Speaking Tip Number 4: Part1

In recent practice speaking tests  on www.passietsonline.com I have been coming across a problem which occurred again and again through my IELTS examining career. Simply put, candidates drop marks by answering automatically and without sufficient care about the second question in the introductory questions section. Here are two examples: See if  you can spot which one drops marks..

Example 1:

Examiner: Where are you from?

Candidate: I am from England!

Example 2:

Examiner: Where are you from?

Candidate: I am from London, the capital of England.

I will let  you know in my next blog posting which one loses marks…and why.
