- Dear Sherry ,
the reading cmprehension is not very tough...i mean in terms of time
they give you the question paper and you are expected to answer the
questions in 40 minutes...they do not pester youy ..it is quite
comfortable...infact the reading comprehension is the most
comfortable and you will have time to do it nicely ...only the last
passage is little difficult and lenghty with tricky questions so be
careful with that.
Also for speaking they asked me questions like
1.who does the shopping in the house hold
2.where do u like to shop and why?
3.what kind of stores do u prefer and why
5.what dont you like about shopping.
6.they aslso asked me questions like which cityh of US do u
live..why do u like it and why not?
what can you improve about the city..so be prepared to talk nicely
they will record your conversation so that they can grade it later.
they will give you a topic to speak on for one minite and then also
ask you questions on it.
basically the listening and speaking parts of the tests are not
easy ..one has to remain calm and try n answer to the best of
i hope this helps
all the best
if you have any more questions be free to ask
p.s-ye si have my test results i scored 8 ie overall grade...ifh you
can get an overall of 7 or more you can get high efficiency in
canadian language skills
