Speaking tests

This class will discuss pros and cons, consider strong statements, and look at the gray area that exists between two extreme points of view.

In this lesson we'll discuss nature and traditions, and decide what role they should play in logical decision making.

In this lesson, let's discuss odds and probability, and how certain things effect odds, while others don't.

Using sound logic is vital for advanced communication. It will also help you answer questions clearly in meetings, presentations and conversation, as well as get better scores on logical aspects of English speaking tests. This lesson is about how to use data.

Check your score sheet and you will find two of your delivery scores in G.B.C. relate directly to confidence and enthusiasm (specifically nervousness and animation/enthusiasm).

Nearly 15% of your G.B.C. score is for fluency. Fluency is something that will develop over time, but there are some ways you can fake it! This lesson will show you how.

When you are speaking English, naturally you need to think and pause. In the last lesson, we talked about non-word sounds. G.B.C. penalizes your use of non-word sounds. So when you need to think, or you are having trouble expressing yourself, what should you do? Fill the pauses naturally.

This is one of the easiest ways to increase your GBC score. You get penalised for using "non-word sounds". This means saying things like "um" and "ah". All you have to do is stop saying "um" and "ah", but it can be more difficult than you realise.

Gestures and body language are an important component of non-verbal communication. We're going to do a quick lesson on gestures, so that you can be more engaging when you speak. You'll need video for this one!

A lot of the questions you will get in the GBC test are predictable. This lesson will give you ideas about how to research your answers, so you can be better prepared.
