IELTS SPEAKING MOCK EXAM
Saint Louis University,BaguioCity
Board for Professional Teachers
Republic of the Philippines.
Experience: 9 years
Hi there, I’m teacher Shenna and I am here to help you develop your English skill. I have been teaching English for almost 9 years which means I have taught a lot of students of all ages.
Strength: I have taught English for many therefore I am very professional. I am very comfortable in teaching and there are no dull moments in my class. I can easily adapt to the level of my students and I know how to determine the needs of my students.
Subjects I can teach: IELTS SPEAKING/ TOEFL SPEAKING/ TOEIC SPEAKING/ JOB INTERVIEW/ ENGLISH CONVERSATION/ IDIOMS AND EXPRESSIONS
TEACHING STYLE: As for my teaching style, I prefer it to be very organized. I usually start with it at least 3 minutes casual conversation, then I proceed with the vocabulary and expressions to be learned, and next is paragraph reading, followed by follow up questions and summary. I ALWAYS LET MY STUDENTS TALK DURING THE CLASS.
Part 1 Introduction and interview: I will introduce myself and ask the student to introduce him/herself and confirm their identity. I will ask general questions on familiar topics, e.g. home, family, work, studies and interests. This section should help the student relax and talk naturally.
Part 2 Individual long turn: I will give you a task card which asks to talk about a particular topic, including points to include in your talk. You will be given one minute to prepare and make notes. You will then be asked to talk for 1-2 minutes on the topic. I will then ask you one or two questions on the same topic.
Part 3 Two-way discussion : I will ask you further questions which are connected to the topic of Part 2. These questions are designed to give you an opportunity to discuss more abstract issues and ideas
TOEFL Speaking Question 1
Independent Speaking (Describe, Opinion):
15 sec to take notes and prepare and 45 seconds to speak
First, you will be asked to describe a place, event, person or activity from your personal experience. So the source of information is you.
The tip I can give you is to have your notes with you so you have the main idea and then 2 supporting ideas.
TOEFL Speaking Question 2
Independent Speaking (Choose, Opinion):
Some people say this is easier that question 1 because the topics are given.
You are given a choice between 2 things and ad you have to give 2 supporting ideas.
Do you prefer to study at night or at daytime
Part 3: Integrated Speaking – Campus Related (Read, Listen, Explain):
First you will read a campus related article, bulletin or letter which presents two reasons for or against a proposal.
• Identify exactly what the proposal is. If you don't have the facts straight you won't be able to speak about it.
• Identify if the reading contains the reasons for or the reasons against the proposal.
Next you will listen to one or two speakers discussing the proposal with strong opinions for or against the proposal.
Integrated Speaking – Campus Related (Listen, Opinion):
You will hear two people discussing a campus related problem and two possible solutions.
• Identify exactly what the problem is. Listen for details that you can use in your response.
• Identify the two solutions. They may not be presented as opposites, but will likely be presented as a poor way of approaching the problem and a preferred or improved way.
Integrated Speaking – Academic Subject (Listen, Explain):
The lecture will be about an academic subject (as in question four). In this case, the professor will define a concept or introduce a phenomenon and then give some examples that illustrate key aspects or perspectives related to it.
Certain key words and phrases act as guideposts to help you understand the different parts of the lecture.
