Dear all, It is my first year with a Year 11 group. I have done some mocks in my previous school as a FLA though and I´m still struggling a bit with how to conduct the speaking exam. I asked my students to pick a topic for their general conversation and aspects they feel comfortable with (we will have a mock in November) and the vast majority of them chose Theme 2 since they find it complicated and most of them chose the same aspects as well (e.g. opinion on charity work, what they did in town last week etc). My questions are: 1)Can we conduct the actual exams in May with most of our students choosing the same theme? 2)If so, can they discuss similar aspects? I have asked three people and I got three different answers! It is my first year as a full-time teacher and this is stressing me out a bit! Thank you very much for all your support!
