3 December 2017 Turkey 2 out of 4 Question1-1 None

The response addresses the task, but development of the topic is limited. Speech is basically intelligible, though listener effort is needed because of unclear articulation and choppy rhythm/pace, as in this excerpt, “Its like …the valuable of the Islamic era…and the…..empire..was the best…for the Arabs and Islam.” The response demonstrates limited range and control of grammar and vocabulary, and the speaker clearly reaches for vocabulary at times as in this excerpt, “It’s in the middle of Damascus, old Damascus, the tourists like to visit it because of the …old building and traditional stuff.” Because of the limitations in development, vocabulary, and delivery, the score is 2. Intonation is excellent, so the speaker is encouraged to focus on the mechanics of speech to raise the score.

The response addresses the task appropriately, but falls short of being fully developed. It is generally intelligible and coherent, with some fluidity of expression.

There are frequent pauses and filler sounds which interfere with the fluidity of delivery. The score is 3.

16 November 2017 Bangladesh 2 out of 4 Question1-1 None

Unfortunately, the volume on this response is very low, so not all words are audible. Based on what can be heard, the score is likely in the 2 range based on the sentence structure and pacing. There are obvious errors in grammar, as in this sentence, “I go with my foreign friend who is come from Italy…when I take him…he is…” Unfortunately, most sentences trail off into being inaudible, so an accurate score cannot be confirmed.
