Examen Oral – Speaking Test

Your speaking exam will last for a maximum of one and a half minutes.  You can prepare a presentation of up to 45 seconds covering the topics shown below about your family and school, I will then ask you questions about a Spanish school (using the prompts) for another 45 seconds. 

Remember it is quality not quantity that counts.  You need to show me that you know a variety of vocabulary and grammar.  To gain a level 4 you need to use verbs in the ‘yo’ (I) form and other forms such as ‘el’ (he) or ‘ella’ (she), you also need to give opinions (me gusta, me encanta, odio, detesto, etc..) and you need to link your sentences together with conjunctions (y, pero, porque, tambien, etc….).  If you want to gain a level 5, you need to use the future tense (voy a + infinitive).

Me Gusta(n) / No me gusta(n) – I like it/them / I don’t like it/them

If we are saying we like or dislike one thing we use:

me gusta / no me gusta

If we are saying we like or dislike more than one thing, we use:

me gustan / no me gustan

Some school subjects like ‘maths’ and ‘science’ are plural in Spanish (las matematicas / las ciencias), therefore we have to me gustan with those nouns.

Look at the table below and make sentences giving your opinion for each subject:
