This section of the Speaking test gives you the opportunity to speak for longer on a topic.
You will be given one minute to prepare to talk about the topic on the task card. A pencil and paper will be provided for you to make notes.
You will have to talk for 1-2 minutes, and then the examiner will ask you one or two questions on the same topic. Part 2 takes 3-4 minutes in total.
TIPS ON SPEAKING PART 2
1.Do not memorize any topic
It is usually very clear that an answer has been memorized as it sounds very unnatural to the examiner. Examiners have a lot of experience interviewing people and they can easily see when something isn’t quite right. If they suspect that the answer has been memorized they will probably interrupt your answer and move on to another question.
Secondly, if you have memorized an answer it is very unlikely that it will actually answer the question directly and this will be another signal to the examiner that something isn’t quite right.
Be confident while answering to the examiner. It gives a positive impact of your personality and also increases your band score.
3.Do not take cue- card as a question answer round-
Always read the bullet ed questions provided by examiner carefully. However ensure to speak it as a speech rather than just focusing on answering to the question.
Try to include contraction in your speaking as it makes your speaking sound more natural and authentic .
5.Speak in the form of story-
Making use of Colloquialisms (informal language or slang) can add a personal touch to your speech. You don’t have to focus much on your accent, your natural way of speaking is always acceptable, and adding slang like the best thing I’ve ever seen or it was a piece of cake will make the examiner more connected to your story.
