  • Hi!

  • So, you've done all your preparation and practiced your English a lot, and now you want to know what you can do during the exam.

  • Here are five tips to help you get the best mark in your next speaking exam.

  • Number one: Remember, it's not a race, so slow down!

  • Before you speak, think carefully about what you want to say and speak a little slower than normal.

  • Number two: If you don't understand the question or the activity, don't worry.

  • Ask the examiner to explain it again.

  • You can say something like, "Could you repeat that, please?"

  • Number three: When you're asked a question, don't just say "yes" or "no" as your answer.

  • The examiner wants to know how good your English is!

  • So, try to explain your answer with a reason.

  • Say "Yes, I agree because ..." or "No, I don't think so, because ..."

  • Number four: Look at the examiner's or other students' faces and eyes when you speak.

  • Faces can tell you a lot!

  • If you see that the examiner or your partner don't understand you, then say it again using different words.

  • And finally, number five: Speak clearly so that the examiner can hear you.

  • If you find this difficult, practice with a friend at home.

  • Stand at opposite ends of a room and speak to each other in English.

  • Or speak to each other in English online or on the phone.

  • OK, so these are our top five tips, but just one final piece of advice.

  • Your teacher or examiner are only human, and usually they will really want you to do well.

  • So, take a deep breath, smile, relax and good luck with your next speaking exam!
