speakingtest and for now you can relax this is the end and great thank you very much thank you well then let's see what
scoreyou get on each criterion, but before starting I would like to know what you think of your performance, how do you think? did you answer the questions um I think I answered two questions average average okay okay so I start with the first criterion which is your fluency and coherence in general I can say that you are able to answer the questions at some point like in Some questions was a little hard for you to answer or understand what I'm asking you to talk about, but you did a great job.
Thank you so much. First I would like to start with your fluency and coherence, I would say. that in parts one, two and three you were struggling to give me an answer and sometimes you had some hesitations and pauses as if you were stopping to think what word or what grammatical structure you wanted to use, so it wasn't really related to the context, but which was related to language so that's something maybe you should work on, because of your hesitancy because of your self-correction and self-repetition, well maybe I can just mark you up so that's something you should work on and also , you were really trying to use something. connectives like, for example, I could hear it, but because and and also some discourse markers or even some words like, I think, actually, so these are very good words to use, if you can use these simple connectives, you can get a 5 in your fluency, but if you can use a wider range of them, for example too or, in addition, add some more connectives to that, then you can get a 6 in your fluency and coherence.
Now let's talk about your vocabulary, the use of vocabulary or your lexical resource. I can tell that since I was talking about getting up early you tried to use some words related to this topic, but the thing is that you didn't use a very wide range of words related to the topic and you made some mistakes when using them. words and my recommendation for you shahram is to paraphrase more like when I ask you a question, don't copy exactly the same words that I am using, try to use some synonyms, for example, if I say, what time do people usually go to sleep? ? your country you can say uh, for example, people in my country sleep at ten o'clock instead of going to bed or they go to sleep, they go to bed, they sleep well, these are the paraphrased form of the words , these are the synonyms, so try to use better to better paraphrase the questions that can really help you improve your
Now let's talk about your grammatical range and accuracy. As I listened to you in parts one, two and three, you were able to use the simplest structures like short sentences using and or even bought or because to link your sentences, but usually when you tried to make more complex structures you had difficulty and made mistakes with them, so you're fine with simple structures, but uh, I could. I don't really hear conditional sentences or subordinate clauses and maybe you can work on that, then I would say you get another four in your grammar. My suggestion to you is to work a little on making some longer and more complex sentences and reduce your errors.
It is much better to speak without errors. You know some candidates try to use very fancy words and structures to show what they know, but that's totally wrong, like you're okay. You were trying to be natural and use simple words and whatever you were using. You were sure that was a very good thing, but maybe you could try to improve your score by working more on complex structures. It's good, very good. I could see from your pronunciation that I could totally understand what you were saying. The accent didn't really have a very negative impact on your English pronunciation, but you did have some lapses.
I can tell you had some lapses and some hesitations, like for example you said clients, that's actually a client to give you an example and maybe you could link some. sounds, for example, I don't know if you want to say half an hour, you can say half an hour, link some sounds and give better intonation to your sentences, it was a bit monotonous, right, you can raise and lower your voice. when you talk to me, that's why I can say um sometimes I had a hard time understanding what you're going to say and you had some lapses so I can give you another four on your pronunciation, I would say what you can work on is, first of all, work on your grammar. and then reduce your doubts, your self-correction and your self-repetition.
You were using, you were saying um um all the time, maybe instead you can use some fillers, for example, well, to talk. about that I can say or to be honest I can also add that use some fillers to buy some time, on the other hand try to cover your two minutes by talking about all the points of the cue card like you talked about the first one. one when it happened the time you got up early why you got up who you were with but how you felt about getting up early you didn't really cover that you didn't explain much about it so make sure you cover all the points and then move on to other things related to the topic or deviate from the topic.
You have time, you can work on your English and techniques and next time you come back you will definitely get a better score. Any questions, no thanks. OK, thanks a lot
