TOEFL Speaking Exercises: Communicative Speaking Activities  

toefl test reading student ibt toefl testWith the proper use of the following communicative activities you can improve your general speaking skills for iBT TOEFL test. For most of these activities, you need to work with your fellow students in groups. Some of these activities require you to have access to high speed internet or some media sources like TV shows. We provide you with some of these sources as we continue expand this website as a major source of TOEFL preparation practices and activities. Please stay tuned with us.

TOEFL Speaking Exercise 1: Travel Agents (Class/Small  Group Activity)

As a class, decide on an "ideal vacation." You may want to go to a resort destination such as Tahiti or Bermuda, an international city such as Paris or London, or a place of natural beauty such as the Grand Canyon or the Swiss Alps.
Next, meet in small groups and plan your trip. Each person in each group has $3,000 to spend on a one-week trip. Using the Internet, find the best (not necessar¬ily the cheapest!) airfares, hotels, tours, and so on. Then plan a day-by-day sched¬ule for your trip. (Don't forget to leave some time to relax-it's a vacation, after all.)
After you have prepared a budget and a schedule, groups will report back to the class about the trip they have planned. The class will vote on which group has planned the best vacation.


TOEFL Speaking Exercise 2: Newscast (Small-Group Activity)

If possible, watch some local news broadcasts on television at home. Pay attention to the format of news programs.
For this activity, the class will divide into groups of four. Each group should bring a local or a campus newspaper. Read a number of news stories as well as sports stories and the weather forecast for the next few days.
Two students from each group will act as news "anchors" (reporters) and give brief summaries of three or four news stories. These can be international, national, local, or school news stories. One student should also report on sports events and one should give a weather report.
If possible, videotape these newscasts. (You may want to do only one group per day so that groups will have different stories to report.)
After all the groups have given their newscasts, discuss as a class which group gave the most interesting, informative, and polished report.


TOEFL Speaking Exercise 3: Investment Group (Class/Small  Group Activity)

Divide into small groups. One person from each class should bring a copy of the financial section of a newspaper to class (or you can visit a site on the Internet that lists stock prices). Each group has $10,000 to spend. Decide on a portfolio of stocks. Which companies should your group invest in and how many shares of stock should you buy?
Every week for the next four weeks, check your stocks as a group. See if they have gone up or down and if your group is making money or losing money. If some of your stocks are not performing well, you can sell some stocks and buy new ones, but there is a $25 "broker's fee" for each buy-sell transaction.
At the end of four weeks, each group reports to the class on what investments they made and why, and on how much money they made or lost. The group with the most profits wins.


TOEFL Speaking Exercise 4: Urban Legends Game (Individual/Class Activity)

Urban legends are a kind of folklore consisting of stories about modern life. They are often thought to be true, according to the people that tell them. Many of them are frightening horror stories, but some are just funny. Storytellers often try to make these stories personal. They might say, "This really happened to a friend of mine" or "This is a true story. It happened to my cousin's boyfriend." Urban legends spread quickly all over the world, usually from person to person (often bye-mail). Not all urban legends are false (although most of them are), but even the true ones are often distorted or exaggerated.
There are a number of Internet sites that list urban legends. Generally the sites classify stories according to their truthfulness: Some are listed as true, some as false, some as possibly true. Here's a list of some of these sites. / / / /
Visit one of these urban-legend sites (Snopes is probably the largest and best known) and choose a legend that interests you. Take notes on the story (don't print it out). Report your story to the class. Each student in the class then writes down TRUE, FALSE, or POSSIBLY TRUE. The student with the greatest number of correct guesses wins.
