Vocabulary practice for the Cambridge PET exam
Part 2 of the PET Speaking exam lasts about 2-3 minutes. The examiner will describe a situation to you and your partner and give you both some visuals. You will have to share your opinions with your partner about the task and try to make a decision. Try a Part 2 practice test below.
During the discussion in the exam you will need to show you can
offer an opinion (I think ...), ask your partner for his/her opinion
(Do you think ... Do you agree that ...) and make suggestions
(Why don't we ... What about ...).
Some of these words might be useful in this practice test:
flask, hot drink, walking boots, sore feet, umbrella, phone, get in trouble
first aid kit, plasters, compass, get lost.
The examiner is not interested in how good your ideas are. He or she will be listening to see how well you you can discuss things with your partner.
When you practise discussions try to show you are interested in what your partner has to say. Use expressions like this:
That's a good idea.
Do you think so?
