In TOEFL iBT part one, test takers are required to express and defend a personal choice from a given category. For example, important people, places, events, or activities that the test takers enjoys. For this part, it is very essential for the test takers to use proper words and phrases in expressing their option and they should have enough reasons and details to convince the examiners about why they choose it. Test takers are given 15 seconds to prepare for the answers. They are allowed to take notes and they have to talk for 45 seconds. As a test taker, it is most important to have good skills before taking the test. And you should practice every day in order to improve yourselves. Moreover, it will be the key to success in this English proficiency test. Imagine that if a test taker review and study TOEFL iBT regularly, the more skillful test takers become, the more test takers can concentrate to do efforts and do their best work the better result you will have. The following are questions in TOEFL iBT and its answers.
Who do you want to spend your time with? Explain why you would to spend the day with him or her?
In this question you should tell about a person who you would want to spend time with, like your family members, classmates, neighbors and friends. And you can say the reason why you want to spend the time with them. The most common thing you can talk about are the things that you have in common such as going shopping, going to the park, bar or restaurant hopping, going to massage in a spa. And explain why you want to do these things with them. For example, Me and my classmate likes to go bar hopping in downtown because we can drink all kinds of alcohol from beer to vodka and likes the feeling of being drunk. And also, you can also use some adjectives about their characters and personalities like charming, reserved, generous, pessimistic to describe them.
I would like to spend my time with my family members especially my cousin Jamie. She is working in a Mobile company as a sales representative. We usually spend a lot of time together because we both like going to spa every weekend to have a whole body massage to refresh ourselves from an exhausting whole –week- job. The work we have is really very stressful so it is necessary for us to find a way to unwind ourselves. Being very generous is one trait that I really like about her. She always treats me every time we go to the spa and never nag about it. So I can save some money and at the same time enjoy a relaxing massage. However, she would still save some money and be able to invest some money even if she is very generous to me.
Describe an important person that is your role model. Please give your explanation and details.
Test takers should talk about a specific reason why this person becomes his/her role model. Talented, Diligent, Heroic are usually the common reasons why we admire a person and becomes our role model. Excellent in singing or dancing, can memorize a hundred words in a minute or excel in cooking are good examples of talents that can be used in this question. Sleeping late doing homework, non-stop working can describe a diligent role model or helping out in saving people during disasters, such as typhoons and earthquake can best describe heroic deeds.
An important person I want to talk about is Henry Li who is the most heroic person I really admire and I really look up to as a role model. He saved hundreds of survivors from the earthquake in Japan last year. After the disaster, he was courageous enough to save people although it was really dark and dirty. Most of the people would prefer giving donations or offer prayres from their houses but he really took the courage to go out in the actual field to help. A role model is really someone who can do extraordinary things like what he did ,and I hope one day I can do something heroic things too like Henry LI and become a role model for other people.
Describe a person whom you’d like to talk with. Explain why you would like to talk with this person and what topic do you usually talk about?
What kind of topic you talk about with this person should be tackled in this question. Subjects like magazine/newspaper articles, Stories of movies watched or information heard are usually talked about in the society. For magazine and newspaper articles test takers can give details like sports articles, love articles, educational articles. Romantic ending or sad endings can be affiliated with stories of movies watched. Information such as rising electric/ phone bill or decreasing water resources can be used to explain the information heard that you will talk about with the person you want to talk to.
Francis is a person I would really like to talk to because we have a lot of topics that we can talk about. Francis and me always chat in the phone or in a coffee shop until the wee hours of the morning. We usually talk about the articles that we read in the magazine about our basketball idol Kobe Bryant. In those articles we have learned about his basketball skills, lifestyle and his ambition in life. We often exchange information about him. I really enjoy talking with this guy because he is amazingly witty. He will not only tell me news about Kobe but he would also express his opinions and ideas about him. By talking with him, I think that not only I can know information about our idol but also learn from his knowledge.
Which characteristic is the most important for a student to succeed? High-motivated, hardworking, intelligent?
In this question, test takers should choose between high-motivated, hardworking and intelligent. High motivated students usually want to have a high score and to have a perfect score in all exams. He/she would do their homework very well and aim for the best. Hardworking students would always go to libraries to find different reference for their researches, essays or thesis. Maybe they are not very clever but they can achieve excellent marks through hard work. Intelligent students are those born with good brains, they may not do a lot or work but they will naturally have an ideal grades in school.
Of course, being an intelligent student is the most important characteristic a student should have to succeed. If a student is born clever, he/she would not need to excel a lot of effort to achieve an ideal mark in school. Intelligent students do not have to depend on books or teachers to learn because they can find a way to gain information and knowledge by themselves. And also, they can think of ways to solve questions or task in academics such as Mathematics or Science. Most of the intelligent students can also think of better ideas, give opinions and have their own way in solving academic task.

Special characteristic should be said in this question because you have to talk about a leader. First, you have to talk about what kind of leader you want talk about. It can be a government leader, a community leader or a religion group leader. Whatever leader you choose you should be able to talk about why they can lead this group or this place. For example, being powerful, loyal, and knowledgeable can best describe leaders. Plus , test takers can also say special traits about them that can allow them to be a leader such us being keen in leading ,have strong principles or being very religious They can also state if they think he/she is a good leader or not.
A good leader should principled and disciplined person like my father Jimmy who is the leader of our community here in Xiamen. He has principles that he would want people who live in our community to follow to let us have a better place to live in. My father believes that the cleanliness and safety of our community depends on the discipline of the people who lives in it. He leads us to donate some money to be able to hire a cleaner to clean the community and also buy some garbage cans so that people would not throw anywhere. And also have some money to hire a security guard for our safety during day in and day out. I think he was a very successful leader because all the people in our community donated a fare amount of money and the money was really wisely used to obtain a better environment.
