TOEFL Speaking Practices

The TOEFL speaking practices on this web page divide into smaller, discreet skills to help you succeed on the independent and integrated tasks.

TOEFL Speaking Practices

Take me to your TOEFL Vocabulary exercises.

First, if you do not have adequate vocabulary, you will perform poorly according to the language-use rubrics that ETS uses to score your independent and integrated speaking tasks.  Therefore, the TOEFL speaking practices for vcoabulary will help you

Where can I find your TOEFL Pronunciation Practices?

Second, if the TOEFL iBT human raters cannnot understand what you are sating, they will not be able to give you a high score on the speaking section of the TOEFL iBT. In addition, ETS uses a speaking scoring engine called SpeechRater, which analyzes your speech for linguistic features such as pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary useage. Therefore, whether a human or computer analyzes your speech, you will want to make sure that you speak clearly. The below resource will give you access to many of the most effective pronunciation lessons that I have written:

Do you have TOEFL Grammar Practices?

Third, grammar, the engine of any language, allows you to put words together in a grammatical order that makes sense. The below resources are designed to help you learn basic and advanced grammar structures:

I need TOEFL Listening Practices.

Fourth, during the TOEFL integrated speaking tasks, you will need listen to campus-related conversations in connection to an announcement. Furthermore, other lectures will be explaining in more depth a concept that will be introduced in a reading passage. Lastlly, other lectures from professors will introduce academic concepts and then present more details to explain that conceptiully dense material.  Therefore, you will need to improve your listening comprehension. The below resources will give you the practice you need so that you listen more accurately and more completely. Consequently, you will be able to explain that information.

Where are your TOEFL Reading Practices?

Fifth, similarly, TOEFL speaking integrated task 2 will present you a short unversity announcement that you will need to read, take notes, and summarize. In TOEFL task 3, you will read an academic passage that introduces an academic concept.  As a result, you should practice your reading skills now so that you read quickly with good comprehension. In addition, you should practice taking notes and reading passages, and then speaking about those materials.  The following resources will help you to improve your reading comprehension.

I want TOEFL Independent Speaking Practices.

Sixth, the way you improve your independent speaking practices is to complete simulated tasks.

Then a qualified TOEFL speaking mentor listens to, evaluates, and scores you from 0-30 pts.  In addition, the speaking mentor will recommend specific lessons that match your speaking issues so that you can get the practice you need to improve your weak areas. For instance, if the speaking mentor notices that you have problems with grammar and that you are using mostly basic grammar, he will recommend a series of skill-buidling lessons to help you master compound and complex sentences.

Quite frankly, you could have dozens of delivery, language use, and topic development problems. You will not be able to pinpoint those problems yourself. In fact, most TOEFL teachers do not have the training to pinpoint and disagnose speaking problems which are bringing down your score. However, the speaking mentor on this web site has 30 years of teaching experience at California State University and has worked continuously with international students to help them improve their TOEFL scores.  He can help you too. Enroll in his TOEFL Speaking Boot Camp course so that you can get the feedback you need so that you know WHAT you need to improve.

I need TOEFL Integrated Speaking Practices.

You can try to go it alone with your TOEFL integrated speaking practices. However, you may end up taking the TOEFL iBT exam dozens of times.  Still, you may not reach your required speaking subtotal score. Instead of following in the footsteps of the 88% to 90% of students who never score high on the speaking section of the TOEFL iBT, why not join the tried-and-proven TOEFL Speaking Boot Camp course?  Your integrated speaking issues that you may have are complex and difficult to diagnose. In addition, you want to make sure that your TOEFL integrated speaking mentor is qualified and has the experience to help you reach your desired speaking score, right?

  1. Answer the whole question. Learn to both read and listen to TOEFL speaking questions critically. Plan, outline and speak answers that address every question point. For this skill, you may want to check your answers with a teacher, tutor, or classmate. A second set of eyes or ears may be able to see an aspect of the question that you didn’t address. Review and use official TOEFL Speaking materials. Practice answering questions and review sample speaking answers from ETS resources. Be sure to check out the official TOEFL website and the ETS practice books. You can also do TOEFL-like practice questions from unofficial sources.
