Listening (conversation or discussion of problems and solution);
Speaking (describe the problem and talk about possible solutions. Your own opinion on how to solve the problem);
20 seconds to prepare.
Describe the man’s problem and suggestions the women makes about what he should do. What do you think the man should do, and why?
Describe the woman’s problem and suggestions her advisor makes about how to solve it. What do you think the women should do, and why?
Describe the man’s problem and suggestions the women makes about what he should deal with it. What do you think the man should do, and why?
The students discuss two possible solutions to the women’s problem. Describe the problem. Then state which of the two solutions you prefer and explain why.
The OPTIMAL time allocation is: 10 seconds for the problem, around 17 seconds for each solution, and 10 seconds for your choice and why, and about 6 seconds pausing throughout your answer.
DO REMEMBER that you HAVE TO state your opinion in your answer. BUT do not spend too much time on that.
Make your answers as SIMPLE as it can be, you really don’t have enough time to cover everything mentioned in the conversation.
DO say “the man/woman offers her/him TWO (or THREE) solutions.” This is to ensure that you get all the solutions even if you can’t finish your answer in time, so the examiner will still give you a good score.
