Good oral practice for the monologue

It is quite hard to come across interesting material which fits the needs of EOI or That's English! students. Sometimes, however, we strike lucky and find a gold mine.

Dominic Coles IETLS Blog is, as we can work out from its name, a blog that aims at preparing students for the IELTS exam, which is beyond our scope, but which has lots of resources that we can use to our advantage.

By clicking on the image below you will be directed to an entry in Dominic's blog which can come in very handy to prepare the monologue part of the oral exam from Básico 2 up to Intermediate 2 students. As well as very useful advice and a standard oral exam topic ("Talking about a childhood friend") we can hear a student perform the task.

But there is much more to it. On this link you will find a list of topics with further practise.
