Speaking Test Practice

Speaking test practice is all about building building your confidence before your test.

Often, before your test, you’ll find that you dwell on specific things. That can create hurdles and barriers in your mind, and these can prevent you from delivering your best English in the test. For example, some students think that not knowing a word in the question will make them freeze and fail their test.

In these practice sessions, we’ll tackle those barriers and put them in perspective so that they don’t stop you from doing your very best in the test.

Typically, these practice sessions only include a minimum amount of review.

Some students book these practice sessions right before they go into their test so that everything is fresh in their minds when they start speaking to the examiner.

Cost of Speaking test practice

One Practice session costs $20/hour.
