Speaking Test (May 5, 2017)
Part 1
-Do you work or study?
-Do you think you work harder on some days?
-What do you do after a long day at work?
-Do you like robots?
-Do you watch films with robots in it as a child?
-Would you want one (robot) at home?
-What do you think about robots driving your car?
-Will you buy a robot?
Part 2
– Talk about a celebrity you know.
– What do you know about this celebrity before his/her fame?
– What do you like about this celebrity?
(I answered all the questions in the cue card in less than 2 minutes because I talked too fast, so, she had a follow up question regarding the person I discussed.)
Do you think she would stop her work? (Guys, I talked about Gina Lopez. I read about her in the newspaper lying on the table in the waiting area while I was waiting for my name to be called for the speaking test. It was meant to relax myself, little did I know that i could use her for the speaking test, hehe.)
Part 3
-Do you think all celebrities have talent?
-Do you think it is important that they have a talent?
-Why do you think people like celebrities?
-What do you think celebrities should do to protect their privacy?
-Who do you think will benefit from publicity?
BTW, the examiner wasn’t very friendly. I was pretty confident at first but I faltered towards the last part when we were talking back and forth. Anyway, my point is, don’t expect the examiner to be open and friendly. Just try to remain calm even if you can’t think of an answer right away. Also, don’t forget to smile.
