Guidelines for Examinees

 Graded Test for English Majors—Band 4

Oral Test

The oral test for the second-year English major is designed to assess your spoken English in different types of situations and on a wide variety of topics. It consists of three tasks, each involving a particular speech activity.

 

Task: Retelling a story

The passage will be approximately 300 words long. It may be a story, accounts of experiences or anecdotes. You have to start your retelling immediately after you have heard the passage twice.

 

Task: Talking on a given topic

A given topic is very often related to the general theme of the passage you have heard previously. For example, the passage may describe someone’s miserable life in his/her early childhood, and the topic you are required to talk about is one happy incident in your childhood. After you have heard the given topic spoken on the test tape twice, you have three minutes to prepare your talk. Your talk is limited to three minutes.

 

Task : Role-playing

The task involves two examinees. Each of you will get a sheet which contains a specific situation and a specified role you are expected to play. Although the situation is the same for the two examinees, your roles are different. For example, the given situation may be borrowing money. Student A wants to borrow 20 dollars from Student B. Student A must try all the best to persuade Student B must refuse A’s request with politeness. Your preparation time is three minutes. Your conversation is limited to four minutes.
