Information Updates: Speaking Test

Filed under: final speaking exam — richardlstansfield @ 1:41 am

– You cannot read (of course!).

– Please wait inside the classroom.

– It’s a good idea to write your script. If your partner is late or does not come, you will start on time with Mr. Stansfield. Mr. Stansfield will be your partner and you can get full marks.

– Don’t speak too softly or too loudly. Speak loudly enough for your partner and Mr. Stansfield to hear you clearly.

– Don’t speak too slowly or hesitate or pause too much. (e.g. “I like … ummm … Halloween best because … uhh … you can put on a … 뭐지? … costume and go to a … 뭐라고? … party.”) If you are thinking or trying to remember something, you can use the phrase “Let me think …”

– When you answer a discussion question, you should use complete sentences and give some details.

– In the Telephone Conversation, you must be Student A in both conversations, or Student B in both conversations. However, in the two short conversations, you and your partner take turns starting the conversation. In other words, you will be Student A in one conversation, and Student B in the other.
