    What to say when we don't understand the audio?

    Hi guys!

    I've been studying for TOEFL with a friend and we are having some problems with the speaking section. Some of the audios are very difficult to understand, which makes impossible for us to answer the questions that follow. Do you have any tips on what to do when we don't understand the audios? We can undestand the main idea, but we can not explain the details they ask for sometimes. Do you think it is a good idea to give reasons why we can't complete the task ("the vocabulary is very specific, so I couldn't understand some of the words; the subjet is completely unknown and very hard to get..")? I believe that since it is a section to test our speaking ability, we have to show that we can speak indeed, even though we were not able to understand the audio; after all there is a listening section to test out listening ability, so that's not the point of the speaking section, I think.

    Anyway, should I say the few things I was able to understand and then show the reasons why I'm not able to answer what was asked, or should I be in silence for the seconds I have left after saying the few things I've got?

    Thanks.

    The speaking sections are not ONLY a test of speaking. Part of the job is show that you understood the material presented. Focus on what you understood. Note, you don't need to repeat all the information presented. For example, question #6 has a lecture that is usually over 2 minutes long, say about 150 seconds. You have 60 seconds to answer. So obviously you cannot repeat all the of the information. The job is to SUMMARIZE.

    Let me ask you, what score on speaking is your goal?

    Thanks for the reply, Tino!

    I don't have an especific score goal on the sessions. The goal is 83 points on toefl, and I know that my worst score is going to be on this section (mostly questions #4 and #6, which have a lecutre). I'm not having big problems with the other sections.

    And since you've asked, should I have a score goal on each section? The university I'm applying hasn't asked especific scores, only the total score of 83 points.

    Thanks again!

    Re: Tips for high score in speaking....got 27 insteade of 23

    Has anyone had a chance to checkout the new platform called EduSynch...you can practice reading and listening all day long for free and they have simulations identical to the iBT with toefl certified evaluators that determine your projected score- super super helpful.....especially if you want to get familiar with the format of the test, how the questions appear, etc
