A successful candidate in the Cambridge Advanced speaking test is someone who can demonstrate a wide variety of language adn organisation in their speaking. They are also accurate in their grammar and in their pronunciation of sounds.
These are very general questions , typically about things like routines and leisure activities. Answer them as well as you can.
Choose two out of three pictures in the exercise and answer both questions.
Each topic is discussed by both candidates. Interaction is key here and be sure to involve your partner in the discussion. In the second part of the task you are asked to make a choice but you do not have to agree with your partner’s opinion.
Answer the questions you are asked in as much detail as you can. Make sure that you listen to your partner as you will have to respond to what they say.
