How to improve your speaking.
Perhaps for many students the easiest part of the exam to pass, but the part that worries and stresses most students.
If you’re going to regular English classes, you should be getting speaking practice in class. If not, speak to your teacher.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE EXAM?
4 parts – 14 minutes (2 minutes, 4 minutes, 4 minutes, 4 minutes.
Part 1 – Introductions and answering questions on personal information.
Speak about your family, home, job/studies, hobbies, holidays, future plans etc.
Part 2 – Photos – you speak for one minute each and make a comment (about 30 seconds) after your partner has spoken.
Compare two photographs. Give your opinion and say how the photographs make you feel. Listen and answer the question that the examiner asks you about the photos.
Part 3 – You speak together with your partner. This is a discussion and decision-making task.
Give (and justify) your opinion, make suggestions, agree (or disagree) with your partner, speculate and evaluate and try to reach a decision through negotiating.
Part 4 – A discussion expanding the topic in Part 3. The examiner will ask you and your partner questions.
Continue and develop the theme from part three. Give your opinion, speculate and agree or disagree with the examiner and your partner.

and an examiner.
