Discussing both positions during Speaking part [#permalink] New post 06 Dec 2012, 12:09
Hi guys!

I'm taking TOEFL on Saturday and I'm confident in my language abilities. However, I am curious about the Speaking section - in one of the questions (Question 5 if it helps) on a sample test a Rater is giving a comment: "She has chosen to describe both solutions, which the question does not require, but since she is a fluent speaker, she is able to do this as well as support her recommendation within the time limit.".

Any advantage in doing that?

I also tested myself given the time limit and I could describe both positions and discuss possible solutions. Should I do this on the real test, or stick only to one solution?

I recommend that my students actually DO describe (quickly) both of the solutions offered by the speaker in the dialog. I think that describing only one would cost you points.

So to answer your question: yes.
