TOEFL Tip #60: TOEFL Speaking Task 1: Describe A PERSON

by Strictly English TOEFL Tutors on October 22, 2009

When TOEFL asks you to describe a PERSON in Speaking Task 1, you can talk about that person’s:


EX: “I really respected my chemistry teacher because he was SMART (mind) and PATIENT (emotion)”

You can also:

1. Talk about the effect this person has had on you (for example, this person made you more interested in volunteer work, or this person introduced you to jazz music)

Or: 2. talk about why you respect this person (for example, you really respect their work ethic, or you admire their sense of humor).
