Hello! My name is IE Examiner. Can you tell me your full name please?
In this first part, I'd like to ask you some questions about yourself. So first of all, let's talk about birds.
Are there many birds near your home?
How do you feel about birds?
Do any birds have any particular significance in your country?
Do you think birds should be protected?
How can birds be protected?
Now, let's talk about seasons.
Which season do you like best? Why?
What do people do in this season?
Do you think the seasons have changed in recent years, compared to the past?
Now, let's move on to talk about bicycles.
Are bicycles popular in your city?
Do you often ride a bicycle?
What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of bicycles compared to cars or public transport?
Do you think bicycles are suitable for present society?
OK, I’m now going to give you a topic and I’d like you to talk about that topic for one to two minutes. Before you start to talk, you’ll have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make notes if you wish on this paper. Do you understand?
I'd like you to describe one of your neighbours.
Describe one of your neighbours. You should say: how long you have known this neighbour what sort of person they are how often you see them and explain what kind of relationship you have with them.
OK, so remember you have one to two minutes for this, so don't worry if I stop you. I'll tell you when the time is up. Can you start speaking now please?
OK, we've been talking about one of your neighbours and now I'd like to discuss with you one or two more general questions related to this.
Do you think neighbours are important?
What are the qualities of a good neighbour?
Now that most people watch a lot of TV, how do you think this has affected relationships with neighbours?
Do you think it's important to teach children how to have good relations with neighbours?
How has the relationship between neighbours changed over the last 20 years?
In your country, are there any facilities for improving relations between neighbours?
Thank you. That is the end of the speaking test.
