PET Speaking Part 2/3

  Claudia and Carmen practising Part 2 of PET Speaking

Teachers notes

Vocabulary
Both students demonstrated a good range of vocabulary that was appropriate to the task.

Grammar/structure
Both students made a couple of grammatical mistakes. Claudia corrected herself. Carmen used the incorrect form of seasick, she used the adjective and not the have+noun structure. Have seasickness. She also used the incorrect form of Have, she said ‘…maybe one of us have…’. The correct form is ‘has’.

Pronunciation. Conversational skills. Understanding.
Pronunciation was generally good for the level. Both understanding and conversational skills were good. Both students understood each other and responded appropriately. They asked for clarification if needed.

Overall task
Although finishing a little early they completed the task. They spoke about each option and shared their opinions. They made a choice and reached an agreement.

General
As an observer and native speaker I understood the students and followed their conversation easily. In my opinion this demonstrates an ability to communicate well, at the level.

Teachers notes

Vocabulary
The student demonstrated a reasonable range of vocabulary that was appropriate to the task. More specific language could have been used, for example festival, outdoor concert, performers, audience.

Grammar/structure
There were no significant errors. Verb tense was correct for talking about the picture (present continuous) and modals of possibility/probability were used appropriately.

Pronunciation
Pronunciation was reasonable for the level, but certain words could have been enunciated better.

Overall task
The task was completed within the time, and satisfied the Who, Where, What, Why strategy.

General
As an observer and native speaker I understood the student and what she was trying to say.
