Examiner Questions:

May I see your identification?
Yes, of course, here is my passport that I used to register for this exam, please take a look. (***Using full sentences for this question (and the next) is a good idea because it helps you gain confidence early in the interview)).

What is your full name?
My given name is Thomas and my surname is Johnson, please just call me Tom for sort.

How are you feeling today?
I’m quite excited about this exam, and I’m also feeling confident as I have put in hundreds of hours in preparation for this test over the past six months.

(***Practice confidence in your speaking – this means, force yourself to make eye contact with your speaking partners, speak loud, and don’t stress too much about mistakes – think about speaking confidence like a three-year-old child. Don’t worry too much about how you say it, just get it out.)

What do you plan to do after this exam?
I will take a deep breath and exhale some stress, after that I’ll go home get changed, and do some fun relaxing activities like go to the theater with some friends. I’ve been meaning to watch the new Pixar animation that just came out.

(***For the first few questions it is a very good idea to use English that you know is 100% accurate so that you make a good first impression. Do not get too fancy or unique.)

PART 1
Let’s talk about the weather

How often does it rain in your city? (torrential downpour – very heavy rain in jungles)
In my city of Victoria, it rains quite frequently, I think about 170 days of the year. This part of the world is one of the oldest temperate rainforests so there is much precipitation. In fact, it was raining cats and dogs from about 9 am to midnight yesterday.
What do you like to do when it is sunny? (The conjunction ‘when’ indicates a REAL condition, so be affirmative and do NOT use ‘would’.)
Whenever the sun is beaming down on Victoria, I like to go out for hikes in nature as the forests come to life with sounds of birds and it’s a great way to get fresh air and stay fit. I just went for a lovely hike with my friends this past Saturday and it was a beautiful day.

How do you keep yourself cool on hot days?
When the temperature is up in the high 30s, and it’s a scorcher of a day, I keep myself cool by drinking lots of water, staying in air-conditioned rooms as much as possible, and finding some shade under a tree. Fortunately, there is a large pine tree in my backyard that shelters me from the sun.

If you could make the perfect weather, what would it be? Why?
Given that I had some sort of divine power to control the elements, I would make the weather around 22 degrees Celsius with a gentle breeze and slightly overcast. This would provide the perfect atmosphere for ultimate comfort to play sports outside like basketball and football. In fact, Victoria does get this type of weather from late May until late September.

Have you ever seen snow? If yes, where?
As a Canadian, I’ve seen lots of snow. In fact, I’m an avid skier so every winter I spend a fair bit of time playing in the snow. I consider myself quite lucky as snow is a very magical part of nature.
