Just a quick question.... hubby has been practicing and has printed off the question papers and there's a page with the conversations from the listening test... now he's wondering that if you can print it off woth the practice will they provide that sheet in the exam? As surely if he is good at reading he can find the answers and draw a line under then then transfer them onto the answer sheet in the last 10 mins x help please x. X he's getting worried x never sen him so stressed x

I didn't get you but they give him a white paper and a pencil. Tell him not to worry, I worried so much on day of the exam even though I'm an English teacher but it's just the fact that people make it seem to be so hard. Tell him it's so easy, he will even find himself talking better than some workers there ( apart from the examiners of course )

By the way something that gives a good impression at first, he will be asked where are you from and he should give a very small definition about the city he lives in. I remember I was asked this question and I said from Sfax which is an industrial city and the capital of the south and the examiner liked the answer. The first impression can never be changed, and remind him to keep eye contact, if you want some video links I can provide you with.

You're welcome robynnem, he has to mention Only a small sentence about his city and he doesn't have to make it so long because he might be asked later to describe it. and here are the links :
In the second video involves a native speaker conversation and believe me it helps a loooot :
And the girl in the third video helps a lot:

Yes he's been using these that's why I asked because the test papers provide him with a sheet woth the conversations on that they listen to... now if they have that in the test..m he can be reading that whole listening and marking the answers for him to add to the answer paper in the 10 mins they get at the end. He finds them easy... just the last few he misses some answers x he's worried about that x

hes probably just panicking, i'm sure he will be fine, i've been told by people who have taken the test that they cant believe how easy it was and that they were worrying for nothing, but i guess everyone is different. Good luck with it all x
