IELTS - Speaking Skills - Greeting the Examiner (Part 0)
Terms in this set (10)
The beginning of the speaking test
for the speaking test, you'll be interviewed by an examiner for 12 to 15 minutes. You'll enter a room for such interview. The examiner will ask you around 4 questions before part 1 of the test actually begins. Here're these questions and how you should answer them.
First of all, the examiner will greet with with a good morning or a good afternoon then the examiner will introduce him or herself giving their name. Then they'll ask you about your full name.
Examiner: good afternoon, my name's John Clark. What's your full name? / could you tell me your full name?
How to answer question 1
1- if you're going to use the name of the examiner, don't give a title. So "good afternoon Mister John" is incorrect. Actually titles are NOT used with first names in English.
Correct: good afternoon John
2- when giving your name, don't say "my name IS Connery". For a better answer, use contraction "my name's Connery". This contraction "my name's" is a high level pronunciation that you should use during the rest of your test as well.
3- don't give your name quickly. Give it slowly and clearly because sometimes it's difficult for examiners to hear foreign names.
4- don't forget to smile, relax and look at the examiner in the eyes.
for long foreign names, the examiner might ask you "what can I call you?"
How to answer question 2
you can use one of the following sentences:
- you can call me Con
- just call me Con
- please call me Con
(you can give your English name if you have any)
- you can call me by my English name, Joseph
1- don't explain or give extra information why people call you this!
the examiner will ask you "where are you from?" or "where are you coming from?"
How to answer question 3
You make your answer like this:
- I come from Hong Kong
- I am from Alexandria which is in the north of Egypt
1- don't explain any further, just give the location.
2- don't ask the examiner any question
3- don't give the examiner any recommendations
1- keep your answer simple, short, and accurate
2- Use the English pronunciation of the location where your coming from.
Example: "I am from Cairo" not "I am from Al-Qahira"
can you show me your identification, please?
can you show me your passport, please?
How to answer question 4
- Here you are
- Of course, here you are
- Sure, here it is
identification = ID
keep your answers short "here"
