and True or False dominate.
