KEY WORDSB2 First (FCE), speaking tips activities

AGE GROUPSteens, young adults, adults



How can you best prepare your students for B2 First (FCE) Speaking? As a former B2 First Speaking examiner and long-term teacher of B2 First preparation courses, I have, over time, identified some tips and techniques to help students refine and improve their performance in Speaking Parts 2 and 3. The aim of this session is to demonstrate some ways you can better prep candidates for the individual long turn and the interactive conversation.
