Thank you Atul for your amazing webpage and all this very helpful information that you put together here.I had my speaking test today and here are a couple of questions that I can remember. Some of them were super weird. I am very comfortable to have conversations and discussions in english and wasn’t nervous at all but then I had so many different topics in part 1 and some weird questions. Then, I got a topic in part 2 where I just didn’t really know what to say. Anyhow, here the questions.
10th of Feb, Germany
Part 1:
-what is your full name
-where are you from?
-which part of your country are you from?
-do you like your hometown?
-can you imagine to live and work in your home town?
-do you like doing housework?
-what kind of housework do you often do?
-is there some task of housework that you don’t like to do?
-did you have to help in the household when growing up?
-do you think it is important to help in the household as a child?
-did you learn how to play an instrument
-do you think it is better to learn an instrument at a young age?
-do you think music should be tought in school?
some more about that
Part 2:
A situation where you weren’t allowed to use your mobile phone (When, why, …)
(how can I possibly talk about something like this for 2 minutes?)
part 3:
-Internet/mobile phone
-what do you think about storing data online?
-how do you think mobile phones changed social interactions (positive/negative)
-What do you think about the quality of conversations in social networks?
-… A lot more. I always tried to give long answers but the examiner kept interrupting and asking the next question. Not sure if that was a good thing.
Hope this helps some of you, I for sure found it useful to look at speaking questions of others.
