How to get prepared in just 60 seconds?
First of all, don’t panic. Try to focus on the topic and find a suitable subject that you are entirely familiar with. For example, in the case of the above task, you might choose to talk about your dream car. Remember that all of your talk during this part of the speaking test must be about this specific item since you will get no marks for talking about something else.
Using the points presented in the task card, you can build a structure for your speech. For example, for the task card above, there are four bullet points that you definitely need to address. So the second step in your prep could be finding and writing down key ideas for each one of these bullet points.
For example, about the first bullet point, “what the product is” you could write down these ideas:
Luxury interior design, high power engine,
One of your friends has one
Moving forward to the second bullet point, “where you would buy the product” you could use these ideas:
The retailer at downtown
They have a variety of colours
They offer a discount
For the third bullet point, you could jot:
The price has increased since last month
The car is well worth it
And for the last point, these ideas could be useful:
Always dreamt of having it
It’s a safe and reliable car
Makes you feel special
Now that you know how to approach the bullet points and structure your speech, make sure you prepare some great adjectives for each topic and memorize some phrases that you can use to connect the bullet points. Also, make sure you talk about your opinions and feelings and think about some examples or stories to make your descriptions more interesting.
