Speaking test advice
Follow this Speaking test advice and try to talk fluently.
The Speaking test is a face-to-face conversation with a certified examiner. It is as close to a real-life situation as a test can get.
The examiner will ask you about familiar topics such as home, work or studies in part 1. This should help you feel comfortable when speaking. Try and relax so that you can speak as naturally as possible.
Take time before the test to practice speaking with a partner, friend or teacher.
Make the most of your Speaking test:
try to talk as much as you can
talk as fluently as possible and be spontaneous
relax, be confident and enjoy using your English
develop your answers
speak more than the examiner
ask for clarification if necessary
do not learn prepared answers; the examiner is trained to spot this and will change the question
express your opinions; you will be assessed on your ability to communicate
the examiner’s questions tend to be fairly predictable; practise at home and record yourself
