SLP 2222 – oral exam format

Level 2 speaking tasks

Since on level 2 you should know English much better than on level 1, all the instructions and supporting materials are in English. The formula of the English oral exam on level 2 intends to test the examinee during an interaction with the examiner. That is why the whole exam consists of one conversation on a subject chosen at random.

Speaking topics – samples

When you enter the examination room you are asked to choose one out of several samples of speaking topics. You must tell the examination board the number of your sheet of paper to let them know what task you have. The whole exam set consists of your (examinee’s) sheet and corresponding examiner’s sheet with his/her role to play in that particular scenario. The example of the exam set is shown below:

(L2/S/001)

You need some information.
The examiner is a clerk.

The examiner speaks first, “Hello! How can I help you?”
