FCE Speaking Part 1 Technique
Below is a dictation video based on part 1 of the Speaking paper.
I advise copying down this dictation so you have a written version of the best technique to use when preparing for this part of the exam. You can write down the dictation here.
You will also find the full exercise with answers and explanations on the Use of English part 2 page of this course.
FCE Speaking Part 1 Teacher Examples
Here are some example videos I made from a real lesson I did with a student. She was preparing for the CAE: C1 Advanced exam. I give example answers to some typical part 1 questions that she asks me. The questions and answers will be useful for the FCE exam.
I recommend watching the first video and writing some comments about the answer. E.g.:
Do you think it's a good answer?
Did I use good language?
You will then watch the same video again with my comments on the screen. Compare your own thoughts with mine.
Remember you can put subtitles on the videos - these are auto generated so are not 100% perfect.
Okay, do you have a pen/pencil and piece of paper ready?
Then let's watch the first video...
Have you written down your ideas and thoughts about the answer?
Good, then let's see watch the video again with my comments...
I give long answers to the questions. This was to help my student think of ideas. You shouldn't speak for as long as this in the exam.
