Question 1 of 22
The TOEFL iBT speaking section asks for the completion of six tasks: 

 

. One independent task in which you have to answer a question.

. One independent task in which you have to express a choice.

. Two listening, reading and speaking integrated tasks in which you will be asked to integrate the information from two different sources.

. Two listening and speaking integrated tasks in which you will be asked to report, summarize or explain the information from one source.

The key skills to develop for the integrated tasks are note taking and the ability to identify the topic and key points of audio and written texts.

Instructions: Read the following passage and take notes on the main points about it.
You will then use your notes to answer some questions about it. You will have 4 minutes to read the text, take notes, and answer the questions that follow.

As part of the university’s Green Campus policy, the Campus Housing Services office has implemented some new regulations that will have to be followed by every single user of the student residences starting next semester. Dormitory occupants will remain responsible for collecting their own trash and placing it in the containers outside each dorm complex. Additionally, there are some new policies that will have to be followed without exception. First, every Tuesday at around noon, the dorm cleaners will inspect each room and kitchen, and keep a list with the names of those who did not empty their trash cans before then. Those lists will be handed in to the CHS office, and the students who fail to empty their trash cans will be charged the corresponding fines. If you empty your room’s can, but the one of your dorm kitchen is not, you will still receive a partial fine for holding part of the responsibility for the cleanliness of the kitchen. Second, and finally, each room and kitchen will now have two separate trash cans, one for inorganic trash and another for the organic one. Those rooms and kitchens that fail to divide their trash according to these categories will also be charged with a fine. For detailed information about the fine costs, check the Campus Housing Services web page.

Now, use your notes to answer the following questions ​

A) the campus’ new Green Policy;#
B) the problems related to trash handling in the campus dormitories;#
C) the fines stipulated by the new Green Policy;#
D) the supervision done by dorm cleaners;#
E) the new regulations related to trash handling in campus residences
E

A) The author indicates that the university’s Green Campus policy implies new regulations to be followed by dormitory occupants, and then goes on to describe them. Apart form the fact that “Green Campus policy” and “Green Policy” are two different names, this answer is very general to be the topic of the whole text, so this answer is not the best.
B) Although the text discusses the handling of trash in the campus residences, no existing problems related to it are mentioned, so this answer is wrong.
C) The fines related to the incorrect handling of trash in the student residences are just mentioned as part of the details of the topic, which is “the new regulations related to trash handling in campus residences”, so this answer is wrong.
D) The text indicates that the dorm cleaners will supervise that every student and kitchen follow the new regulations, but this is just part of the details supporting the topic. In addition, “the supervision done by dorm cleaners” is a very general idea to be used as a topic, so this answer is wrong.
E) This is the best answer! The author explains that the university’s Green Campus policy implies new regulations to be followed by residence occupants, and then goes on to describe them. ;#

Although it is previously mentioned that the students will “remain” responsible for placing the trash in the containers outside the residences, the word “remain” indicates this is not a new policy, but part of the existing regulations, so this answer is wrong.
D) The text indicates that dorm occupants will have to empty their room and kitchen trash cans once a week, and that they will have to separate the trash in both places as well. In addition, the writer uses the connecting words “First” and “Second” to introduce the explanation and details concerning each of these new policies, so this answer is wrong.

D) She is socially responsible. ;#
E) She is ecologically conscious.;#
E
A) The question asks you to make an inference. When the man asks for the “dorm student supervisor”, the woman answers: “You don’t have to ask any further”. This means he has already found the person he was looking for, so this answer is completely wrong.

C) In the conversation, the woman tries to convince the man to the end, and never seems to get mad at Matt, so this answer is wrong.
D) Throughout the conversation, the woman tries to convince the man to follow an ecological policy, but the idea of “social responsibility” has to do with acting to benefit society, not to help ecology, so this answer is not the best.

A
A) This is the best answer! When the man expresses his refusal to separate trash, his argument is that he is there “to study, not to add extra time to my schedules separating trash”. Then he also mentions that he does not like the idea of receiving “extra assignments apart from the ones I’ll already be having from my professors.” ;#
B) The man does not mention his parents’ home; in fact, he mentions that sorting out trash sounds like a good idea within a family environment, so this answer is wrong.
C) The man mentions that separating trash sounds good for a company, but he does not make any reference to his working future, so this answer is wrong.
D) The man mentions that he will consider renting a place near campus, but he does not state whether people in the city do not sort out trash, so this answer is not the best.

Question 7 of 22

Opción múltiple
A) a public prize ;#
B) reduced costs ;#
C) extra fines;#
D) payments off ;#
E) an encouragement
B

B) This is the best answer! The woman indicates that the university has had to pay less for trash collection as a result of their trash policy. ;#
C) The woman only mentions the fines that students who do not sort out trash have to pay, but fines paid by the university are not indicated, so this answer is wrong.

E) The woman mentions that the direct benefit from the trash separation policy is that the university has had to pay less for trash collection because “the city hall encourages the preservation of resources”. The word encourages is thus used as a verb indicating that the city hall motivates ecological policies, but it is not used to describe the direct benefit received by the university, so this answer is not the best.

D

A) The woman indicates that sorting out trash will not “ take more than a few seconds” of the man’s day, so this answer is wrong.
B) The woman just mentions that separating trash contributes “a little bit to save our environment”. However, the idea “save the planet” is far more general than that. Although it is commonly accepted that trash separation is a means to help preserve the Earth’s ecology, this idea is not mentioned by either speaker in the conversation, so this answer is not the best.
C) The woman indicates at least two benefits of separating trash at the university, but this answer does not specify them, so it is not the best. 
D) This is the best answer! The woman tries to convince the man to change his attitude by mentioning that “separating trash won’t take more than a few seconds of your day”. ;#
E) The woman explains that the separate trash cans in the dorm kitchen and rooms are for students to follow the trash separation rules, but she does not explain anything related to other campus facilities. In addition the fact that the man will consider moving out of campus implies that this rule is only to be followed by students living in the university’s residences, so this answer is wrong.

