Oral Test: Mindmaps

For the Oral test you will need to:

  • Design 3 mindmaps like the ones showed in the pictures bellow. 

  • Also, you will need to have a conversation with a partner. Be ready to ask and answer questions in a short conversation about the lessons practiced in class..

Bring something to share with your classmates (a little snack).

  • All mindmaps must be on paper.. No digital material.. We'll be placing your posters on the wall for everyone to look at and learn from.

  • And the most important.... Have fun!!! Take a lot of photos and post them to our facebook group..

More memories of past exams... here: 

These are the contents of the different units and the different levels.... check your level and your contents:
