Worst thing: silence

with one comment

This is a very important tip on the speaking part:

The worst thing in the exam is silence. If you really have no opinion, then say it: ‘I really have no opinion on this matter’.

And if you are really stuck and need some time to pull yourself together, you could start off by asking your partner: “What do you think?”…s/he may hate you for doing this, but it’s all about survival, isn’t it?
