About the TOEFL Speaking Section


The TOEFL Speaking section has just questions.  You are given either 45 or 60 seconds to answer each one.  They are (in order): Personal Choice, Campus Announcement, General To Specific, and Academic Lecture. The personal choice question is purely speaking, while the other three questions require you to speak only after reading and listening to academic content. 

Note that In August 2019 the “personal preference” and “campus situation” questions were removed from the test.
