Speaking Section

The TOEFL speaking section is designed to assess your ability to communicate effectively in English, featuring a mix of independent and integrated tasks that require summarization of lectures, conversations, and personal opinion expression.
  • The first task is independent, focusing on personal experiences and opinions without the need to summarize external information.
  • Integrated tasks involve summarizing content from lectures or conversations, with some requiring additional reading.
  • Timing is critical, with only 15-30 seconds for preparation and 45-60 seconds for speaking, emphasizing the need for concise and structured responses.
  • Practicing with a timer and structuring responses around a main idea followed by supporting details can significantly improve performance.
  • Understanding the specific requirements and structure of each task is crucial for effective preparation and success in the speaking section.