Question 9 of 22
Instructions: Read the following passage and take notes on the main points about it.
You will then use your notes to answer some questions about it. You will have 2 minutes to read the text, take notes, and answer the questions that follow.
 
 These days, the average citizen of any urban area spends at least a tenth of his life with a headphone set on his ears. The search for high fidelity combined with the need for isolating sounds form the external environment makes many of us use headphones for a number of different activities related to leisure and communication. Nevertheless, most people do not consider the negative side effects that the use of these devices has on their ears and the rest of their bodies. To begin with, it has been known for years that laboratory studies have constantly demonstrated that the use of headphones affects the hearing ability in a long term. Besides, there is also the fact that research done in several universities during the 1980’s demonstrated that the magnets and wire inside each speaker create a magnetic field that increases the risk of brain cancer. As a result, for many years scientific and medical associations have been recommending that the use of such devices be limited as much as possible.

B) It refutes the ideas in the passage.;#
C) It adds extra information to the passage.;#
D) It emphasizes the advantages of headphones over their disadvantages.;#
E) It is based on facts rather than on assumptions.
A
A) This is the best answer! The two sources discuss some aspects of headphones, and both coincide in their mention of their safety. However, the passage mentions that there are negative side effects related to the user’s health, while the speaker indicates that they “do not represent any danger for the user.”;#
B) Although this answer refers to the plural “ideas” both sources present contrasting views regarding only one characteristic of headphones, which is their safety. Besides, the verb “to refute” means “to deny”, but the listening does not address the side effects mentioned in the passage, so this answer is not the best.
C) The passage mentions that headphones are used for communication and leisure and that they produce scientifically proved side effects. On the other hand, the speaker describes the improvement of headphones and their uses for entertainment and exploration. As a result, neither the main ideas, nor the examples in the listening add to what is mentioned in the passage, so this answer is wrong.
D) The speaker does not mention disadvantages of headphones in our days. In addition, he does not contrast the advantages that he mentions with the disadvantages listed in the passage, so this answer is wrong.
E) The speaker does not indicate whether he ignores or decides not to mention the scientific research mentioned in the passage. Even if he indicated that he bases his idea on the security of phones on mere assumptions, this would mean the opposite to this answer, so it is completely wrong.

Question 19 of 22
 
The following activities (numbers 19-30 in the speaking section) are designed to help you practice organizing your arguments.
Instructions:
1) Read the given arguments (#1 - #4). 
2) Use the examples to form a counterargument of your own.
3) Once you have an argument in mind, follow the steps in number 4.
4) Explain your argument.
a) Give background information.
b) State your argument clearly.
c) Explain how each example supports your argument.
d) Also, make sure you explain how each example shows that the given argument is faulty.
e) Finally, give a conclusion summarizing your point of view. It should demonstrate that some critical points were not considered in the given argument; therefore, the given argument is faulty​

Argument #1: 

The drug war should be allowed to run its course since neither the US nor Mexico has the infrastructure to deal with the subsequent effects, such as treatment, job placement, and medical care, that will come with the vacuum left behind if drug trafficking suddenly came to a halt.

Examples: 


1) The author does not specify what he means by “run its course”. 
2) At the moment, Mexico’s medical infrastructure is not being used to its full potential. 
3) Treatment and preventive medical issues are the fastest growing new industry in the United States. 
Now, following step 4 in the instructions, begin stating your argument.

Question 20 of 22

Argument #2: 
The few countries in Northern Africa (Arab Africa) that are calling for drastic political and social changes, for example democratic rule and a free market, should not be given guidance from the West since one of the most important tenants of self rule is individual freedom. Any amount of foreign influence might have a retroactive effect on the progress made so far in terms of social and political change.

Examples: 


1. “Any amount of foreign influence” is a drastic statement. In the information age, it would almost be impossible for no Western influence to get through. 
2. Arab countries do not have a history of democratic tradition and would need guidance. 
3. A free market implies contact with the West. 
Now, following step 4 in the instructions, begin stating your argument.

Question 21 of 22

Argument #3 
China should continue to restrict Internet access within their borders in order to preserve their identity. The Chinese government is taking the correct path by prohibiting their citizens from using Google.

Examples: 

1. Access is the new world paradigm. Most other developing countries are vying for Internet access. 
2. Most cultures have accepted the fact that their citizens can enjoy two simultaneous identities—that of their nation plus the one that participates in the global community. 
3. In the 21st Century, “prohibition” is reserved for illicit behavior and not access to information. 
Now, following step 4 in the instructions, begin stating your argument.

Argument #4 (Here, the writer is attacking the assumption. High level of difficulty) 
NASA should not treat UFOs or extra terrestrials as a legitimate cause for continued space exploration because such an endeavor would divert funds which could otherwise be used towards more humanitarian issues.

Examples: 


1. There are countless other causes for space exploration, and UFOs and extra terrestrials would only be additional causes along with others. 
2. Further space exploration could also address the “humanitarian issues” in addition to entertaining the idea of extra terrestrials. 
3. As a means of generating public support, UFOs and extra terrestrials would be popular issues that could resuscitate space exploration. 
Now, following step 4 in the instructions, begin stating your argument.
