Speaking test video: examiner feedback
Part 1
Philipp is a fluent, confident speaker who always answers the questi
ons appropriately and
with full extension.
He produces some very natural and effective spoken discourse markers, I will definitely; Oh,
no, I hate it!; It really depends on; That’s an interesting question, and puts his ideas together
He shows a good degree of control of grammatical form and uses a range of appropriate
vocabulary to talk about all the topics discussed, an internship; a little chat; more personal;
really annoying; spam emails; a symbol for freedom; a rural area; the steering wheel.
His pronunciation is generally clear but occasionally his rapid delivery and a
slightly flat
intonation mean he can be less easy to follow than he otherwise might be
Tips for Part 1
• Part 1 questions all focus on familiar personal topics so relax and use this section
to settle in.
• Try to answer the questions as fully as you can, giving reasons for your replies. You
don’t have wait for the examiner to ask!

Part 2
Philipp gives a very full description of the hotel, addressing all the prompts especially
regarding the facilities and why he liked staying there. He has plenty of ideas and has clearly
used the preparation time well.
Although he comes to a halt before the end of two minutes (partly because he speaks quite
quickly), he does well to resume without the examiner asking him to and thinks of further
details he can offer about the hotel.
He shows good control of grammar once again and has a very adequate range of vocabulary
for the topic.
Philipp’s pronunciation is generally clear and he can be easily understood throughout.
Tips for Part 2
• There are always three prompts and then another asking for a summary of your
feelings or opinion. Write notes on each of the prompts so you have plenty to say.
• When preparing, write a few word for each idea instead of writing sentences – once
you’ve read out your sentences you may not know how to continue!
Part 3
Again, Philipp takes every opportunity to answer the questions as fully
as possible. He is very
fluent with only occasional hesitation when he searches for a word or phrase.
He responds very naturally with a good range of idiomatic cohesive devices, oh, several
things; the other thing, of course, is … ; maybe that’s why … ; It depends on … ; Actually, … .
His control of grammar is good and he displays a flexible range of vocabulary w
ith some
less-common items.
His pronunciation is clear and he shows some very effective use of stress. However, with so
many ideas spilling out, his intonation can be a little flat and monot
Tips for Part 3
• Part 3 is a good opportunity for you to show the extent of your language
so try to
develop your ideas as fully as you can, and use some exciting or less-co
• Don’t worry too much about making mistakes – everyone make them and they
unlikely to interfere with communication. Examiners tend to note the good features
more than the bad ones!

Fluency and Coherence
Philipp is very fluent and rarely loses coherence. He always responds as fully as possible and
displays a wealth of ideas. He uses a wide range of cohesive devices ver
y naturally. At times,
however, he speaks very quickly. It would be better if he slowed down a little and developed
individual ideas further. This might also help with his intonation, which is sometimes slightly
Lexical Resource
Philipp displays an effective and appropriate lexical resource at all times. There are some good
examples of less-common items too, flat-sharing platforms; privacy; overall appearance; a
golden bathtub; the customers appreciate; feel like a king for a week; improved quality.
Grammatical Range and Accuracy
Philipp has good control of grammar and structure and performs well throughout the interview.
Sometimes, structures can be a little repetitive as he goes through so many examples in
his responses. It is possible that he doesn’t show the full complexity of grammar that he is
capable of because of this. There are some errors particularly with verb tense, I will have an
internship (I’m going to do an internship); I’m coming from … (I come from).
Philipp’s pronunciation is good and he is always easy to understand. Individual phon
emes are
occasional mispronounced, particularly some vowel sounds as in flet-sharing pletforms (flat-
sharing platforms). He shows some excellent use of sentence stress but needs to develop a
more varied use of intonation.
Global comments
A strong, confident performance. Philipp uses the interview very effectively to answer as
fully as possible at all times. He is relaxed and responds very naturally. At times, a slightly
slower, less urgent delivery might mean he could develop ideas into greater complexity and
show even greater ability with more varied intonation, but this is, nevertheless, an impressive
