In the first part the examiner tried to stop me with gestures, because I went beyond the time limit. Perhaps, my answers were rather long. I am worried about the coherency & cohesion. My answers were rather lengthy. I am afraid that my attempt to use collocations was quite obvious. I tried to use collocations that came to my mind while I was speaking, trying to adopt them to the speech.
In the Part 2, I stated that I read novel, but later I mention that as non-fiction, by mistake. I confused the word fiction with non-fiction. Is that so bad? My answer was short, the examiner encouraged me to go on with her hand. I felt that I lost valuable mark, because of short talk on Part 2. I am not satisfied with my performance on this part. Follow-up question was given as well.
Part three was quite a heated discussion, I felt rather confident. One time, I stopped for like 2 seconds, not being able to continue because no word came to my mind. I just used the phrase “How can I explain this”. I know that this is a wrong phrase to use, but i couldn;t help. Can you please point out the things that I did wrong? How badly does that affect on my mark?
