Question Description
Hello, I came to know there is a Speaking section in TOEFL iBT. So, please give me sample questions or topics for my TOEFL speaking practice. I want to know about types of questions asked in TOEFL speaking section. Please give me all possible TOEFL speaking sample topics for my test preparation.
Answers

There are two parts in TOEFL Speaking Section, one is independent and another is integrated. I can give you topics for independent part only because in integrated part there is no topic at all. You just need to read a passage and listen to a lecture or conversation and then respond to what you read and here.

So, here are some topics for your TOEFL speaking independent part:

Where do you want to be on your holiday?
Describe your favorite subject.
Describe your favorite sports.
Describe your best teacher.
Describe your best friend.
What do you think about women who word?
What type of life do you want to live?
How important are extra-curricular activities?
Is it good to make decisions quick?
What do you think will your role be in development of nation?
How can you contribute the world?
Who is the person you admire most?
Which is your happiest moment in life?
How important is it for students to get access to latest technologies?
Should teens be provided full access to internet?
What do you think about winter season?
Which is the place you want to be in?
Whose role is important Ė fatherís or motherís?
Is home a first school for a child?

These are some of the sample topic for TOEFL test. Similar type of question is asked during your TOEFL test. For such questions, you have 15 seconds to prepare or make notes and 45 seconds to speak. The student who speaks accurately and fluently for exactly 45 seconds will get the highest score. Hope these topic will help you.
