How many parts are there to the speaking exam?  Well there are three parts.

Part 1, the examiner will ask you questions about topics such as family, jobs, holidays free time.  Part 1 lasts 4-5 minutes.

Part 2, you will be given a task card about a particular topic with prompts.  You are given one minute t think about the topic and make notes on a piece of paper.  Then you speak to the examiner for 2 – 3 minutes.

Part 3, you will have a discussion with the examiner linked to the topic in part 2.  It’s a longer discussion, this part will last 4 – 5 minutes.
