The TOEFL Listening section is a section for most of the students and it tests the student’s listening skills. In this section you have to listen to entire conversations (A conversation involves two speakers, a student and either a professor or a campus service provider) or lectures at one go (which can be very boring). Again there can be two formats: Short or Long format.
NOTE: If you get Short format in Reading, you will get Long format in Listening or the other way round.
The TOEFL Speaking section tests the ability to communicate in English in an academic setting. It has four tasks. Tasks 1 will prompt you to speak on some familiar topic like a personal experience. You are given 10-15 seconds to think and another 30 seconds to speak on each of the questions. Tasks 2 & 3 require you to read a paragraph, followed by listening to a short conversation and then respond to a question about what you read and heard. In the next one question (campus situation) you have to listen to an audio clip, remember the important points in it and then answer the questions based on it in 45-60 seconds. Overall duration of this section is 17 minutes.
Although the TOEFL Writing section is quite a different section, it should be comfortable section for those who have already appeared for GRE. You are required to write two essays: Integrated Essay and Independent Essay.
