There are four basic skills: Level One Level Two Level Three Level Four Description/Identification Explanation Analysis Evaluation
To gain the highest grades, candidates must show evidence of the higher skills
Key types of questions Identify/state/describe.. Explain/outline… Discuss… Examine/assess/analyse.. Critically assess/to what extent…
Responses should: make a point make a point and develop it present two sides of the debate make a point and develop fully with some question of it explain both sides and evaluate
How to answer questions Example question: What determines the price of a product? Example answer: ● The price of a product is influenced by the costs. 1 ● This is because firms have to charge a price which is greater than costs to make a profit. 2 ● However in the short run a firm may sell a product at a loss. This may be to gain market share or because the product is still at the introduction phase and has high research and launch costs. 3 ● Overall it depends on whether we are considering a short or long term pricing policy. Firms may be willing to make a loss in the short run. It will also depend on the objectives of the firm. Some public sector organisations, e.g. may simply try to cover costs. Example Question: Should firms train their employees? Answer: By training their employees firms may be able to increase their profits BECAUSE trained staff are likely to be more productive and make les mistakes. Employees might also be more motivated BECAUSE they might be able to undertake more interesting work and BECAUSE managers are showing that they value their staff (which can satisfy their esteem needs). HOWEVER training costs money and is not always successful. It can also lead to a loss of production while staff are being trained. OVERALL, management will have to weigh up the potential benefits against the costs. If, for example, the firm has the necessary resources, the training is relatively cheap and is likely to lead to significant increases in productivity and profitability the firm likely to invest in it. If, ON THE OTHER HAND, the firm lacks the necessary finance and staff already have the skills required then training is LESS LIKELY. 第二课时 第一讲 Ⅰ Introduction to BV Speaking format conversation presentation discussion criteria pronunciation vocabulary & grammar discourse management interactive communication examiner interlocutor assessor Cambridge examiner Ⅱ Presentation Example
PART 2: Mini-presentation A: WHAT IS IMPORTANT WHEN…? Selecting applicants for a job Working experience Personal qualities Sample 1 I choose topic A-what is important when selecting applicants for a job. As to this topic, as far as I am concerned, there are 3 things to consider. First, I think working experience is very important when selecting applicants. Applicants who have already had the work experience in the relevant fields will learn the new job easier and quicker. And it will also save the company a lot of training fees if the applicant has related experience. Second, we must consider the personal qualities of the applicants, such as personality and health. Companies tend to employ people whose character fits a special job. For example, consulting company tends to employ applicant who is analytical and knowledgeable, but advertising agents like their employees to be energetic and creative. Third, I believe language is of great importance when selecting applicants. Nowadays, we do business with people from all over the world. Always we buy goods from Africa, and sell our electronic product to Europe; a foreign language especially English is needed if the company wants to expand to the world. Applicants who can speak one or more foreign languages will have a better chance to get the job. Sample 2 As we all know, the criteria used by HR professionals in screening and selecting applicants normally include such factors as working experience, personal qualities and communicative skills. Firstly, we pay a lot of attention to working experience of the applicant. A person with a solid record of related experience is more likely to fit in with a new company. Therefore he or she can be trusted to fulfill the tasks and solve the problems in a more professional and competent way. In addition to this, we also look at the personal qualities of the applicant. Does he or she has integrity, perseverance or ‘can do’ spirit? Surely any organization can benefit from the reliability, devotion and enthusiam of its employees. Finally, good communicative skills such as interpersonal skills and team spirit are also becoming an important precondition in selecting qualified employees. B: WHAT IS IMPORTANT WHEN…? Preparing for a job interview Studying the job advertisement Finding out about the company
Before you go for an interview, you must make preparations so as to face the interviewer with more confidence. They include studying the job advertisement, finding out about the company, preparing yourself psychologically, etc. Firstly, you should study the job advertisement carefully so that you can match your knowledge, skills and abilities with the specifications required for the post. You must assure the interviewer that you have all the qualifications required, so you are the right sort of person they are looking for. Secondly, you should know more about the company, such as its profile, structure, existing problems, requirements, campaigns and future plans. As a Chinese saying goes: “know the opponent and know yourself, and you can fight a hundred battles without defeat.” Finally, you should also prepare yourself psychologically and this will help you combat stress. Rehearsing the
interview with your friends, for example, is a good relaxation exercise that can install confidence in you. Ⅲ Presentation Discourse Management
  1. Opening Sentence Well, I’d like to make a short/brief/mini/one-minute presentation on the topic…
  2. Body (一般讲 2-3 个要点,根据语速和知识点调整) 个要点, 据语速和知识点调整) First,… Second…. Third,…
  3. Closing Sentence Anyway, that’s why I think so. Thank you very much. Thank you for taking your time. Thank you for listening. 第三课时 第二讲 Ⅰ Conversation PART 1: Exchange personal information This part aims to prepare the candidate for phase 1 of the speaking test, which takes the form of an interview, with each candidate talking in turn to the examiner.
