Đáp án gợi ý:
Examiner: Hello. My name is Susan Davie. Can you tell me your full name, please?
Student: Anna Delgado
Examiner: Thanks. Can I please see your identification?... Thanks, that’s great. I’m going to ask you some questions about yourself now. Tell me about your favourite film or television programme.
Student: A television programme I particularly like is a comedy about people who work in an office. It looks quite ordinary on the surface, but the characters are very funny. If you’ve ever worked in an office, you would understand the humour.
Examiner: How do you think television has changed since you were a child?
Student: There are a lot more television channels, so, supposedly, there is a lot more choice. But in fact many of the programmes today are very similar. In the past there were fewer programmes but more variety.
Examiner: Are there any types of programmes that you don’t like to watch?
Student: Absolutely. I really don’t like soap operas. I find the story lines completely unrealistic and I can never keep track of all the different characters and how they're related.
Examiner: I’d like to ask you a few questions about transport. How do normally travel to your work or place of study?
Student: I usually walk to work as my workplace is only two kilometres from my home. It takes me approximately 25 minutes to get there. However, if the weather is bad, I get a lift from my brother or my sister-in law.
Examiner: How do people in your country normally travel?
Student: More and more people own a car, so, inevitably, most people travel by car. Unfortunately, it’s not the healthiest or most environmentally friendly mode of travel, but it is convenient.
Examiner: How easy is it to get around in your country?
Student: It’s relatively easy to get around, especially by car. The road network is extensive and generally in a good state of repair. The exception is in the mountainous areas in the west, where the roads are comparatively rough and narrow.
Examiner: We’re now going to talk about places of interest in your country. What do you think is the most interesting building or monument in your country?
Student: Undoubtedly, the national museum. It was once a palace but it now houses the national art collection. It was built approximately 400 years ago and each room has a particular theme. My favourite room is designed around the theme of music and holds the museum’s collection of musical instruments.
Examiner: Do you prefer historic building styles to modern architecture?
Student: Not necessarily. I think there are a lot of interesting buildings being built these days. I like the way glass and steel can be used to create light airy spaces.
Examiner: To what extent do people in your country value traditional architecture?
Student: Generally speaking, people still prefer traditional architecture and the government has promoted the conservation of historic buildings. Not surprisingly, it’s very difficult to get permission to alter a traditional structure or construct a modern building in an old area.
