Speaking 1

First we'll look at what the ETS TOEFL materials say about the Speaking section.

1. Description and scoring

2. Independent Tasks (Tasks 1 - 2)

3. Integrated Tasks (Tasks 3 - 6)


Here are some sample answers at the different score levels (1 - 4)

Now we'll do some "brainstorming" in regard to how to answer the independent task.

Independent Task 1


You hear and can simultaneously read one question where you have to

"... express and defend a personal choice from a given category
- for example, important people or places, or events or activities ..."

You have 15 seconds to think about an answer,
and then you have to talk for 45 seconds.
