On this page we take a look at the speaking test Part 3 and how to give a better Part 3 speaking performance.
Look at this CAE example. In Part 3 of the Advanced or CAE Speaking test you will collaborate with your partner to discuss a question and topics related to that question.
Tip #1 Listen and respond to your partner
Tip #2 Avoid interrupting
Tip #3 Give opinions
Tip #4 Share the time
Tip #5 Use language naturally
In comparison with other parts of the speaking test there is a lot of specific interaction in the Part 3 task and it is essential that candidates do interact as much as they can. Apart from the potentially positive effect on the overall score it can also help the candidates deal more confidently with the extended questions in Part 4.
