    Hi there. Thank you for evaluating my previous answer.
    It was really helpful for me and I practiced many times again.
    In this time, the topic was unfamiliar and he talked very fast, but I tried it.
    Please kindly correct my answer. Thank you so much.

    (My answer)
    In this lecture, the professor explained about two kinds of leadership.
    The first one is “strategic leadership” which includes vision, culture and values that the company has.
    The second one is “operational leadership” which incluses policies, procedures, and leadership behavior.
    The professor believes that “operational leadership” is more important.
    Firstly, it influence the employees to be passionate or not. Secondly, it influence customers to feel like they are being taking care of or not. Thirdly “operational leadership” is daily basis. That’s why “operational leadership” is more important.

      Hi @Minako,

      The Score: 4/4

      The response presents a clear progression of ideas and conveys the relevant information required by the task. It includes appropriate detail, though it has minor errors and omissions.

      Instead of “Thirdly operational leadership is daily basis.”, you should say “That’s why operational leadership, on a daily basis, is more important.”

      To be daily basis is not a reason for being more important. Strategic and operational leadership are both important (in the long term). But, operational leadership is more important on a daily basis.

      Pronunciation is much better. It is clear that you pay more attention.
      It might be useful to check the pronunciation of the following words:

      strategic
      operational
      professor
      influence

      It seems that you have difficulties with the letters “r” and “l“.

      Grammar corrections:

      1. “Firstly, it influence(s) the employees … Secondly, it influence(s) customers …”
      “s” is missing!

      2. “… customers to feel like they are being taking care of or not.” – Wrong –
      “… customers to feel like they are being TAKEN care of or not.” – Correct –

      Spelling correction:

      incluses (wrong) / includes (correct)

      One tip for Writing Section: We highly recommend you to spend the last 5 minutes to check spelling and grammar errors, while answering writing questions.

      Remember! In the real exam, for the 6th question, you will have 20 seconds to prepare.

      Continue to answering other questions. Practice makes perfect.

      Hi @Prerna,

      The Score: 4/4

      The response is sustained, presents a clear progression of ideas and conveys the relevant information required by the task. It covers all key points in the lecture. Well done! You made an amazing job in 60 seconds.

      Speech is generally clear. But it includes minor difficulties with pronunciation and intonation.

      If you submit your written response we can evaluate language use (e.g. grammatical structures and vocabulary) in detail.

      The most important issue that you should improve is pronunciation and intonation. If you submit your written response, we can prepare an audio record for your response, as well. So, you can practice pronunciation.

      Hi @Yauya,

      Welcome to the TOEFL Speaking Community 🙂

      The Score: 3/4

      IMPORTANT NOTE: Because of background noise and distractions, your response requires listener effort and it is very difficult to understand. Please, listen to your response before submitting.

      The response addresses the task appropriately, but falls short of being fully developed.

      Minor difficulties with pacing are noticeable.

      The response time for Question Type 6 is 60 seconds. You should conclude your response in the last 5 seconds.

      If you resubmit your response (with clear speech), it would be great. Also, if you submit your written response, we can evaluate language use (grammar and vocabulary) in detail.

      Hi @MarisolR,

      The Score: 3/4

      The response addresses the task appropriately, but falls short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression, though it exhibits some noticeable lapses in the expression of ideas.

      Speech is generally clear. Your pronunciation is good.

      Response exhibits some imprecise and inaccurate use of vocabulary and grammatical structures, which do not seriously interfere with the communication of the message.

      Our recommendations for you:

      While listening, identify key points and take notes effectively.
      During preparation, organize your notes and plan your response.

      So you will avoid lapses and difficulties with pacing. Also, you will be more comfortable and you won’t make any grammatical or vocabulary errors.

      Finally, you should state that Operational Leadership is more important and you should explain why? (It is not clear from your response.)

      Then, your response will be accurate and complete.

      Minor correction:
      Operational leadership (not operation leadership)

      You had time (10 more seconds) and you could use that time to develop your response. (Response time for Question Type 6 is 60 seconds.)

      Note: You can try to answer this question one more time (listen again, take notes). We believe your response will be much better. It will also help you to see how it should be and you will be more comfortable.
