F.3 Final examination Speaking Group Interaction
Format A group interaction with ● 4 min preparation ● 4 min examination ● 4 students in a group You have to discuss with your classmates in order to complete a task based on one or more than one stories in The Happy Prince and Other Stories.
Examination starts on the 28/5/2007 (Oral and Enhancement English lessons) Preparation: Read the four stories in The Happy Prince and Other Stories and Read the TSA book PP on discussion skills
e.g. i)What gift is the best for the Selfish Giant? ii)Which character would you like to have as your classmate?
You are expected to show your discussion skills such as: 1) Introduction: ‘Today we’re going to talk about The Happy Prince. What do you think?’ Is it a good introduction? 2) Agreement: You can say 'OK', 'Alright', 'That's right' instead of 'I agree with you' all the time. 3) Disagreement: Say something good first, then what needs to be improved 'It's a good idea to have the swallow as our classmate, but he is a bird!'
4) Turn-taking: Sustain the discussion by helping the quiet student speak and interrupting the talkative one. 5) Conclusion: Make sure you listen to all the points made and are able to summarise them. However, it is not a must to reach a conclusion.
