TOEFL Speaking Skill 4: Make The Paired-Choice Response

After you have planned your response, you need to make your response. As you make your response, you should think about the following three things:

1. you should start with a topic statement,
2. you should support the topic statement, and
3. you should use transitions to show how the ideas are related.

Start your response with a topic statement that states the main point of the response.
Include the details to support the topic statement.
Use transitions to show how the ideas in the response are related.

Look at the plan for a response to the independent speaking task on whether you like to try new foods or not and a sample response based on these notes.

Topic Statement: I think I am the kind of person who tries new food, but I am not

Support: I think I am adventurous, but not about food

Details: I like to meet new people, go to new places, try new things

I don't like to try new food

Example:  time last week when I went to new restaurant but didn't try new food


I like to think that I'm the kind of person who is willing to try new kinds of food, but when I get right down to it, it seems that I'm not that adventurous when it comes to trying new kinds of food. I think of myself as an adventurous person; I like to meet new people, go to new places, and try new things. However whenever I'm given the choice of trying new food or sticking with the regular food I'm familiar with, I seem to avoid new kinds of food. Last week, for instance my friends wanted to try a new restaurant, and they ordered new things while I ordered the same old hamburger and fries.

You should notice that this response includes a topic statement followed by several supporting details. The transitions however and for instance are used to show how the ideas are related.
