About Final Speaking Test

Filed under: announcements,final speaking exam — richardlstansfield @ 1:51 am

* 2 Telephone Conversations

Conversation One

Student A: You are a math teacher. You collected homework today in class. During your conversation, you spill your coffee. Interrupt and Restart your conversation.

Student B: You are a student. You were absent from class today. You want to give your homework to your teacher. You call your teacher to ask if you can meet tomorrow in the teacher’s office. Begin the conversation with “Ring, ring.”

Conversation Two

Student A: You won a writing contest. The prize was two free tickets to a movie. You want to invite your friend (Student B) to come with you. You call your friend. Begin the conversation with “Ring, ring.”

Student B: You are Student A’s friend. During your conversation, a delivery boy arrives at the door with a pizza. Interrupt and Restart your conversation.

–> You must be either Student A in both conversations or Student B in both conversations. (This is so that each student can “Interrupt the Conversation” and “Restart the Conversation.”

* 2 Short Conversations

Example:

A: Every month I say to my boss, “I need a rice.”

B: I don’t get it.

A: A “rice.” The word I’m looking for means “more money.”

B: Oh, I get it! You mean a “raise.”

–> Sentences to use in this are:

– I don’t get it. // Can you say that again, please? // What do you mean? // I have no idea what you are talking about.

– The word I’m looking for … // What do you/we call … ? // What’s it called? // It’s used for … // You see it … // It looks like …

– Oh, I get it! // I know what you mean. // Oh, I see!

* Asking Each Other 1 Discussion Question (2 in Total)

From each presentation, one discussion question will be chosen or made up.
