This is the instruction two students (Chiara and Victoria) receive for Speaking Part 2:

A girl is going to live in another city. The people in her tennis club want to give her a goodbye present. Talk together about the different things they could give her, and then say which would be best.
1. Make a list of presents you could give the girl.
2. Go to page 2 and look at the picture in the video at 2:41 to check.
3. Now watch the video from 2:41 to 5:20 and decide whether the following statements refer to Victoria or Chiara.

In the following text, choose the correct option.

4. Match the expressions below to the categories, ‘Agreeing’, ‘Disagreeing’, ‘Asking’ and ‘Suggesting’.

Match the expressions to the categories.

Now read the following dialogue from Victoria and Chiara’s discussion and decide which of the expressions above could be used for numbers 1-10.
