Considering how specific the purpose is, studying with an expert teacher really makes the difference.

Only a teacher who is trained to teach CILS students can help you improve your performance.

Let’s go through the Speaking Section!

As usual, the Speaking Section is considered the hardest.

This part takes 10 minutes in total and includes 2 tasks.

In the first task candidates make a short presentation answering some questions.

The second one is a conversation with the examiner.

Candidates choose one topic among four options and then talk with the examiner for 2-3 minutes.

Both tasks are recorded as the Speaking Test is evaluated by the CILS Centre at University for Foreigners of Siena.

What is the winning strategy to prepare this section?

During the exam preparation it is important to practice the speaking test as much as possible with a teacher.

This is good to gain more confidence and feel ready to face the exam.

Regarding the first task, the best strategy to get ready is trying the presentation many times, answering slightly different questions about yourself.

It is not difficult to prepare what to say in relation to some general topics.

For example, the city you are from or the city you live in, your job/studies, why you study Italian, your hobbies and so on.

For the second task simulating a short conversation with your teacher about any topics included in the B1 level is the perfect approach.
