Elaborate on your answers e.g. Examiner: What type of sports do you like? You: Don’t just say “Football”. Instead say “ I love football because I can interact with the other players competitively
Don’t use “Yes/No” answers
Avoid long pauses.
Listen to the questions carefully. If you can’t understand ask for clarification
Know the sort of topics : e.g. hobbies, food, travel, environment, where you live
If you make a mistake then its ok to correct yourself.
Answer all the points in part 2
Part 3 is the hardest & you might not be able to understand or answer the last couple of questions. Don’t worry - this is so the examiner can assess your proficiency limit.
Use formal expressions in part 3 rather than informal.
