I had my speaking test today.Type : General
Date : 21-Sep-2016
Location : India
Part 1
– Do you work or study?
– Why are you doing this job?
– Which other job would you like to do?
– What will you do in future? (something like that, don’t recall exact question)
– Do you have lots of childhood photos?
– Do you like photos or videos?
– What do you do with the photos you take?
– Did you like reading books in childhood?
– Which books did you read?
– Did you read any book more than once?
Part 2
Describe when you came across a wild animal
– When and where
– What were they doing
– How did they respond seeing you (something like that.. do not remember exactly)
– How did you feel
Part 3
– Is it good to keep animals in zoo?
– What do children learn from animals in zoo?
– Do adults also like to visit zoo? Why?
– Which animals should not be kept in zoo? Why?
– Why do some people keep pet animals?
– What are the benefits of keeping pet animals?
I mentioned a couple of benefits for the last question but the examiner kept on asking for more benefits. She repeated a word 2-3 times asking me about benefits other than that particular word. I really did not understand that word and I said I could not really think of any more benefits at that moment.
I answered all the questions and was able to speak for 2 minutes for part 2 (she had to stop me) but I am not sure if I messed up things towards the end and feeling a bit concerned now.
