The purpose of this part is to give you a chance to talk about a topic in some detail.
You will have to talk about one topic and there will be some questions to give you ideas about what you should talk about. You are given a topic sheet by the examiner and blank paper and pencil. The topics are non-academic and you should just use your general knowledge to answer them.
You will be given one minute to prepare your talk and make any notes you wish on the blank paper. When the examiner asks you to start, try to speak for two minutes on your topic, covering the three bullet points on the task sheet if you can. After two minutes, the examiner will stop you and normally ask one follow up question about the topic. What the examiner will say Now I’m going to give you a topic to talk about for 1 to 2 minutes. Before you talk you have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make some notes if you wish. Do you understand? Here’s a paper and pencil for making notes and here’s your topic [The examiner will give you a card with your topic on it] I’d like you to describe a holiday you enjoyed. [After one minute the examiner will ask you to start] OK, remember, you only have one to two minutes for this so don’t worry if I stop you. You may begin. [Optional follow up question] Would you go back to this place for a holiday? Thank you. May I have to task card paper and pencil back? [Return the pen, paper and task card] At the end of your answer the examiner may ask one question to follow up. You only need to give a short answer to this.
