The speaking section assesses your use of spoken English. Every test is recorded.The test consists of an oral interview between the test takers’ and an examiner.In the Speaking Test, you can be totally lying, making up stories and saying things that are unpopular, and still score high. How you say it matters, not what you say.

  • The examiner introduces him/herself and checks the test takers’ identity.
  • They then ask the test takers general questions on some familiar topics such as home, family, work, studies and interests. To ensure consistency, questions are taken from a script.
