TOEFL Speaking topics with Example audio mp3An easy way to get a high score on the TOEFL independent speaking tasks is to think of your answer as a mini essay. Of course, you have only 45 seconds in total, so your introduction and conclusion may be only one line each. Even so, by including them, you provide a complete answer.
INTRODUCTION: The introduction should immediately answer the question asked in the task. State clearly what you are going to speak about or what you prefer. This is like the thesis statement in an essay.
BODY: The body is where you provide the reasons, details or examples to explain or support your answer.
CONCLUSION: Your last sentence allows you to conclude in a logical, powerful and convincing way.
