Grammar Exercise #5
English Speaking Tip
Spend time before the test speaking and listening or reading in English rather than in your own language so you are ‘thinking in English’ when you go into the examination room. Don’t worry if you make a grammatical mistake – you are being assessed on various things, not just your grammar.
Describe a place that you would like to visit.
You should say:
- where the place is?
- why would you like to visit that place?
- what you would do there?
Here is part of a sample answer to the task. Fill in the gaps with the correct form of the verbs in brackets to make true sentences.
I think the place I would most like (visit) is England. I (learn) English for about seven years now and I still (be) to an English-speaking country. I think if I (go) somewhere like England, I'd be able to learn about the culture of another country. I (go) to Europe once with my family, but that was to Italy. I really enjoyed (see) all the tourist attractions but it's difficult when you don't speak the local language. My father used (live) in England when he was a student and he says that if he (do) that, then wouldn't have learned to speak English with a good accent. One of my ambitions is (study) there like he did, which I am planning to do if I (pass) all my exams.
