Record yourself to speak better
When practicing for the Speaking task of the TOEFL test pay close attention to natural speaking patterns. Listen and make note of how words are pronounced and stressed, as well as the speaker's intonation patterns and pauses. Try making a recording of your own speaking effort and play it back to evaluate it. Ask yourself these questions: Did I speak clearly? Did I make grammatical errors? Did I use words correctly?
Preparing for the integrated Speaking tasks
You can practice for the integrated Speaking tasks on the TOEFL test by doing the following: select a topic or an assigned reading and then find listening material that covers the same topic. (You can find these on the Internet or the library.) Create an outline to summarize both materials. This task will help you to synthesize what you read with what you hear.
How to practice speaking English without a listener
If you find yourself without the opportunity to practice speaking with a native speaker of English, try one of these independent tasks in English: Describe a familiar place. Recount a personal experience. State a personal opinion about something that is going on in your community or the world. Do these independent tasks alone, and then try them with a native speaker of English.
Find a friend that speaks English
You have probably heard that the best way to practice speaking the English language is with a native speaker of English. But finding one may be challenging. In some countries, there are English-speaking tutors or assistants who help students with conversation skills and overall communication skills. It is critical to find them and speak with them as often as possible. You can also link up with an English club and join the members in English-language conversations about movies, music and travel.
