Fun and Free Time

Practice for part 2 of the B2 First (FCE) speaking paper with this exam simulation video all about things people do for fun and in their free time.

The video is designed for you to practice with a partner where one of you will be “Candidate A” and the other will be “Candidate B”. You can also practice on your own by answering all the questions for both candidates yourself.

You will be showed two images and will be required to answer a question about the images. You will need to speak for around one minute. A countdown timer will appear when you are approaching one minute and you will hear the examiner say thank you at which point you should stop talking. The examiner will then ask your partner a question related to the photos.

You should practice and repeat these questions many times until you can answer all the questions comfortably, confidently and fluently.

In this part of the test I’m going to give each of you two photographs.

I’d like you to talk about your photographs on your own for about one minute, and also to answer a question about your partner’s photographs.

Candidate A. It’s your turn first.

Here are your photographs.

They show people looking at different things.

I’d like you to compare the two photographs and say why the people are looking at these things.

Thank you.

Candidate B. What type of places you enjoy visiting for a day out?

Thank you.

Now, candidate B, here are your photographs.

They show people doing different sports.

I’d like you to compare the photographs and say what the people are enjoying about these sports.

Thank you.

Candidate A, tell me about the type of sports you enjoy doing the most.

Thank you.
