I like how their Italian accent is strong. I think it’s cute. On the other hand, this video reminded me when I took my first Cambridge proficiency test. Best of luck for them!

Why am I watching this, when I’m preparing for the C1 test?

This test is so important for students who want to go to great universities like Cambridge. I’m an English teacher in Brazil and my students have difficulties in learning some words, but it is normal.

hate to see people being rude to them in the comments, they’re clearly children learning a new language so different from their own native language, and they kindly agree to filming and posting the video, they are doing great 😊

Thank you Cambridge for uploading this and many other videos first of all.
To ALL the people who read this, try not to be critical. It is unfair to write an opinion which is negative when NO ONE is perfect.

All candidates can make mistakes. These kinds of videos are uploaded so others can have the opportunity to experience what it is like to do these types of exams and hopefully learn positive things from other candidates doing any speaking exam.

Well done! Passed my C2 after 4 years in an english college in switzerland. I still remember the FCE exam:). In my teenage years I stuttered, which got worse when I was nervous. However my teachers knew that and helped me. Also the examiners are familiar with that and it wont really impact your overall mark. Just try to follow the instructions and talk as often with friends/ or your teacher. Good luck if you are reading this;)

I like that the examinator is smiling at them even when they have nothing to say. I wish all examinators were like her :)

P.S. Thank you, guys, for 100 likes!!! I've never got so many :)

Hello there! Thank you for sharing this useful video. As a teacher using a book to teach certain parts of speaking at various points, would it be possible to not the timestamps indicating each part so it's easier to find the right part. It's not a huge issues, if impractical as the video is about 7 mins. But it may useful for higher levels. Many thanks :)

I like how she said "No, not at all". Not many of my Italian students say this. Watching this reminds me that the mistakes they make are identical to mine who are also 12-13 years old. It happens :) We learn from them. Bravi ragazzi!

It’s so cute how they end their words in English w a slight vowel sound just like they would in Italian

Author — Dany Boza


I love how they say vowels after words that finish with a consonant like "balse", "interestingue" or "bookse" because in their mother tongue almost every word finishes in a vowel. Thus they adopted this festure when they were speaking english

These students are very competent indeed for an A2 level. Bravi!

Yesterday I've taken an online English test, and while I was taking it I though that I was doing very well, but after I got the result I found that I am A2! Btw, I've got a result of 5 in IELTS, and my speaking is good.

Their performance seems to be quite solid, as a self-taught English-learner I'm well aware of the ins and outs of said language as well as its learning process.

Don't be too harsh on these children, A2 is the second level on the "beginners" spectrum after all, not to mention here in Spain anyone passing secondary school is expected to be at said level and yet many aren't even capable of that much, for these kids to be doing so well is nothing short of mesmerizing.

Are the examiners’ comments and the candidates’ marks available? I mean, below some other Speaking Exam Videos there were downloadable examiners’s notes to get even a clearer picture of what is expected.
