The TOEFL exam speaking test requires American accent. In IELTS British accent is more acceptable. However, the accent is not a criterion or mandatory. 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. In TOEFL exam your typing and computer skills must be good.

The TOEFL speaking examination is not conducted on the same day. It can be one day before or one week before and one week after the exam. In IELTS all components of the exam, including listening, speaking, reading and writing are on the same day because it is a computer based test. IELTS exam is dependant on a good memory. TOEFL examination requires analytical thinking to answer the multiple choice questions accurately.

Mind and Umbrella have one thing in common, they are useful when they are open; otherwise, they increase your burden.
