engVid quiz

Test your understanding of this English lesson

Test your understanding of the English lesson by answering these questions. You will get the answers and your score at the end of the quiz.
Part two of the speaking task takes about three minutes in total.

The examiner may ask you questions about your family, friends, food, sports, and your hobbies to get to know you. This section of the IELTS is like an interview.

Should you should write full sentences when you make your notes for this section of the IELTS?

Which of the following expressions is a good way to introduce what you plan to talk about?

It is necessary to talk about every point on the cue card to do well.

These words: Secondly, most importantly, above all, for example, such as, therefore, then
are examples of __________.

Which of the following will help you do well on part two of the speaking task?

In part two of the speaking task, you will likely have to describe something and use the past tense.

If you want to do well on part two, you should have a quick introduction ("I'd like to talk about..."), cover all the points on the card, and have a short conclusion ("My trip to the Science Center was incredible and one I will never forget.").

You should read as many sample cue cards for part two before the test and try to memorize answers for all of them.

    Hey there.

    Monday, September 29th 2014

    Hi Simara. I also have the same question as you had. It was not given in her lecture about slang words. So i picked transitional words instead. I really think it is correct. Thanks for listening. God bless.

    Monday, November 3rd 2014

    same here!

    Tuesday, March 29th 2016

“Secondly, most importantly, above all, for example, such as, therefore, then ” are all considered slangs?

Monday, June 17th 2013

    Simara, I think there is an mistake about that question, these words are not slangs. These are transitions words. I kiss from Argentina. I hope see you in the soccer world cup 2014. Bye

    Tuesday, June 18th 2013

    Definitely not. All this words are transitions for sure. The answer is wrong.

    Tuesday, June 18th 2013

    I am also very confuse? Need clarification, why are they slang?

Thursday, June 5th 2014

Secondly, most importantly,
above all, for example, such as, therefore, then alot aren’t transitions?

Wednesday, July 2nd 2014


Friday, July 25th 2014

Saturday, March 7th 2015

can i get EMMA’s cell NO?

Wednesday, April 22nd 2015

Hi dear Emma
First of all I want to say tank you for your attempt to make your students’s English improvement,

Monday, June 15th 2015

Hi Emma, could you team develop a mobile app which covers all these videos?
You might get money from that :))

Thursday, June 18th 2015

Hey Guys, I believe there’s something wrong with the answer of question 6. I answered transitions, And the correct answer were marked as “slang”.
