Speaking exams can be stressful! What if you don't understand the examiner? What if you don't know the exact word you need? Don't panic! This section has loads of tips and advice on how to survive your next speaking exam.
Speak without words! (non-verbal language)
- Mime what you want to say.
- Nod your head to show that you understand.
- Remember! In English-speaking cultures it is polite to look at the person you are speaking to in the eye. It is not rude.
- Look confused when you don’t understand. This tells the person you are speaking to that you would like an explanation.
