In Part 3 of the speaking paper candidates will need to work with their partner to discuss a task given to you by the examiner. Candidates will be given a main question with different prompts indicating what they should discuss. Candidates will be required to discuss the task for two minutes and then the examiner will give you a decision-making task which they will also need to discuss with their partner for around one minute.
The main focus of this part of the exam is to test your ability to not only express opinions and arguments, but also test how well you interact with your partner, exchange ideas and respond to each other appropriately. You will be judged on your use of grammar, vocabulary pronunciation, discourse management and interactive communication.
Below are some useful phrases to engage in discussion that candidates can use to help them communicate their partner.
