The Basics

With the TOEFL Speaking section, you will have to answer a total of six questions.

Two of the questions are independent speaking tasks and four of the questions are integrated speaking tasks.

In total, the speaking section lasts around twenty minutes.

You will get a score of 1-30 on the speaking section.

TOEFL Speaking Question 1

TOEFL Speaking Question 1 is an independent question.

You must either answer an open-ended question (Like ‘What is your favorite city and why?’) or a question with a pre-chosen response (Like “Young children should not be allowed to use cell phones. Do you agree or disagree with this statement?’”)

With Question 1, you have 15 seconds to prepare and 45 seconds to respond.

TOEFL Speaking Question 2

TOEFL Speaking Question 2 used to be different from Question 1. Now, the questions are interchangeable. Question Type 2 is also an independent speaking task.

Again, you may have either an open-ended question (Your friend needs to lose weight. What do you recommend?) or a question with specific answers (Which of the following would you rather have as a pet? (1) a cat; (2) a monkey; (3) a parrot. Why?).

Again, just like Question 1, you have 15 seconds to prepare and 45 seconds to respond.

TOEFL Speaking Question 4 

TOEFL Speaking Question 4 is often the most difficult question for TOEFL test takers.

Why?

Because of the unfamiliar academic vocabulary.

For Question Type 4, you read an academic passage for 45 seconds. Then, you listen to a lecture about the same topic.

After you listen to the lecture, you have 30 seconds to prepare and 60 seconds to prepare.

TOEFL Speaking Question 5 

TOEFL Speaking Question 5 is the first question that is ONLY audio – there is no reading passage.

You will listen to a dialogue between two people. One of the people will have a problem. The other person will give a few recommendations on how to solve the problem.

You have 20 seconds to prepare your notes and 60 seconds to respond. In your response, you must talk about 3 things: the problem, the two solutions, and which solution you would choose and why.
