PREPARING SPEAKING C1

Actualizado: ene 13

Certification is a big challenge for people who are not familiarized with exams, what the majority of the international applications mention, they measure skills, due to this, It is not necessary to study to face the challenge however studying, does not mean preparation itself.


This time we have prepared some possible exam interviewing questions which you should answer with a sense of doubtlessness.

Try to self evaluate your vocabulary. If you repeatedly mention a word it would be better to look for a synonym.

The Cambridge thesaurus dictionary might be an ideal tool for seeking some synonyms by level.

What kind of places are commonly crowded in your neighborhood?

Recently everything in my city! However, I would say especially the streets, since the increasing of business, they tend to become overcrowded with vehicles. Moreover, markets and shopping malls are quite hectic (stressful), as people in my country enjoy shopping.


Do you like to go to crowded places?

By no means, people would enjoy crowded places. I can´t stand the overwhelming feeling to be pushed and shoved. Furthermore, it’s even worse in the summer when people are sweating and have body odor.
