Study English slowly and methodically. American English speakers often use the
verb “to cram” when describing their studies. “To cram” means to try to place
something forcefully into something else. When American students talk about
“cramming,” they mean that they study very quickly and try to put as much infor-
mation as possible into their minds. Cramming is not the way to prepare for the
TOEFL test. Learn English completely. Read books and magazines, watch televi-
sion, watch movies, listen to conversations, and write. Do everything you can to
obtain a good foundation in English....
