Free TOEFL Sample Essays

Want to see actual essays submitted by other people just like you who are studying for the TOEFL? TestMagic offers a selection of several hundred essays for you to browse. We have grouped these essays into categories.

  • TOEFL Essays 5.0 and higher These essay were written by visitors to the TestMagic website. They composed their TOEFL essays and submitted them for free scoring (which is unfortunately not currently available) and agreed to allow their essays to be posted for others to read. We have chosen to show only essays that were estimated to score a 5.0, a 5.5, or a perfect score of 6.0.
  • TestMagic TOEFL Essay Samples These are essays written by TestMagic staff as models for TestMagic TOEFL students. In some cases, the essays longer than what you would need on the actual TOEFL, but all the essays were written in under 30 minutes.
  • TOEFL Essay Topics/TWE Essay Topics (the full list) This is the official list of the current TOEFL topics. Please note that this file is not hosted on, but ETS's servers, as ETS does not allow third parties to redistribute their materials.
  • You may also want to visit the TestMagic TOEFL forum to see more TOEFL essays posted in real time. There are literally hundreds of essays posted in the TOEFL essay forum, with feedback and comments from other users. You are welcome to post your own TOEFL essay there if you like or to comment on the essays of others.

You will also notice that the sample TOEFL essays do not have topics listed next to this; again, this is to conform with ETS's copyright policy. You will need to refer to the official TOEFL essay topics to know the precise essay prompt.
