- good Hello - good. How are you? Hello. How are you? I'm good. So let me just introduce to a you to everybody. So this is pankaj and he is a working professional and he's interested in taking the aisles test and my right pocket. Yes, you are. So I'm blind Exiles and a month or so. Okay, and since you want to go for higher education, so I'm going to take academic module, right? Yes. Okay. So I've scheduled today's talk to tell you all about the speaking module and how you can hire in picking pot. Okay? Okay. I'll tell you how many parts are there. Are and what the speaking module is all about? Okay old speaking is the test with apples on a different day as the other test or it might happen on the same day as well depending on whatever they dates you get. So the test is a face-to-face interview with the examiner and if you're taking the academic or general module or pain table base or computer-based this part Remains the Same? Every test taker has to meet the examiner to have the face-to-face conversation and it is going to be of 11 to 14 minutes. So on designated day when you reach the test center you will have a time and that's when your test will start. So the first thing that will happen is that the examiner is going to tell his or her name to you and ask your name. So you please make sure that you tell your full name to him then he or she is going to ask you for your passport for the identification and after checking all that he's going to start. God exam. Okay. So thank this passport mandatory for the speaking test, or should we carry any other? Not really. Actually mandatory, it's actually mandatory because that's what that's how you will go abroad, right? Yo, you need to have a valid passport. So they check it at that point of time. Okay. So the there are three parts to the speaking module. And the first one is an introduction and a short interview and the examiner is going to ask you questions about your Elf and topics which are very familiar to you. So the examiner just simply asks you or number of straightforward questions about yourself like about your work or your family friends job or your house or some questions, which are about the things that you do so your likes or dislikes or your hobbies or whether you think about books computers internet and so on. Okay so bold Yeah, I was small question. So is this just a nice be picking this a Christian or will I be graded on this also pankaj our voices breaking could you repeat that, please? So what I was asking was is this ice-breaking session or will I be graded on this section also know it's sort of an icebreaker. But yes, you will be marked as soon as the test starts everything you say and do is going to be examined and checked by the exam. Even though it's sort of an introduction with you. It is what's checked and the examiners constantly mocking you, okay? So the in the first part is basically kept so that you get an opportunity to overcome any nerves that you have and to demonstrate that you can speak a few lines about your basic familiar topics. So to give you an example, you can be asked a question. Like where is your hometown or what? Are you studying at the moment or what is your job? Do you live in a house or a flat and something like that? Okay. So in order to score high here what is recommended by us is that you speak in at least about three to four sentences? So the answers shouldn't be too short and neither. Should they be too long? Can you please provide his example here? Yeah, sure. So for example, if the question is what are you studying at the moment? So you could say I'm studying literature at the University of Delhi. It's a three year course and I like it because it's informative and fascinating. I'm in the final year. So it will be sad to finish okay in three to four sentences but not too long. Okay, okay. All right. So let's move on to the next part. Now. The second part is pretty tricky and a lot of people get nervous about this. It's actually a talk. So the is going to give you a card which is called a cue card and there's going to be a question written on it. Also along with the main question. There will be some sub-points written and you will have one. Want to make notes on it and when that one minute time finishes you will have to speak on that topic for about one to two minutes and we generally advise that you speak continuously for the whole time and let the examiner stop you after the tumors that the examiner has a complete opportunity to check your fluency your vocabulary. and whether you can speak and give a talk without stopping in between Okay, and again the topic in this part is very familiar and something based on your personal experiences or your feelings. So for example, something like when was the last time you went out and where did you go? Okay. So is there any ideal way way how to answer these questions? Yes. Yes there is and I'm going to tell you all about it in the latter half, okay? Okay, after this talk comes the last part and that is the final part of your speaking test and it's again a two-way discussion between you and the examiner. We're in the examiner is going to ask you more abstract and general questions based on the topic of part 2. So you are in this part suggested to discuss the questions in more length than in part one. So like I told you for part one you have to speak for about three to four sentences. So here I would suggest that you speak about six to seven sentences and give well-rounded answers and this is where you will demonstrate control of language and your ability to talk about abstract. Ideas, also more in most of the questions you will be asked to give your opinions and then there are various words and vocabulary and sentence structures which you can use and even that is suggested that you have to use a variety of sentence structures or words to show The Examiner that you have a range of vocabulary and you don't don't just repeat. Words or you don't just have limited