In part 1 of the Speaking exam, the examiner asks questions about you. These questions may be on topics such as: your likes and dislikes, your family and friends, your English studies, or even what you have 1 __________ doing recently. There 2__________ be a question about the future or some other general questions. This part of the exam is designed to 3__________ you feeling comfortable. I created a four step technique to help you prepare for this part of the exam. The first step is to think of questions related 4 _________ the topics I mentioned earlier. The next step is to prepare some answers to 5 ________ questions. You don’t want to speak for 6 _________ long or the examiners might view you unfavourably. I advise about 30 seconds per answer. You also 7 ________ not rehearse scripts before the exam. Next, I recommend getting someone you know to ask you the questions you have prepared in an exam setting. Finally, I recommend learning 8 ________ others. There are lods of videos of other students practising Speaking part 1 exercises on my website.
