Final Speaking Exam

Filed under: final speaking exam,Tests/Exams — richardlstansfield @ 5:44 am

You will do two tasks. You will have a maximum of four minutes.

No reading. No Power Point presentations. Just you talking.

Task 1: Give Advice to Two People

* Your friend JP can’t find a job. He gets low test scores, has no work experience, doesn’t dress smartly, and is often tired. He asks you, “What should I do?”

* Your friend Michael is having difficulty with his studies. He is having trouble organizing his time. He asks you, “What should I do?”

Task 2: Describe Two Objects

Describe two objects. You can describe a TV (television), a flashlight, a radio, a microwave oven, a hammer, a vacuum cleaner, a shopping trolley, or something else.

You can mention the following:
– functions
– colour
– shape
– size
– features
– weight
– price
– materials
– number of parts
– where you find it
– advantages
– disadvantages

Instructions

 Arrive early and wait inside.

During the mid-term exams, some people came in late. Here are two real examples.

Real Example #1

Student: I’m ready to do my exam now.
Teacher: You missed your exam.
Student: My exam is at 2:40.
Teacher: No, your exam was at 1:40.
Student: 헐 …

Real Example #2

Student: I’m ready to do my exam now.
Teacher: You missed your exam. It was at 1:40.
Student: I was outside at 1:30.
Teacher: So why didn’t you come inside and take your exam?
Student: I don’t know.
Teacher: I don’t know either.

* So, for the final speaking exam:

– come early, and
– come inside and wait.

The teacher will not go outside and call you to come it. You should be inside the classroom when it is time for your exam.

* If anyone misses their final speaking exam, they get zero (0/25) points.

* If anyone comes in late, they will receive penalties as follows:
1 minute late: – 25%
2 minutes late: – 50%
3 minutes late: – 75%
4 minutes late: missed the exam  0 points

Remember that this counts from the time that you begin speaking, not from the time that you arrive.
