Preparing for Oral Exam
The Oral Exam for K101 will be conducted in a format in which you and me are engaged in free spontaneous conversation.

You will be scored on five criteria:

(i) Comprehension: has to do with how well you understand what's going on in the conversation.

(ii) Fluency: how smoothly you produce your utterance, not the speed of it.

(iii) Accuracy: how you command your grammar, vocabulary and expressions accurately.

(iv) Spontaneity: you will score better if you spontaneously initiate conversation rather than passively responding to the questions given to you.

(v) Uses of grammar: how well you utilize the grammar and expressions you have learned in this class, and how creatively use them.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT BE PASSIVE. DO NOTJUST RESPOND TO THE INTERVIEWER'S QUESTIONS, BUT YOU NEED TO INITIATE CONVERSATION AS MUCH AS YOU CAN.

Every question is intended for you to use a pattern or expression covered in the lessons.
