According to (Sharpe, Orientation to the TOEFL iBT, 2019), the TOEFL iBT assesses the test-taker’s ability to understand and use English for academic purposes. The TOEFL has four sections: listening, reading, speaking, and writing, each with its own set of instructions. The writing section assesses test-takers' ability to write essays in English. They write one essay about an academic topic (integrated task) and one essay about a familiar topic during the test (independent task). The academic essay requires them to relate information from a reading passage to information from a listening passage. The researchers conducted a similar study to learn about EFL learners' challenges when taking the test to improve TOEFL iBT writing instruction strategies. This study aims to investigate the errors and to discover if there are any new findings, as diverse techniques are found in participants' writing tasks, which could provide more general information for researchers and readers. The results showed that the typical grammar errors were almost in line with the previous studies. Another comparison was that Khoshkou and Keyvanfar did not provide missed information and conclusion insertions as other typical mistakes in the integrated task. However, the other errors—plagiarism, adding one's ideas, and question-addressing—are consistent with the study's findings. It suggests the researchers, as TOEFL iBT tutors, emphasize paraphrasing techniques and for participants with weaker English proficiency need more practice time to advance.

This paper aims to analyze the significance of drilling repetition in enhancing second language learners' speaking ability. In learning a second language, some learners may overcome problems in saying words or sentences. In some cases, they also mispronounce the words. These can occur because of some problems, such as a lack of confidence, a lack of practice, and less feedback from the teacher. Based on this issue, this paper is concerned with the discussion of how the drilling technique can be a solution to the problem and its benefits to the students' speaking performance. This paper uses qualitative research analysis and a descriptive method to discuss the finding. The equipment that was implemented for this paper is journals and books. The benefits of drilling repetition are providing learners with intensive practice in hearing and saying particular word phrases. They can help with memorization and automation of common language patterns, providing the opportunity for learners to get immediate feedback, assisting learners in noticing the correct form or pronunciation of a word or phrase, which makes the learners speaking ability accurately, and building confidence. This paper finally points out that the benefits of adopting drilling repetition in enhancing second language learners' speaking ability are helpful to building learners' confidence and fluency in speaking the second language.
