Role play: Shopping

Exam tips

  • In the role plays it is very important to say something for every point, even if you are not sure you are saying it completely correctly. It is also important to say each bit of each question, eg if it says packet of crisps you should try to say packet of crisps not just crisps.
  • If you get stuck try to think of other ways of expressing the same ideas in English.
  • Preparation and learning is key. You need to learn key phrases carefully off by heart so you have the phrases you need to hand.
  • Remember the importance of learning vocabulary - food and drink is a topic that always comes up.
