FCE Speaking Test: Key
Duration: Approximately 14 minutes.
Participants: Candidates interviewed in
pairs. (In threes for the final session at a
centre with an odd number of candidates).
Two examiners are present. One examiner
(the interlocutor) carries out the
interviewer whilst the second (the
assessor) focuses on the candidate's
Format: There are four parts to the test.

FCE Speaking Test: Part 1 (Interview)
Tests ability to: use language for social purposes, e.g. making
introductions, answering questions about yourself.
Part 1 of the FCE Speaking test lasts about 3 minutes. The examiner
will ask some 'getting-to-know-you' questions perhaps to find out
where you come from, your interests, your family or your studies
Example Questions

Where are you from?
Tell me something about your family.
What did you enjoy most when you were at primary school?
Do you have any plans for a holiday this year?
Do you play any musical instruments?

Giving full answers to the examiner's questions will help get the
interview off to a good start.

1) Avoid giving short, uncommunicative replies.
Q: Tell me something about your family.
A: I live with my mum, dad and sister and brother. (Don't stop
there!) My sister's younger than me and still goes to school. My
brother works as a computer technician.
2) Avoid short, 'yes', 'no' answers to closed questions. (These are
questions beginning 'Have you ...', 'Do you ...', 'Is it ...' etc which can
be answered simply with a yes or no answer).
Q: Do you have any plans for a holiday this year?
A: Yes. (Don't stop there!) If I get the chance I'd like to visit my
friend in Germany. We haven't seen each other for a while and I'm
really looking forward to seeing him and getting to know Germany.
Q: Do you play any musical instruments?
A: No. (Don't stop there!) We had music lessons when I was at
school but I was never very good.
3) Offer examples to help you explain a statement.
Q: Why are you preparing for the FCE exam?
A: No reason really. (Don't stop there!) I enjoy learning English and I
think it would be good to have a qualification to show my level.
FCE Speaking Test: Part 2 (Long Turn)
Tests ability to: speak at length coherently, use language to describe,
compare and contrast and comment upon a topic.
Part 2 of the FCE Speaking test lasts between 4 minutes (6 minutes for
groups of three). The examiner gives you two photographs and your
partner a different pair of photograp...
