    It is not really a realistic proposition, but you can find a TOEFL wordlist here: https://www.usingenglish.com/resourc...ocabulary.html

    Oh, dear! I haven't known there is something like TOEFL word list. I was a happier person without this knowledge. Now I am really broken and find my language so, so, so poor... I haven't even come across half of these words!

    You are like my sister. She speaks English fluently. But she got very bad mark. They have asked us about knowledge not about language only.

    I haven't got any bad marks in English for many years, simply because... I haven't taken any exam for quite a long time! Who knows, maybe I will have to some day, but I hate exams.

    With most exams, a knowledge if the exam is an essential part of preparation; it is rarely enough just to speak the language well, I'm afraid.

    They asked her about ozone, space science and about the famous writers and arts. Although if you hear her you won't be able to find a difference between her and English speakers.
    For me I would rather stay at home and

    It's much better.

    Too often written is the attention in written exams paid to unnatural skills, I think. I don't like any exams and have never liked. And I am pretty bad in them. That's why I haven't even tried any English exam; I thought: "Should I spend so much time on learning how to pass an exam? I prefer to spend this time on learning English!"

    I am not saying exams are totally unnatural, but... see above. What's more, I suppose all would agree with me that learning for a particular exam is specific and that there are better ways to improve the knowledge of English than learning to any exam.
