Cambridge KEY (KET) Speaking Part 2 Cards

In the second part of the KET speaking exam the examiner gives the students a card with some information or some ideas for questions. Basically the students ask and answer simple questions about daily life for 3 to 4 minutes. Usually five questions and their answers. I have made 6 cards for my students to work with. Some different material to work with is always good even if they do laugh at my drawings. Download them here if you like, KETCards .  For part 1, check out this video  I made on YouTube. Please share, etc if you find them useful in your own class. Enjoy.

Cambridge KEY (KET) Speaking Game

I have started preparing some of my students for the Cambridge Exams this year. One of the exams we have to prepare for is the KEY English Test. A KEY or KET qualification shows your ability to communicate in simple situations. I made this game for my students to practice the first part of the speaking exam. The first part of the exam is an interview where the examiner asks you some personal questions about yourself for 5 to 6 minutes. This game has 28 typical questions that may be asked during the speaking exam. To play is easy. Put your students into small groups, 3 or 4, give them a dice and ask them to make some counters. I give them a small piece of paper and on it they write the first letter of their name, they colour it, draw a shape,etc. Answer the question they land on or ask someone else the question. First to the Finish wins. My students usually finish the game in 15 minutes, so its a good warmer to start or even to finish a class. W
