What I Did Was , As Soon As I Booked For The Exam I Only Spoke In English For The Whole Month. That Gave Me Confident To Speak Fulently. Guys The Simple Thing To Pass Speaking Is Confidence No Matter What You Answer, But It Should Be Realted To The Question. Speak Loudly With No Pauses As If Speaking To Your Friend. Try Speaking In English All The Time. That Helps And Pray To God To Give Confidence While You Speak.
Hope This Helps. I Got Good,good,fair.

I was so surprised whe I talked to you last year. Your speech was so good. I was so surprised when you told me that you could not get a 50 on the TSE. I told you last week that you must pass it this time! and.. you did.

I remember Elsie. You and Elsie speak with similar accent. Why did Elsie can but why you can't? You deserve this long time ago. I believe that the format of the test has a big impact on your success. Now, you can move on.

Hi Asa,

Congratulations! I think you did pretty well.

By the way, I need to practice TOEFL-like speaking questions, how did you practice? Do you suggest me some method or web page?

My TOEFL is scheduled by April 21.

Thanks a lot!

hi fpgee,Sorry for the late response. Inntonation is the way you speak ,your voice,tone, rhythm. for e.g when you speak to your family members, like sharing your opinion ,thoughts ,etc you wont speak in a same steady voice ,your language use will go up anddown in order to express your feelings but we dont do that in the exam because we are tensed when we are tensed we stammer and there is no rhythm in our speech.so talk confidently without fear,then the flow of ideas will come automatically.

04-20-2007, 06:37 PM

i gave toefl and passed first time only.my speaking section did not go very well,and i was scared to death whether i wud pass it or not.but i passed.i think what is most important is that in that 45 or 60 sec.one should speak,the content is not all that important,try not to fumble .there were two task which i could not do completely,but i spoke fluently and confidently for sure...which i think was responsible for my score.take speaking section normally,dont be scared of it.in the break drink water and dont panic.yes most important is try to take notes especially for listening and speaking sections.once u have the notes,the rest is easy.

05-21-2007, 09:06 AM
Thanks Arus!

Thanks a lot again and in advance.

Congratulations !!!1
I got my test on 16th .. n i m too tensed abt it ..
can you please share your speaking topics ....

05-21-2007, 04:27 PM
hi nandini,

i am from india.I am also looking for fpgec certificate.Many of us have this preconceieved notion that speaking section is tough,no it is not,infact i felt bad that i cud not give my best in the speaking section,which was far easier than i thought it wud be.I thought my daughter wud have spoken better than me.But as we say alls well that ends well,so i feel quite relieved as of now.But people who are struggling there,shud not be afraid of this section.Practise is very important,and having a right attitude on the exam day is far more essential,do not go to the centre with the thought that u cant do it,rather go with the attitude that u will make it.Writing section is the same taking notes in the first task is important.Try to relate both reading and listening part of it,which is the thing toefl people see.Barrons cd rom has 7 complete test,some of which far difficult than the actual test,once u adjust with these test,the actual test wud not be so tough for u in the end.One more thing dont forget to pray to god.

05-22-2007, 07:58 AM
