thanx all for your help. I'm really appreciated. I have had a look at all the speaking questions you had in the test. I just wonder how you could get the idea and deliver your answer in a very short time. WEll, I do not have any idea with some questions :(
Aniway, thanx a lot. I will have the test Dec 3rd. I took the PPT, but not satisfied with the scored I got. So, another, another and another :)) God bless us!

It is always a good idea to speak slowly and clearly, have an introduction, answer the question, give an example and have a conclusion. Always use all the time or most of the time given to answer the question. No 30 second answers for #1 & 2 and no 45 seconds answers for #3-6. Good luck, I will continue to post the earlier questions as I come across those questions.

Hey folks, how are you doing?

One more time, I stop by to invite you guys to join a study group that is happening almost every day at 7:00pm (New York time). Right now there are just 2 participants, but we would be happy to welcome more people to join us. We are meeting through "Skype", so you just need a microphone.

Unfortunately, my test is just around the corner. It is gonna be on October 18th, so I would say that if you wanna join us, I must hear from you as soon as possible.

Thanks again, and if you are interested you can e-mail me directly.

Hi guys!

Tseprep thank you for your help! I am going to take the test in November, 10 and I am confused with a speaking part. As for many people I need 26 points too.
Could you give me an example of answer for #1 or 2, please?
I listened to responses of people from www.ESL-Pro.com (http://www.ESL-Pro.com) but I thought that their responses were very short :hmm: and we would need to tell more..
Am I right?

Thanks.

Now the ETS will contact you, it just may take a while. If you are in a hurry to take the test, you may have to pay another test. However I might mention that you have a case # and maybe they won't charge you. If you time or want to study before you take the test, wait for ETS to contact you and set a test date at that time. Good Luck!

Hi,
As you know the questions were not the same. I think there won't be same questions in any exams . may be ETS- has adjusted exam dates & times around the world in such a way that noone will get the same questions. But i do get help for the 1st question of speaking from the questions posted here. . This time i tried to relax & spoke, then i didn't get time to finish.so i can say i didn't do well.
thanks

#1 What are you good at? (sports, studying etc.)

#2 Do you plan everything for your free time or don't plan anything. I think it was what do you prefer.

Writing 1

Reading: Cost to preserve old houses.

#1 Building not up to code
#2 Prevent development
#3 Cost too much (government spends money on the old house, or have to give tax break)

Lecture: Not true!

#1 Code can be updated
#2 Development can be from out side developer not what the community wants.
#3 Old buildings bring in tourist and help local economy

Writing #2

Group work and getting the same grade in high school or college, do you agree or disagree

The questions are not exact but I hope you will get the idea of the questions.

#1 something about food, not exactly but a main idea: What food will you offer your guests which came to your home?

#2 Do you prefer to get information from books or the Internet? Why?

An essay topic: observing or studying animals a lot can teach about human nature? Do you agree or disadree?

If some one coming from other country, which kind of meal would your serve? why?

Krish_chita
11-13-2006, 09:35 PM
I think the question was
"If some one from foreign country visiting your hometown and you need to serve a meal, what kind of preparations you will do?"

I answered appropriately to the above question in the exam.

If you think the question was " which kind of meal would your serve to foreign visitor?" -- I will probably get zero score for my response.

Please let me know which question was right?

Hi!

1. the most efficient transportation system in your country

2. Is music education necessary ?

I got really nervous, couldn't hardly speak and I didn't finish my answers. I got 20 on this section. So it was not so bad but I guess it is not so difficult to get more.

Some advice: learn the templates, they are very useful, and use the connectors (first, second, additionally...)

2)People think childhood is very great...do u think its grt and why?(sorry if I am interpreting wrong....)

Writing topic is
Many people make decisions by taking suggestions from others and some decide by themselves...Do u agree with it or not?

For listening, some of my friends tell me that it is delivered as quickly as in Barron. Is it right? How about the topic of speaking and writing that you guys get? Thanks in advance for your sharing and being helpful.
