Lesson Plan Text
BULATS Speaking practice on the topic of training- Student A (Examiner)
After asking some general questions about your partner’s name and home(s), ask some of the
questions about training below for about two minutes (because there is only one topic).
What did you study at university?
What training do people with your job usually do?
Are you planning to take any courses in the future?
Are you studying anything at the moment?
Did you have any training when you first joined your company? (What did you think of it?)
Tell your partner “Choose one of the two topics on this worksheet to talk about for one minute. You
have one minute to prepare what you are going to say. You can make notes to help you if you like”
and hand them the Student B Worksheet to prepare. After one minute ask them “Which topic did
you choose?” and prompt them to start speaking.
Describe a course that you attended.
You should say:
what it was about
what you did on the course
how it was assessed
Were you satisfied with the course? Give reasons for your answer
Describe a self-study book that you have used.
why you chose that book
what things it included
how useful it was
And please say who you would recommend that book to and why.
Stop your partner after one minute and ask one or two questions about what they said during their
presentation, e.g. “You said… Do you think…?” or “Why do you think that…?”
Tell your partner “Now we are going to have a conversation together. You are planning to organise
a conference and I am someone who works for a conference centre. Ask me for some information
about my conference centre, including the questions on this sheet.” Let your partner lead the
conversation. Answer questions from your partner about the things below, or any other questions
they ask. Use the information below and make up any answers which are not written there.
The sizes of rooms that are available: One room for up to 250 people, seven rooms for up to 50
people, and ten smaller meeting rooms
Equipment and catering available: You only offer hot drinks and snacks, but can recommend
outside caterers who can supply lunch buffets etc.
Costs: Please make up your own answers
Then discuss this question with your partner:
What makes a good conference?
You can also give your opinion, but make sure that your partner does most of the speaking. Ask
further questions on this topic if you need to.
