Upper intermediate: B2


I'm going to do my itlets spoken test the day after tomorrow and I just began to prepare it yesterday. I plan to study all the speaking skills conversations on this website in two days, though the vedios can't played in my area I think the materials can help me a lot.
What I learned from this conversation are:
have always loved doing something
easy job vs challenge, work with
first of all, secondly, finally
do sport, keep physical fit, mental well-being,self-esteem
important life lessons, team work, discipline,fairness (treat people right)
let me think. It's an interesting question. such setences can give me some time to think.
on one hand, on the other hand (by the way there's a mistake in the task 1 about these phrases, I think)
make a big impression on me, in my blood
enjoy competitive element, want to be the best, not as confident, reward for trying their best. not all about winning

at last, for instance, actually can be used in the end of a setence in oral English.

Hello BING70

Good luck on your test! I also wanted to recommend TakeIELTS, where you can find lots of useful tips to help you prepare.

Yes, Sure I should do an interview in my nearest future in English.
Because I using British council for my English learning skills
I understood, how can I attend an interview

I am sure that I will do an interview in English in the near future because of IELTS exam. As we know, in part 1 of speaking we need to answer for some questions about ourselves. And I can say this video very helpful for preparing speaking skills.

It is very important to be confident, and have a self esteem. And be truly yourself, and say what you really think from the bottom of your hart. And not trying to be someone else, or pretend that you are someone else.

yes, I think I might be having an English interview soon. The video that was presented gave me ideas on how to answer questions. Some of the words or phrases that was used can also be helpful in my job interview.

I will like to learn the intermediate level through to the final on your online learning platform.
