    Grade Test for English

    majors---Band Eight Oral Test

    The oral test for the fourth year English majors is designed to assess your oral interpretation skills and your ability to speak English. It consists of three tasks, task one interpreting from English into Chinese; task two

    interpreting from Chinese into English; task three making a comment on a given topic. For both task one and task two, youll first listen to a speech that lasts about two or three minutes. This first speech provides a context for the interfering that you’ll do when you

    hear the speech the second time. The parrot of the speech that you are required to interpret is usually shorter than the one you heard the first time. After you listen to the speech the first time, you should get ready for

interpreting. The speech for

    interpreting is divided into four or more segments, and each segment consists of one or two sentences. Between every two segments, there is a pause signaled by the sound of a beep. Once youve

    heard the beep, please start interpreting. When you hear the next beep, you

    should stop interpreting and get ready to listen to the next segment. For task three, each of you gets a sheet of paper that contains a topic and directions. The topic youre asked to comment on is

    about social, national or international issue. Your preparation time is four minutes. Your comment is limited to three minutes. Now the oral test begins.
