Question Description
Please give me some sample questions and responses for first of the independent task i.e. Free Choice Task of TOEFL Speaking test.
Answers

There are six speaking tasks in the speaking portion of the TOEFL test. Two independent tasks and four integrated tasks. The first of the independent task is called the "Free Choice" task. In Free Choice task, you have 15 seconds to prepare for your answer and 45 seconds to respond.

These are some of the sample question you are likely to encounter in Free Choice task:

1. Who has influenced you the most in your life? Use reasons to support your response.

2. Explain a situation in which you received good advice. Use details to support your response.

3. Describe a political or social event your country celebrates. Use details to support your response.

4. What was the most important event of your childhood? Use reasons and details to support your response.

5. Describe a gift you have received. Use details to support your response.

8. What is your favorite place in your city? Use reasons to support your response.

9. What is your favorite movie? Use reasons and details to support your response.

10. If you had the chance to learn one new thing, what would it be and why?

As you can read from these questions, you are expected to speak about these topics from your own experience in a concise, logical, and clear manner.

Sample Question and Response:

Question:
What is your favorite free time activity? Use reasons to support your response.

Response:
Running is my favorite free time activity for the following reason:

Running is my favorite free time activity because running helps me to build my cardiovascular system. For example: Every time I run, if you run hard, my heart starts to beat at a faster pace and the longer I keep going, stronger my heart is going to become. This can help me to prevent heart attack in future.

So, for this reason, running is my favorite free time activity.
