PET SPEAKING PART 2: Listen carefully

Во второй части устного экзамена PET проверяются Ваши коммуникативные навыки, поэтому, на мой взгляд, она является самой сложной из четырех: Вы работаете в паре, должны использовать правильную лексику и Вам с собеседником нужно придти к единому мнению.

PET SPEAKING PART 2


speak_clearly_logoTIPS

  • You should talk to your partner, but make sure you speak clearly so that the examiner can also hear you.
  • Talk about all the ideas in the task, and suggest others if you can.
  • Remember to talk about the things in the picture - don't just talk generally.
  • Make sure you show interest in what your partner is saying. Try to respond to what they say.
  • You will need to keep this discussion going for two to three minutes.
  • If you have time, try to summarise the reasons for your final choice in the end.
  • Remember to look at your partner when you are speaking - not the interlocutor.
