ESB’s Junior Assessments are designed to develop Speaking and Listening skills. Junior Grade 2 is designed for Year 4 candidates. Tasks are targeted to 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.
Talk about an object, model, picture or piece of equipment for 3 minutes explaining its importance to you. Candidates should explain their personal interest in the subject. They might choose to talk about: something they have seen, made or assembled, a collection they are developing, the kit or equipment for a sport or game they play. Practise speaking with minimal notes or prepared text, but aim for a natural and spontaneous style of delivery without notes.Close
