Speaking Part One: Interview
Good morning/afternoon. My name is ________ and this is my colleague ________.
And your names are?

Where are you from, (Candidate A)?
And you, (Candidate B)?
Address a selection of these questions to the candidates in turn, as appropriate.

Tell me about an interesting hobby you would like to take up in the future.
Do you and your friends share the same ideas and opinions?
Are you planning to do anything special this weekend?
Speaking Part Two: Collaborative Task
Now, in this part of the test, you're going to do something together. Here are some pictures of people in different situations.
First, I'd like you to look at photograph one and discuss what you think the circumstances behind the photo are.
[Candidates speak for about one minute.]
Thank you, Now look at all the photographs.
I'd like you to imagine a leaflet about dangerous and/or exciting jobs is being created for schoolchildren. I want you to talk together about which of these photographs would be appropriate for the leaflet and why.
You have about three minutes for this, so don't worry if I interrupt you.
Speaking Part Three: Long Turn & Discussion
Now, in this part of the test, you're each going to talk on your own for about two minutes. You need to listen while your partner is speaking because you'll be asked to comment afterwards.
So (Candidate A), I'm going to give you a card with a question written on it and I'd like you to tell us what you think. There are also some ideas on the card for you to use if you like.
All right? Here is your card.
Please let (Candidate B) see your card. Remember (Candidate A), you have about two minutes to talk before we join in.
