Tips for answering Questions
Listen carefully Don’t jump in. Clarify if you are unsure what the question is.
Keep it simple Avoid complicated explanations or grammar if you are not sure about them.
Think first! 'That's a good question.' 'Well, let me think...' 'It's funny you should ask...' 'Well, to make a long story short...' 'Well, to be honest...' 'It's difficult to say...'
Ask for explanations If you don't understand what you are meant to do, ask the examiner to explain.
Use full sentences Avoid single word answers or lists.
Finish the task Make sure that you leave some time for explaining your own views.
Keep speaking ‘Please give me a moment while I think about the answer.’ ‘Let me see... what do these photographs show?’
