It is fine to hesitate before responding during the TOEFL, but students lose points for large gaps. As such, they must seek out opportunities to practice speaking English, especially with native speakers. If not living in an English-speaking country, students may need to hire a tutor or join an English class. On their own, students can practice the speaking task by making a list of topics and talking about them in an organized manner. Since students also lose points for incomprehensible pronunciation, they should limit their use of large words to the ones they can pronounce accurately. Movies and CDs in English are an excellent resource for practicing pronunciation since students can pause and repeat what they heard.
