Speaking - Images - Exam Practice

Uploaded by Graham Stanley, British Council Barcelona (Spain)


The teacher in this videoclip introduces the speaking task to the learners using a drop-down note wih the task written on it. The task is to practise part 2 of the Speaking paper of Cambridge ESOL's First Certificate in English exam, which the learners were preparing to take. The videoclip shows the teacher explaining the task, using text to support it, and then the learners doing the speaking task while keeping an eye on the time (the IWB timer counted down one minute) - getting a feel for speaking for one minute and saying everything they need to say takes practice and using the timer on the IWB as well as displaying the images like this makes it easier for learners to have an idea about how long a minute is and how to organise their discourse.
