Welcome back to another TOEFL iBT speaking question, everyone! And in today’s TOEFL iBT practice, we have the part II speaking question break down that will help you pick up the main ideas so you can include it in your speaking. Watch my note-taking on the video (notes down below) and look at what to include in your speaking question. Now remember, the reading portion should be a brief summary (no more than 7 seconds long) and the rest should be focused on what you hear. Don’t waste too much time on the reading aspect.
Reading – Starting next term, our school will begin a new tutoring system, where all first-year students will be assigned a senior tutor. The main goal for the tutor is to help their student to understand what it takes to be successful at school. This is mandatory for all freshmen, so we are looking for motivated senior students to sign up. On January 15th, there will be an assembly for all senior students interested in becoming a first-year student’s tutor.

Listening – Female: Did you hear about the new tutoring system? I think it is a wonderful idea and I am thinking of joining it as a tutor.
Male: Great idea. You are always helping people with their school work so I think you will make a great tutor.
Female: Actually! There is more to the tutoring system than just helping people with the school work. Each first-year student is assigned one senior tutor that helps with all aspects of school.
Male: That sounds interesting, but I don’t think I want that if I was a first-year student. I don’t see how that could help anyone.
Female: Well, there are some key facts about school that I think a senior student can really help a first-year with, like how to take notes effectively. Many first-year students can really use that advice because taking notes is very important to succeeding at school.
Male: That’s true but other than that, what else can you help them with?
Female: Okay! There is also selecting courses. Many first-year students are inexperienced in selecting courses and can benefit from the senior student’s experiences.
