Chapter 7, beginning on page 170.



Chapter 6
 The Interview
I Description of the Interview
The interview takes between 11 and 15 minutes. Every interview has five sections, which are the same for every student.
The aim is to assess your ability to talk in everyday situations. As some sections are intended to be harder than others, the time each section lasts may vary according to the proficiency of different students. The interview tends to become more difficult from section one to section four, but section five is generally easier.
The interview is recorded. This is not to assess you, but to standardise marking. Try to forget the recorder is there by concentrating on the interviewer.
Section One

The interviewer will introduce him/herself and may begin the interview by askingyou some questions about the information you gave on a form you filled in before the reading and writing test. This form has details of your educational and work background as well as information about your interests and plans. It will help you in this section if you filled out the form carefully. The more information you give about your interests and plans the better.
This section tests your ability to use social greetings, provide information about yourself and to state facts. It is not likely to seem very difficult. The interviewer's main aim at this stage is to help you relax.
Section Two
You will be asked to talk about one or more topics. The topic, or topics, will generally be some aspect of your own country, of its life, culture and customs, or some aspect of your own experiences. This section tests your ability to talk about a familiar general or personal topic. It tests how well you can give general information, describe directions, provide a description, make a comparison, describe sequences of events or describe how something works.
It is not a good strategy to memorise a 'talk' on a likely subject. Firstly the interviewer will change your topic if it seems you have learnt something by heart. Secondly interviewers want you to be able to have a conversation on the topic, not to deliver a lecture. The interviewer may prompt you with questions or change the direction of the conversation However, you are still expected to take, the initiative in this section. This means that you should develop the topic as far as you can, offer your own ideas and give explanations if necessary. Do not simply answer "Yes1 or 'No' to the interviewer's questions.
