We’re back! Here’s the follow up from last week Friday! And this week, you’re going to hear me break down dialogs that contain contradictions and emphasis. Remember, this is a sneak peek, so if you want the full video, the link is down below!
Here’s a great preview from my course! In this episode, I’m teaching one of my Panamanian students about parallel structures, a part of TOEFL itp that’s extremely crucial to know not only in the Structure but also in the Written Expression portion of the test. How to identify parallels? Come listen!

We’re back with another fantastic dialog! In today’s lesson, we’re going to do more dialogs with suggestions. Remember, this is only a sneak peek. The entire course is available in the link down below!
Another snippet! Welcome back! Today we’re going over audios now featuring agreement/disagreement scenarios. This is a follow up, so again, if you haven’t memorized the phrases yet, PLEASE DO!
Inference questions about dialogs are the single most important pillar of TOEFL listening, and in today’s sneak peek, you’re going to see how I do work with it. Remember, full course is available in the link down below!
Welcome to the SUPER debut! In today’s lesson, I have 15 questions in which I’ll break down in many different ways, and in the remaining 15, you will be able to do them and submit your answers.

I’m beyond ecstatic to finally present to you the TOEFL iTP Listening Course! In this short episode/video, I’ll be discussing pricing, pre-launch, bundle inclusions, previews, content layout and more! I know some of you have been asking, and it’s finally here!
Finally, after such a long time, the pre-launch to my TOEFL iTP Listening Course is here! The video entailing all sections of the course will be debuting today, along with a previewable pre-tests that you can take to measure where you are and where you need to be.
It took such a long time but I’m so happy to debut this. The full course launch is January 1st! If you want to purchase the pre-sale now, it’s just $30, but know that I will be uploading content and videos for the next ten days.
Also, the huge course bundle comprising of four sections will be $132 total! If you want just one course, it’ll be $57 per course.
Any questions, ask away!
Let this be a dose of self-awareness for a lot of you out there who are probably making the same mistake in regards to your speaking sections. My wonderful student, who I’m coaching, sent me one of her speaking evaluations. Now, because it wasn’t up to par, I walk her through the entire process, break it down, show what she said, and gave her a huge amount of suggestions. If you guys are interested in speaking evaluations, let me know!
Let’s get back into another reading! This one is a bit more difficult than the previous one, so you better brace yourself. Again, if anyone is interested in the Structure Course that I’ve launched already, click the link here to gain access to the page!
Although only a small percentage of electromagnetic radiation that is emitted by the Sun is ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the amount that is emitted would be enough to cause severe damage to most forms of life on Earth were it all to reach the surface of the Earth. Fortunately, all of the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation does not reach the Earth because of a layer of oxygen, called the ozone layer, encircling the Earth in the stratosphere at an altitude of about 15 miles above the Earth. The ozone layer absorbs much of the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation and prevents it from reaching the Earth.
Ozone is a form of oxygen in which each molecule consists of three atoms (O3) instead of the two atoms (O2) usually found in an oxygen molecule. Ozone forms in the stratosphere in a process that is initiated by ultraviolet radiation from the Sun. UV radiation from the Sun splits oxygen molecules with two atoms into free oxygen atoms, and each of these unattached oxygen atoms then joins up with an oxygen molecule to form ozone. UV radiation is also capable of splitting up ozone molecules; thus, ozone is constantly forming, splitting, and reforming, it is unable to reach Earth and cause damage there.
Recently, however, the ozone layer over parts of the Earth has been diminishing. Chief among the culprits in the case of the disappearing ozone, those that are really responsible, are the chloroflurocarbons (CFCs). CFCs meander up from Earth into the stratosphere, where they break down and release chlorine. The released chlorine reacts with ozone in the stratosphere to form chlorine monoxide (ClO) and Oxygen (O2). The chlorine then becomes free to go through the cycle over and over again. One chlorine atom can, in fact, destroy hundreds of thousands of ozone molecules in this repetitious cycle, and the effects of this destructive process are now becoming evident.Longman
- According to the passage, ultraviolet radiation from the Sun
- Is causing severe damage to the Earth’s ozone layer
- Is only a fraction of the Sun’s electromagnetic radiation
- Creates electromagnetic radiation
- Always reaches the Earth
- The word “encircling” in Line 5 is closest in meaning to
- It is stated in the passage that the ozone layer
- Enables ultraviolet radiation to reach the Earth
- Reflects ultraviolet radiation
- Shields the earth from a lot of ultraviolet radiation
- Reaches down to the Earth
- According to the passage, an ozone molecule
- Consists of three oxygen molecules
- Contains more oxygen atoms than the usual oxygen molecule does
- Consists of two oxygen atoms
- Contains the same number of atoms as the usual oxygen molecule
- The word “free” in line 10 could best be replaced by
- Ultraviolet radiation causes oxygen molecules to
- Rise to the stratosphere
- Burn up ozone molecules
- Split up and form as ozone
- Reduce the number of chloroflurocarbons
- The pronoun “it” in line 13 refers to
- The word “culprits” in line 16 closest in meaning to which of the following?
- Guilty parties
- Group members
- According to the passage, what happens after a chlorine molecule reacts with an ozone molecule?
- The ozone breaks down into three oxygen atoms.
- Two different molecules are created
- The two molecules combine into one molecule.
- Three distinct molecules result
- Where in the passage does the author explain how much damage chlorine can do?
- Lines 1-3
- Lines 12-14
- Lines 18-19
- Lines 20-22
- The paragraph following the passage most likely discusses
- The negative results of the cycle of ozone destructions
