【DSE 英文】DSE Speaking Tips 3 – Stalling for time 拖延時間技巧

Sometimes you’re asked a difficult question. Here are tips from the examiners reports to help you to get more time to think about your answer.

      • Don’t use stock phrases to start your answer.
      • Repeat back the question to have some more time to think.

    • Don’t use phrases like “That’s a good question” or “Let me think about that”: examiners have heard them lots of times
    • Examiners really hate it if you use these phrases when the question isn’t difficult: it’s a waste of time, and examiners find it annoying
    • Don’t waste time saying ‘Thank-you for your question’ at the start of your answer. Just go straight into your answer.

    • Only use phrases like the following if you really need time to think about the answer.
    • If you need to get some extra time to think, repeat back the question. If possible, change the words, so that you are not just copying the examiner
    • The word ‘well’ is a natural way to move on from the question to your answer.
