Practical English Speaking Exams

Here is the basic information for the Practical English speaking exams:


  • Students will do the exams with a partner . For the first series of speaking tests the students will make their own groups.
  • If there is an odd number of students, we will go to groups of 3.
  • The length of the speaking test is 3 minutes per person, so for most groups it will beĀ 6 minutes. Members should try to speak roughly the same amount.
  • Students will be given one of the questions they discussed in class and will have a conversation. They can change the subject if they wish, but all three should be participating in the conversation.
  • Grading is based on grammar accuracy, the amount you speak, using follow-up questions, and the quality of the conversation.
  • The grade is not a shared grade, each member can get a different grade.
  • The first round of exams will take place April 11th and 12th during the class time in the class room. Students only need to come to class at their appointed time. Don’t be late!
