TOEFL Speaking Skill 1: Plan The Free-choice Response

The first and most important step in the independent free-choice task in the Speaking section of the iBT TOEFL test is to decode the question to determine what the intended outline is. Independent free-choice questions generally give clear clues about how your answer should be constructed. It is important to follow the clues that are given in the topic when you are plan­ning your answer. You will probably not be given too much credit for a response that does not cover the question in the way that is intended.

for (such as reasons, details, or examples), and try to personalize your much as possible. The more support you have, the better your response will be.
