Keep in mind that speaking in a short monologue about a certain topic (as you are going to do in Part 2) is the same as writing orally in a way! When you begin talking, you will need an opening sentence to introduce the topic that you are going to talk about (introduction); you will cover all the points that you are asked in the task (main body); and last but not least, you will wrap-up everything if you get the chance and the examiner doesn’t stop you (conclusion).
So, in between this short monologue some useful phrases will be handy for you in order to help you begin talking; organise your thoughts; and sound natural.
1.) Every time you introduce a new idea on the topic it will be better if you start talking using a general statement to get you started. For example, if the main topic of Part 2 is about a book you’ve read recently you can begin by saying:
“I’ve read many books recently, but the one which really impressed me the most was ‘Notes from the Underground’ by Dostoyefski because…”
“I’m not exactly a book lover, but one of the books I’ve read and I enjoyed was….”
“It’s been ages since I read a good book. One book I recently read was… but I wasn’t thrilled about it because….”
As you see, you can choose to say anything according to your own situation. Whatever you choose, introduce the topic by saying something general and then move on to the specific point you want to make.
2.) Also, pay attention to the examples above as I used a variety of words and not only “I liked“. I used: enjoyed, thrilled, impressed etc.. Do that too. Use a variety of words and phrases while you speak. Just like writing, avoid using the same word or phrase throughout your short talk.
You can do the same when you introduce your main points. For example:
“This book belongs to classic literature and what makes it unique is the fact that it is……”
“Actually, it is the kind of book that a person would read at the beach. It is…”
“One thing that I found really interesting about it is that it…”
“I’m not really fond of these books but this one stands out because….”
In this way, you give yourself time to organise the main points that are going to follow.
3.) If it is time to conclude, you can use the following phrases:
“Well, I think I would recommend that book if someone wants a book which…”
“Overall, it is a very good book and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.”
“All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone I know.”
Of course these are just examples, but you can use these phrases to any topic given.
