Part 1

Эта часть будет состоять из 12 вопросов на 3 темы. Длительность первой части – до 5 минут.

Отвечать необходимо кратко, но емко. Если вы будете затягивать ответ, экзамнатор вас перебьет и задаст следующий вопрос. Это может вас сбить и разволновать. На занятиях со студентом я обучаю техникам, которые помогают дать хороший раскрытый ответ, продемонстрировав при этом хорошее знание английского.
