ESB’s Junior Assessments are designed to develop Speaking and Listening skills. The Introductory Grade prepares Year 2 candidates for the ESB Graded Examinations in Speech. Tasks are targeted to the National Curriculum. Our assessment style is unique with students working with a supportive peer group. All assessment is external, in your school at a time to suit you.
Candidates must talk for 2 minutes about a favourite toy or possession, something they have made or a souvenir from a holiday. Children should choose something special to them, which they have plenty to talk about.Close
