    Hello all,

    Simple one this: how many tasks are in the speaking and listening component for level 2 functional skills? And does anyone have all the necessary paperwork digitally and/or access via a link? I will send you an e-card in return!

    Thanks in advance for your time and festive good-will.

  3. There are 2 components -

    1 is a presentation (solo) that should last between 5 - 10 minutes on a familiar (to the student) topic. Examples I have used have been 'favourite holiday', 'a hobby of mine', 'favourite team/film etc'

    1 is a group discussion (3 - 5 people) that should be on an unfamiliar (to the student) topic. Topics such as 'is it acceptable for sports people to earn as much money as they do?' or 'do you support capital punishment?' are good as the students have to research information to help them make interesting points.
