TOEFL iBT ® Quick Prep 24 ANSWERS SPEAKING SECTION Speaking Practice Set 1 32. To respond to this particular question, you should clearly state what your opinion is: Do you agree or disagree that learning through online courses is more effective than learning in the traditional classroom setting? Then you should give reasons to support your opinion. If you take the position that you agree that online courses are more effective, you might give the reason that online courses are more effective because a student can study at anytime from anywhere. You might further support that reason by using an example from your own experience. You might say that you learn best in the evenings and so online courses allow you to learn when you are best able to concentrate, whereas in a traditional classroom, you have to concentrate at a particular time. If you disagree with the statement and believe that online courses are not more effective than learning in a traditional classroom, you might give an example of something that happens in the classroom that makes learning effective. You might say that direct contact with a teacher is important. You could continue to develop your response by giving examples of how direct contact is beneficial to learning. Keep in mind that there is no “correct” answer to this question. Whether you agree or disagree with the statement, your answer can be supported with examples. The important part of this task is to make sure that you state your opinion and develop your response with good examples and relevant details. As with all speaking tasks, your response should be intelligible, should demonstrate effective use of grammar and vocabulary, and should be well developed and coherent. This task is scored using the Independent Speaking Rubrics (see Appendix A). Speaking Practice Set 2 33.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
