1. Phase 3 is where the final score is given to a candidate. This is the part of the test where you must excel. Do the best that you can here without trying to hard or getting yourself into problems. Although a number of sources suggest that scores are averaged between the three phases of the speaking test, this stage is where the ‘ceiling’ is established – you can’t get a higher score than your performance in phase 3.
2. Phase 3 is much more like a conversation between you and the assessor. Here he/she doesn’t have a script and can ask you anything he/she wants. If you go off topic, the assessor will make attempts to make sure you stay on topic – there’s no point in rehearsing a speech!
3. Amongst other things, in Phase 3 you will be asked to speculate about the future, give and opinion, suggest a solution to a problem, or describe a process or procedure. Try to come up with a complete answer. If you are asked how you would solve traffic problems world wide, don’t just talk about buying more buses; consider where the money for the buses would come from, explain how you would raise the money for the buses and persuade people who to use them. This will certainly impress the assessor.
4. Make eye contact with the assessor. Although theoretically you could speak great English with your head down, the fact is you may not come across as confident. Although there is no mark for confidence, you need to present yourself in as positive way as possible.
The speaking test is probably the most difficult for candidates because they have to speak to someone. Here are some
Tips For Speaking Test
Phase 1 Tips :
1. In the first phase of the speaking test, the assessor will ask you questions about yourself. Research the topic! The assessor might say “Tell me about your parents’ jobs.” If you don’t know anything about them, you will be stuck. It can be surprising how little people know about their own situation.
2. Consider this phase of the test meeting someone for the first time and telling them about yourself. Try to be relaxed and keep the conversation going.
3. Don’t worry about lying – this is not a test of if you are a good person. If the assessor says “Tell me about your hobbies and interests” and you reply “I don’t have any” then you aren’t saying enough to allow the assessor to assess you. In situations like this, lie. Make up the wildest story you can imagine

Talk about your Favorite Website.
- Why is it your favorite website?
- How often do you use it?
- What would life be without it?
Internet has just changed the way the world operates. Gone are the days when you were tied down to your circumstances. These days, because of internet, you can be anything that you want to be and every one have in some way become connected to it. We all have our favorite websites, that we visit more often. My favorite is youtube.com. The reason I like it is I believe it is a fantastic way of sharing things. People can upload their work, they can see what people are doing without even knowing them personally. I myself have used it for watching motivational videos, learning new stuff and sharing many a times.
I started using youtube 2 years ago and it has been a great experience. I use it almost everyday. I am a blogger, so the only way I can find out stuff is through either youtube or newspapers. So, I use it for my work and also for leisure some times. I can stay on youtube to watch trailers and songs and speeches.
I think necessity is the mother of invention. I have been using it since the time I started blogging. Without it, I think life will be difficult and more importantly, I guess it will be quite limited. But I hope something similar or may be even better than it pops up.
