I have got a very simple yet powerful OET speaking practice that you can do on a day to day basis. If you’ve got your examination coming up and you’re not getting a lot of practice right now for speaking. Then this is a good method that you can use. When you’re practicing your role plays, you have to do two role plays as part of the OET speaking examination. And before that you do a quick warm-up with the interlocutor. They will first ask you a few questions just about your professional background etc.
But, the tool that I really want to go into today is what we use for our classes and it’s called www.zoom.us. This tool is much better than Skype, where it basically allows you to download a free application. You can download the software ideally to your laptop or PC but you can also download it to your phone as well.
What you need to do is you need to get a speaking partner, maybe your friend or a colleague. Your colleague will play the role of the interlocutor or patient. And you will play the role of the nurse or the doctor whichever one you are and you will connect on zoom. Then you can go through the role play scenarios. There are lots of role play examples and materials on the OET official websites. We also have them available for our Swoosh paid students here: www.swooshenglish.com/oet-mock-exams. You can go there and get some example role plays.
Hopefully, this was helpful for you today and if you have any questions, make sure you put them in the message box below!
