Notes

  • Sometimes the examiner has, in his or her question book, a follow-up question to ask following Part 2 - "Would you like to share that film with your friends?" In this case, that idea is not included in the Part 2 wording. It is possible that this Part 2 is like that and the Part 2 just says, "Describe a film you enjoyed watching".

  • If the idea of sharing it is actually written in the question wording, it might be an idea to quickly mention how you would (not "will") share it with your friends.
