1 task
Speaking 7-9 minutes Part 1
The examiner asks the candidate what his/her name and surname is and how old he/she is. The examiner shows the candidate the candidate’s copy of the Find the Differences picture. The candidate is initially shown the examiner’s copy as well, but then encouraged to look at the candidate’s copy only. The examiner then makes a series of statements about the examiner’s picture and the candidate has to respond by making statements showing how the candidate’s picture is different, e.g. (examiner) ‘In my picture, the man is pointing at a cloud on the map.’ (candidate) ‘In my picture, he’s pointing at the sun.’ 
4 parts
Part 2
The examiner shows the candidate the candidate’s copy of the Information Exchange. The candidate is initially shown the examiner’s copy as well, but then is encouraged to look at the candidate’s copy only. The examiner first asks the candidate questions related to the information the candidate has, e.g. ‘What’s the name of Robert’s favourite restaurant?’ and the candidate answers. The candidate then asks the examiner questions, e.g. ‘What’s the name of Sarah’s favourite restaurant?’ and the examiner answers.
Part 3
The examiner tells the candidate the name of the story and describes the first picture, e.g. ‘These pictures tell a story. It’s called “The Brave Teacher”. Just look at the pictures first. (pause) Nick and Anna are looking out of the classroom window. The teacher isn’t happy because they’re not doing their work.’ The examiner then asks the candidate to continue telling the story. The title of the story and the name of the main character(s) is shown with the pictures in the candidate booklet.
Part 4
The examiner asks questions about a topic, e.g. ‘Now let’s talk about some different months of the year. What’s the best month at school?’
