This is a new question type and it is being used more and more frequently in the official TOEFL exam, so it’s extremely important you are ready for it. Here is a lesson on how to tackle these new TOEFL speaking topics for three choices questions.
Advantages and Disadvantages
In this question style, you are asked to talk about advantages and disadvantages of a topic. Here are some example questions:
- Some students work while attending university. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of having a part-time job at school.
- Should universities allow students to watch TV in their dormitories? What is your opinion and why? What are the advantages and disadvantages of watching TV in dormitories? Include reasons and examples to support your response.
- Should young children spend a great amount of their time practicing sports? What is your opinion and why? Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
To answer these questions, you can use the following expressions:
There are certainly benefits and drawbacks of ______
There are certainly advantages and disadvantages to ______.
There are certainly positive aspects and negative aspects associated with this topic.
One advantage is that…
On the flip side (However, ), a major advantage is that _____
If / Imaginary
An « If / Imaginary » question will give you a hypothetical – an imagined situation and ask what you would do or what you would choose. Rather than choosing between two things or two opinions, you are typically not limited in your choice. That is, you can choose anything that fits the situation. Here is an example: « If you had a small amount of money, would you spend it right away or save it? Use details and examples to support your explanation. »
When you write your response to an « If / Imaginary Question », remember that you should use the Conditional Sentence Type 2 so you can start your response like the following: « If I had a small amount of money, I would choose to save it for a number of reasons.«
The Conditional Sentence Type 2 is used when we want to talk about the results of things that are unlikely to happen. The Conditional Sentence Type 2 is built as follows:
If + Subject + simple past, Subject + would/could/might + verb
Description or Explanation
A « Description or Explanation » question will ask you to describe a certain type of person – especially the good qualities of a person – or explain something in the world. Or you will be asked to give your opinion on TOEFL speaking topics and explain your opinion with reasons. Here are some examples:
- Do you think bicycles will still be widely used in the future or replaced by other means of transportation?
- What is an important benefit that an employer can offer to make sure employees are happy and healthy? Explain your answer.
