FCE Speaking Part 1 B

Part 1 ( 2 minutes) 

The examiner will ask you questions about your life, focusing on areas such as daily life, leisure, work, future plans, holidays, likes and disl ikes. The examiner addresses each of the candidate in turn and does not invite you to talk to each other, though you may do so if you wish. This is a natural way to begin the exam and it allows you to settle and feel more confident.
