Hi, Simon.
Thanks a lot for your superb answers.
I have a question. What if I'll keep my part 1 answers long and direct, but speak faster. Will examiner interrupt me?

hi Simon,
if I had to choose, I'd say the living room, why you used had to not have to???
is it wrong to say if i have to choose....
thanks in advance

Hi simon
What about other questions in
In part 2 speaking
Thank you for your collaboration

Dear Malek,

He wrote 'had' cos he is talking about the past when he actually got that house and if had a choice or had to select one but at that point he just didnt give thought to it, thats why, he just mentioned up there, if he had to :)

I got a question about part 2. Should we use any transition words like "moving to next question" or "answering next question" or just give the description as a whole.

Best of luck to my friends.
Thanks sir for u r help and suggestion ........

Hi friends I m vating

I am looking for a friend with 6.5-7 speaking level to improve our speaking skill with sharing our knowledge. if you are serious, do not hesitate to join me.
My recent speaking score: 6.5
My Skype ID:haleh.2014

'had to' could be used as a polite form by changing the verb's tense.

I am looking for many friends with 6.0-6.5 speaking level to improve our speaking skill with sharing our knowledge
