Download a PDF version of the new TOEFL test –
All questions in the PDF include answer explanations and sample responses for all sections, including the TOEFL Speaking.
As of August 1, 2019, the TOEFL test has changed, and the TOEFL speaking section has changed as well. In short, the TOEFL has reduced the number of questions in the TOEFL speaking section. In the past, there were six speaking questions and now there are only four speaking questions.
This video will cover everything you need to know about TOEFL Speaking question #1. This question is exactly the same as question number two in the previous version of the TOEFL. This is a paired choice independent question.
Basically, you will be asked a simple question about your opinion. It will ask if you agree or disagree about a statement or our of two choices which do you prefer. There is some variance in the wording of the question, but it is almost always framed in this manner.
Here are all of the elements of TOEFL Speaking question #1 that will be covered in this video:
4x example questions
1x question guided walkthrough
2x speaking templates
1x example response
1x grading checklist
4x exclusive TOEFL tips
And this is all going to be done in just 15 minutes.
My name is Josh MacPherson, the head instructor of TST Prep, where our mission is simple, to help you get your TOEFL score as quickly and easily as possible, and today we are going to talk about TOEFL Speaking question #1.

Hey Josh! I hope you get this message. I just want to thank you for these amazing videos. I cant tell you how helpful they were for me. I am from Pakistan and I recently gave my TOEFL exam, scoring 30/30 in the speaking section ONLY after two weeks of practice. You're doing a wonderful job!
Love from Pakistan! 💕

Hello, is it Ok if i don't use examples and use reasons for my choice because for most of the questions i don't have personal examples ? Or should i really use that? In some templates they don't tell to to say examples?💞
if you stutter, do they take away points?
Hey Josh. You can't even guess how grateful I am to you for your videos. They really helped me a lot to build a proper framework for the TOEFL exam and gave me a lot of confidence. I am pleased to tell you that I scored 112/120 ( R:29 L:29 S:28 W;26). My weakest part was speaking section and I am so grateful to you for your crisp and clear points on how to tackle the speaking section. Its safe to say that you are the best teacher for TOEFL exam out there. Your expertise is conspicuous.
Many many thanks and continue to do this awesome work! Cheers 💪🏽

Thank you, TST prep! <3 I've been learning English for almost 2 years now and I remember that I couldn't grasp much of the content spoken by native speakers. Through practice and a lot of online exposition to English, I managed to score 109/120 on my TOEFL exam. I watched a bunch of your videos and it helped me to understand better how the exam is organized. Keep up the good work!
Atlas R6 says
Great video! I haven't given the TOEFL yet but I have always had this question regarding the speaking section. Do you get to maybe speak for a bit longer than 45 seconds or is it just 45 seconds and more than that? How does it work?
Carlos Alberto Sanchez Obregon says
Hello amigo! thank you very much for this class! I hope to reach good score in the exam. My goal is starting my master degree
Spring Board says
The IELTS speaking test is 2 minutes, and they say, on the IELTS website, it's more natural to use um and er when speaking, but that may be because of the longer time. The robot voice is natural to native speakers who aren't used to public speaking. Does that mean this is also a public speaking test?
Vitor de Moura says
Heyyy!!!! I just got a 98 (R-22; L-23; S-27; W-26). I watched all of your videos and it was worth it! Thank you so much!!!
William Hearn says
Great info, Josh! I know that most tutors teach using templates, but I think it's more important to speak to the required structure and to the requirements of the RUBRIC. What do you think?
Panav Singh says
Thank you sir it helped me a lot
Love from India ❤️
Nikitha Shetty says
Is it okay to take a middle ground in these kind of questions?
Or is it a mandate to choose one side ?
yara albtehi says
Hey Josh! I hope you get this message.
Is it allowed to take notes for all speaking tasks that include listening records??
I mean when they turn on the listening record, is it allowed to take notes?
Karmel Hamad says
hello Josh, thanks for these amazing videos but I always try to download the free exams but I don't get them !!!
Ariana Herrera Noriega says
Thank you for the video, is very simple to understand and helpful! I have a question, I hope someone can reply. Is it necessary on this part of the speaking to put examples related to personal memories/experiences?
