TOEFL Speaking Introduction

TOEFL Speaking is the third section of the TOEFL test. Although it is the shortest section, lasting only 20 minutes, it tends to be the hardest section for a lot of TOEFL test takers. The reason for this is most people go into the speaking section unprepared, so having said that, let's start preparing you now.

The speaking section consists of six speaking tasks with the first two tasks being the independent task and the next four being the integrated task. The independent tasks are based on your personal opinions and experience and gives you 15 seconds to prepare an answer and 45 seconds to speak.

The integrated tasks are much harder than the independent tasks because you are required to record a 60 second answer to a question based on a conversation or lecture you previously listened to. Taking notes during the conversations and lectures are critical. After the listening ends, you'll have 30 seconds to prepare a response on tasks 3 and 4 and 20 seconds on tasks 5 and 6.

TOEFL Independent Speaking Task 1

Master TOEFL Independent Speaking Task 1 - Learn 4 Question Styles

  • What is your favorite food?
  • Whom do you feel closest to in your family
Recently, however, more question styles have emerged and students are going into the TOEFL unprepared. Generally speaking, we can categorize speaking task 1 questions into 4 styles
  1. Personal experience
  2. Giving advice
  3. Three choices
  4. Stating opinions

Regardless of which style you encounter, the timing format is the same. You will have 15 seconds to prepare your answer and 45 seconds to speak.

How to Prepare for the TOEFL Speaking Test

Before we go over our TOEFL preparation tips, there are three things you should be aware of regarding scoring high on the TOEFL Speaking section:
  1. It is okay to have an accent, but your speaking response must be clear and understandable. To do that, you need to make sure you pronounce each syllable of every word clearly.
  2. Your speaking response must be well-structured. This means you have to use transition words such as "in addition" and "likewise" in your speaking response.
  3. Make sure your speaking response actually answers the question being asked and is completed in the allotted time frame.

TOEFL Preparation Tip 1

To dramatically improve your speaking for the TOEFL speaking test, read your responses out loud and pay attention to your pronunciation, intonation, grammar, organization, and fluency. You should record your responses in the recorder provided by us and analyze your responses to see where and what you can do better. Remember to pronounce each syllable of each word clearly so your speech is understandable.

If you find the above process too time-consuming, alternatively, you can listen to the sample response of each TOEFL speaking question. You can then imitate the sample response to improve your pronunciation, intonation, grammar, organization, and fluency. If you go through all our TOEFL speaking practice questions ensuring your pronunciation is correct, we guarantee you will earn a high score on the TOEFL speaking test.

TOEFL Preparation Tip 2

Use a TOEFL test simulator to practice structuring and answering your speaking response under pressure. What we mean by under pressure is being limited by a time frame you have no control over. We understand what students need to succeed at TOEFL, which is why we developed a TOEFL practice test simulation application that looks and feels identical to the official test. You can check it now if you like. TOEFL practice test simulations. You'll need to sign up as a free member to use our micro test. We've got 20 full length 3.5 hour tests waiting for you.

TOEFL Preparation Tip 3

Don't use vocabulary you don't fully understand. Simply memorizing a word isn't enough. You have to understand how to use it in a sentence. If you end up using an advanced word to try and fool the reviewers, you'll be in trouble. That word will probably make your response harder to understand and will do the exact opposite of what you were trying to do. So...do not use an advanced word unless you know how to use it in a sentence correctly.

If you need help improving your vocabulary, you can use our vocabulary system which includes:

  1. TOEFL Vocabulary Lists (There is a mini-lesson for each vocabulary that teaches you how to use the word correctly.)
  2. TOEFL Vocabulary Flashcards (Keep track of which words you know and which you don't)
  3. TOEFL Vocabulary Exercises (Interactive exercises that speeds up learning)

TOEFL Preparation Tip 4

It is important to get TOEFL speaking reviews! Although you can easily practice preparing your response in a short time frame by using our TOEFL practice tests, improving your overall English proficiency, speaking response structure, and communicating with cohesion requires constant feedback, you have to know what mistakes you are making in your speaking responses in order to improve your score.

You can get feedback on your speaking responses by asking a friend or colleague or by finding your own personal tutor. It doesn't matter how you get the feedback, just make sure you get it.

Each country, be it India, Brazil, Russia, etc, have their own special way of putting together sentences. Because of this, students who share the same native language tend to make similar mistakes in their speaking response.

Our TOEFL speaking reviewers will help you to understand those common mistakes by breaking down your speaking response with explanations on how to improve. You'll start to see major improvements in your speaking responses after just a few reviews.

When you decide to get a speaking review, which you should if you want to improve your speaking score, the audio feedback will focus on:

  1. Pronunciation
  2. Speed of speech
  3. Intonation
  4. Vocabulary
  5. Grammar
  6. Topic development
  7. Connection of ideas

In addition to the audio feedback, you will get a score and a report based on several speaking criteria. The criteria are as follows:

  1. Task Fulfillment
  2. Pronunciation & Intonation
  3. Flow & Speech
  4. Correct Grammar Usage
  5. Vocabulary Usage (Appropriacy and Range)
  6. Support & Development
  7. Connections & Coherence

With each review, you'll get better at structuring your response and communicating your thoughts cohesively. If you don't get feedback on your speaking responses, you'll make the language specific mistakes mentioned earlier and will not achieve a good TOEFL score.

The below sample contains an actual speaking response from one of our students.

You can find the full sample review here - Speaking question 1 - under the "RESULTS TAB"
