Self-study Speaking Practice with Get Speaking

Ready-to-go speaking exercises for English exam presentations and discussions

Are you preparing for an English Speaking exam? Are you looking for new topics to speak about, vocabulary for each topic AND strategies to help you perform at your best?

We all know that the best way to prepare for an English Speaking exam is to practise as often as possible ... 'practice makes perfect' is particularly true for students in this situation!

The question is where do you find suitable practice materials?

It's important that you're familiar with the kind of short presentations (long turns) and discussion topics that often appear in English Speaking exams, but these can be hard to come by. And what about the key vocabulary to support these topics and the Speaking skills you'll need to focus on?

We realise how difficult it can be to find materials like this which is why we've developed our hugely popular 'Get Speaking' Task Sheets.