idea of how you can. Because remember for the ultimate aim of taking the aisles is that you have to go abroad very for higher studies. So when you're there in a foreign country where the mother tongue is English you need to be able to communicate with the native speakers, right? So the examiner checks whether you have that ability or not. So an examiner will basically create your what other factors it would be vocabulary my clothes. Yeah, so it would be for Cadbury my sentence construct the pronunciation as well as grammar, right? Correct. That's right. And each of this cry these criteria. I'm going to tell you in detail. Okay, so so in part one the answers are very straightforward. But again, the examiner will recognize whether you are able to talk related to your familiar topic or not. And most of the time what students do is they memorize the answer because they are readily available online. So I would suggest not to do that because the examiners are trained to Whether you have memorized answers or you are speaking naturally. And in part two, what is important is that you make notes? It's not compulsory that you take that one minute time to make notes, but it's important that you do and you can refer to those notes again and again So that you are able to produce a well-rounded talk you are able to talk for long enough. Okay. Okay, and in part 3 one thing very important is that since the questions are going to be abstract. You need to make sure that your answers are relevant to the topic and you don't go off track. So all your vocabulary and your idea should be based on the topic and in all the three topics in all the three parts. It is important that you take care of your grammar and show a range of vocabulary. And also talk make you talk relevant to the topic. Don't try to imitate native speakers. And don't try to pretend to have an accent. Okay, speak clearly with correct pronunciation and intonation and if you do that and speak with accuracy and fluency, you are most likely to get a 8.5 or even nine months ago. Okay, that's really great. Okay. So now coming to your question. I'm going to discuss all the for criterias that the examiner checks you on. Okay. So in speaking the first one is grammatical range and accuracy. So the examiner is going to use the this criteria to see whether you can use a range of tenses and structures accurately or not. So whatever question you are asked in part 1 they will try to have features of all the varieties of tenses. So something which will force you to use the past tense the present and the future the questions will be based on such types of tenses and automatically you will have to answer based on it. No. very important that you use the right tense Then the name which The Examiner uses fluency so and fluency also include currents. So coherence is how easy it is for the listener to follow your talk and understand your ideas. So just as it is in writing you the notes which you prepare in part to specially will help you to organize and link your ideas in a logical way and there are various ways of doing it also. So you can use linkers and words and phrases like however, but also after that and so on and also it's great if you can use idioms and can logically Peak from one point to the other and also try to give reasons for whatever opinion you give. Okay. Also connecting your ideas using pronouns. Nouns and not using nouns again. And again is something with which The Examiner is going to check then the third Criterion is pronunciation and intonation. So the examiner sees whether your sentence structure and word structure is good or not. And whether you are using the correct International stress communicate your ideas well. Okay, okay. Now there are various ways in which you can improve your score. So the first thing is that of course you have to use linking ideas and you can use them to show a contrast and then you can add a detail so you whenever you are discussing something you can add details like who what when which there and use all these questions to give a good rancer to the I'm gonna okay, then another thing very helpful is giving an example. So whatever point you give to support it, you can give an example in order to show your grammatical structures and range of grammar. You can tell something that you used to do in the past hand something that like to do the future so that you show both the types of tents the stupid exam. And so talk about your preferences to using words. Like I prefer or I'd rather and then the last thing and very important is to give reasons. So let me give you an example and tell you how you can do that. So for example, if there's a question is there much do in your hometown. You can say something like this. Oh, yes. There's certainly lots to do there as it's a fairly big city. If you like going out in the evening, there are many good restaurants and bars. And if you prefer cultural activities, you could visit museums and galleries. Right, so you're giving examples you're giving reasons why you can go to the city and you're giving a sort of sufficient detail to your answer. Okay. Pankaj. Can you hear me? Hello. Yes, I can. Okay. All right. Open Kids one last thing I'd like to tell you is that it's not important that you in the test is true. You can also give free consoles and make up stories The Examiner is not going to check whether You are speaking truth or the facts that you're saying a true he or she is only concerned with the fluency and accuracy of your speaking skills. Right? So often students say that, you know, whatever question which came we don't know how to answer it. We have never had that experience before so it's not important. You can just imagine and create an answer. Okay. Hello. Hello. Hello, are you there? So Hello. Oh, I think the call got disconnected. So I hope I've given enough sufficient detail. And if you guys have any other question related to speaking you can let me know and I'll see you next time.
