    Wow, my dear girl teacher,
    That begs a problem.Because most people in oral test can simply say some basic topics, such as dailylife and wether, etc., it is unnecessary to say something in detail. Hmm, the longest answer is in 2 minutes. Xixi, as for me, when I answer this 2-minutes question, i will directly say anything related to the topic what I can remeber immediately. So even the first sentence you told me is still difficult for me,



    Sir Ronbee. I know it's a little rudeness, but could you pls tell us how old are you? Xixi, at least tell us a age range. OK?

    3rd conditional (past perfect) = impossible/unreal
    zero conditional (present tense; if ~ when) = fact/truth

    "If you work at it, you will improve." = 1st conditional
