The TOEFL Speaking section has just four questions.  You are given either 45 or 60 seconds to answer each one.

  • Personal Choice
  • Campus Announcement
  • General To Specific
  • 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 material and conversations.  Guides and speaking templates for each question are below.

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