※What the candidate should do
·Show the examiner you are confident by smiling and looking at him or her in the eye.
·When the examiner shakes your hand return his or her handshake firmly.
·Answer the questions you are asked as clearly and in as much detail as possible.
·Show that you are in control by talking freely about yourself and your past.
·Make sure you have practiced enough before the test so that the past tenses you use are accurately formed and appropriate.
※What the candidate should not do
·Do not tell the examiner that you are nervous or blink your eyes and move about too much.
·Do not shake hands with the examiner as if your extended hand were a cold wet fish!
·Do not cut the conversation short with answers of only one word, or short answers.
·Do not wait for another question if you know that the examiner wants you to keep talking.
·Do not be afraid to correct yourself if you make a grammatical mistake. But fluency is more important than grammar at this stage.
