TOEFL Speaking Practice Test | Video Post

Announcement! As of August 1, 2019, the TOEFL Reading, Listening and Speaking sections will be shortened. The TOEFL will also make changes to its prep materials and scoring system. Because of this, some of the info in our blog posts may not yet reflect the new exam format. We cover all the changes here.

Finding great TOEFL speaking practice can be difficult. Especially if you’re preparing for the exam online, you’ll find that there are a lot of un-test-like materials out there. But now, with our video TOEFL Speaking practice test, you have excellent materials right at your fingertips!

In the following video, our TOEFL expert Lucas will take you through six TOEFL practice questions—a full TOEFL Speaking test! Each of the tasks will have a stimulus just like those you’ll see on your official exam. Furthermore, there’s time for you to prepare for and respond to each question, exactly as you’ll experience on test day.

So get those note-taking materials ready, and dive in! We’re happy to present you with the Magoosh video TOEFL Speaking Practice Test.

How to Use the TOEFL Speaking Practice Test

As you watch the video, it’s helpful to have the following materials on hand:

Practice for your TOEFL exam with Magoosh.
  • A recording device (such as your phone)
  • Writing paper
  • Pencils with erasers

Next, press play. Lucas will introduce the test in the video, after which you’ll go right into speaking practice. You’ll notice that, for each question, you have both preparation time and response time. When the bell goes off after the speaker finishes reading the question stimulus, that’s when you begin speaking.

High-scoring TOEFL students often take notes during the speaking test to remind themselves of what they’re going to say. This is especially helpful during the longer tasks, but is useful for every type of question you’ll encounter in TOEFL Speaking. (Find out more about successful note-taking on the TOEFL here.)

You’ll notice as you go along that there are timers at the bottom of the screen—just as there will be on test day. Don’t let these distract you! Instead, use them as a gauge for how much preparation time, and how much speaking time, you can devote to each aspect of the question and each example you want to use.

It’s a good idea to record yourself as you go through this practice. Not only will it help you to understand your strengths and weaknesses in this TOEFL section, but it will also give you a standard by which to measure your progress. As you continue with your TOEFL practice, you can return to this video and your recording to see where you’ve improved and identify where you’re still struggling.

How to Improve Your TOEFL Speaking After the Practice Test

Hardly anybody likes to hear the sound of his or her own voice! But it’s really important to know how your responses sound when you’re practicing for TOEFL speaking, as it will help you identify how you’re measuring up according to the TOEFL scoring system.

After the practice Speaking test, take a look at (and have a listen to) the Speaking answers. Here, you’ll be able to compare your answers to the sample answers to have a better understanding of your current standard. Grade yourself according to the step-by-step instructions on-screen.

After you grade yourself, check out our TOEFL Speaking section of the Magoosh blog, where you’ll find tons of practice questions, test tips, and expert advice about speaking on the TOEFL.
