How to do well in your Final Speaking Test

Filed under: announcements,final speaking exam — richardlstansfield @ 3:37 am

– When asking your partner a question, use good stress and rhythm.

– When answering a question, use complete sentences.

– When answering a questions, give details.

How many questions you answer is not important. How well you answer each question is important. Quality is more important than quantity.

………………..

Example: A: Which do you like better, e-mail or letters?

“A”-quality answer

A: Which do you like better, e-mail or letters?

B: I like e-mail better, even though it’s less personal than a letter. E-mail is quicker, and you can send photos with e-mail, as attachments. It’s also more convenient, because you can send e-mail from any computer or from your cell-phone.

“B”-quality answer

A: Which do you like better, e-mail or letters?

B: I like e-mail better because it’s quicker, and you can send photos with e-mail, as attachments.

“C”-quality answer

A: Which do you like better, e-mail or letters?

B: I like e-mail better because it’s quicker.

“D”-quality answer

A: Which do you like better, e-mail or letters?

B: I like e-mail better.

“F”-quality answer

A: Which do you like better, e-mail or letters?

B: E-mail.

………………..

Also …

–> Don’t speak too slowly or too quickly.

–> Don’t speak too quietly. (You don’t have to be loud. Just be loud enough for your partner and I to hear you easily.)

–> Don’t hesitate or pause.

e.g. “Ummm … I like e-mail better … uhhh … because it’s quicker. You can … 뭐지? … send a picture as an … 뭐라고? … attachment.”

If you are trying to remember something, then say, “Let me think …”

–> Mistakes in grammar, vocabulary, or pronunciation are not a problem if I can understand you without difficulty.

–> Do not miss your appointment!

I only have one week to test all of my students, so I cannot reschedule. So if you miss your appointment, you miss the test, and you get 0 out of 30%. Also, you will be marked absent for the whole week (3 hours).

–> Do not be late!

You and your partner only have 10 minutes for this test. That is only 5 minutes for each student. It is worth 30% of your final grade. So, for every minute you are late, you will lose 6 marks.

If your partner is not there, go into the room anyway. Do not be late because of your partner. (I will do the test with you alone.)

* Please wait inside the classroom. Time is very tight.
