This is Susan brother from speak languages and travel the world I'm your English teacher here to help you with your fluency and today I'd like to talk to you about how to prepare for the Trinity graded exams in spoken English this is something which is very different from the other certifications because it only tests your spoken English and instead I'd like yes to give you the tips because it's very different from when you prepare for a written exams and so if you'd like to make sure that other people can also see these videos try and subscribe by pressing the button here because the more people subscribe the more the videos circulate and the more people can benefit from my tips so let me try and give you an explanation on what this exam is so you know what we're talking about so in London there is the Trinity College which promotes this exam it's called graded examinations in spoken English and it's very nice because many people take exams and certifications and they say well I've been speaking and learning English for so so many years but then you're your employer your future employer may not really understand how much you know and so with this examination which is divided into twelve grades if I'm not mistaken you can actually demonstrate your level now the exams vary between the they're grouped into about three grades for each level so elementary intermediate and so on but they vary a little so in the in what you have to do in the requisites but looking at the intermediate level the exam is between ten and fifteen minutes long and there's usually a part where you have to demonstrate your grammatical knowledge every level they want to know specific grammar grammatical points and you have to do some conversation on two of six topics so you have to prepare well yes they're called conversation subjects to be exact you have to prepare six conversation subject but the examiner will only talk to you about two of them and then you've got about five minutes to talk about a topic which you enjoy which you're passionate about now it sounds really easy and the exam isn't difficult if you prepare well for it whatever level you are preparing for but I specialized in this because years ago I was helping a girl who had personal difficulties so she needed extra special coaching and so I devised the methods to make sure that she would be able to the passed her exams well in fact she got excellent results and was commended by the authorities in London because she was so good so I wanted to share some of these tactics because those students who came to me and asked me for help and then thought I was overdoing it with these methods in the end they didn't quite obtain the same results that they were aiming for so I do think it would be important for me to share them so let me show you so one of the first things that you need to do is to prepare both your topic and the conversation subjects incorporating the grammatical structures that they want you to demonstrate because you have to prove that you know how to use them so for example one of the subjects is pollution and recycling I think it's in grade 7 if I'm not mistaken or it used to be at least one of the subject topics they may have changed recently you always have to check the website for the latest changes in any case we prepared a small explanation and if you see all the highlighted things those are the expressions or grammatical structures that you had to in those days it demonstrate that you knew how to do so for example the yellow is the passive is made of or be put be transformed the turquoise is the sentences using wheat shirts are the relatives that let's say which is made of which takes out where I put and so on and you have to show that you can explain cause or so due to or because you can have two you can demonstrate uncertainty by saying I'm not sure and they also wanted you to demonstrate for example may might and also the conditional so if I didn't have a garden I could put and so on so you need to discuss the subject conversation subject and if possible preparing it where you learn to use the the grammatical structures that they want you to demonstrate you know this and doesn't mean that you write it up as I have here and learn it off by heart that is absolutely inadmissible because you won't pass but if you start writing things up in this way both your topic whatever you choose to talk about or the subject conversation subjects you get used to using those grammatical structures and those expressions in reality then you have to speak freely you're not allowed to memorize you'll be penalized but you get used to it and so you can insert these in your spontaneous conversation and so it's really really important to practice by first preparing it a little bit and then practice speaking using it it's very good to also speaking a mirror for example now this is the preparatory phrase now of course particularly this girl she needed a lot of extra coaching so I thought how can we do this that she doesn't lose track of what she's talking about and so I devised a system where for each subject and also so conversation subject and also subsequently for her topic we prepare the series of pictures that would be a kind of prompt for her to then know what she had to say so I remember that's here she used to say something like I live in a small
