Dear Atul,I know that the examiner is not interested in ideas but only language we present. However, without ideas the fluency, vocabulary will not come out. For example, the question above Why people give more preference to bad news than good news? I practice a bit and can not think of more than 1 reason. And it is under no stress at all. Imagine if I get this question in the exam. I dont think I can answer it. Because I like good news than bad news, then I dont know why people like the opposite (at the speaking time, not after searching for answers from friends). How can we deal with this situation?
