  2. Section D • Preparation time for Parts I and II: 10 minutes • Individual presentation (Part I): 2 minutes • Part II revisited: 2 minutes • Discussion: 10 minutes

  3. Preparation • First reading: 2 minutes • Second reading / writing: 4 minutes • Jotting notes for part II: 2 minutes • Rehearsing it mentally: 2 minutes

  4. Points to consider • Understanding the marking scheme • Preparing for Part II: discussion • Jotting clear notes • Considering a fun opening • Providing personal opinions (optional) • Using names and numbers • Deleting points

  5. A fun opening: Comic Books • Do you like reading comic books? • I just read an article on comic books. • I once read comic books in class when the teacher was absent from school. Of course I was wrong, but it only showed how popular comic books are among students.

  6. Sequence of points • Is the sequence important? • Which point can be deleted without losing the flow of the 2-minute presentation? • Where should personal opinion come in? • When should the presenter wrap up? • Wake-up call: That’s all for my presentation. Thank you.

  7. Paralinguistic needs • Behave well in the exam centre • Posture • Eye contact • Fillers • Facial expressions: raising eye brows, nodding, smiling, etc. • Listen to others’ points for future reference

  8. Preparation for Part II • The examiner will read the questions for you before the two-minute preparation time. • No writing during the two minutes. • To consider the points provided by others

  9. Discussion • Speak up: the examiners may be 7 feet away from you • Give one to two ideas each time (do not speak for too long) • Allow other candidates to provide input • Use simple English (using the same terms shown in passage is not necessary) • Be courteous

  10. Making references / Inviting others • Just now you mentioned about the price of comic books. Could you elaborate a bit there? • You had a good point there. Would you care to explain some more? • Your comic books passage may be of use to our project. Could you repeat one point there?

  11. Discussion • Help group members who are having difficulty explaining their points. • There is no need to vote. • There is no need to come to a conclusion. • Do not spend too much time on procedures. • Always remember: other candidates do not share your school environment.

  12. Wrap up • Note well when you have two more minutes to go • Wrap up when you have only one minute to go; summarize what has been discussed. • “I think that’s all we have time for. Did I miss anything?” • “Thank you for a useful discussion.”

  13. Leaving the centre • Look at the examiner who gives candidates instructions. • Nod to everyone in the room. • Leave your chair and room as quietly as possible. • Enjoy the rest of the AL exams!

  14. THANK YOU
