You should be on time and prepared for the interview.

The examiner is provided with a list of standardized questions to ask and will conduct the interview in a manner that you might not be used to if you have not had some previous practice.

The speaking sub-test is a formal one on one interview and is the same for Academic and General training modules.

Do not worry about the interview being recorded. The recording is made to ensure that the examiner conducts the interview properly, and is not used to test your English.

First impressions are very important. You should reply with an answer that is informative and as interesting as possible.

Be willing to talk and be positive.

Do not simply reply yes or no to a question and wait for the next one. Remember the test is your opportunity to speak.

Always sound positive and be confident.

The examiner is looking for the following things:

1: Fluency and Coherence - (Does your speech flow? Can you easily be understood?)

2: Lexical Resource - (Do you use a reasonably wide range of vocabulary in your speech?)

3: Grammatical Range and Accuracy - (Do you use English grammar properly when you speak?)

4: Pronunciation - (Do you use English sounds, stress and intonation patterns, correctly?)
