Introduction
 

You can test your speaking proficiency by telling someone how to do a task familiar to you.

Guidelines
  Here are some guidelines to follow when you describe a process to test your speaking proficiency:
 
  • Use this task when you think you are at Intermediate level or higher.
  • You can use the same procedure more than once, but do not practice in between testing.
Things to do
  Here are the things to do when you describe a process to test your speaking proficiency:
 
  • Choose a process to talk about that you have not rehearsed or memorized.
  • Record yourself telling someone how to do this procedure.
  • Go back and read the description of the different levels of speaking proficiency in the ACTFL guidelines.
  • Listen to the recording, and decide as honestly as possible which level of the guidelines your performance matches.
