The speaking test
Hello everybody I'm seeking your help and advice.
The question is: how to make low achievers succeed their speaking test?
I am asked to do the speaking test at the beginning of the one-hour session. I usually call to board one or 2 pupils and assign a topic (already covered in class). The problem is essentially with low achievers; they are not motivated to engage in any speaking activity. I tried to pair them up with excellent pupils but they refuse speaking. I know since they are not good at English they feel embarrased to talk in front of their classmates. how do I motivate the pupils into expressing themselves or interacting with each other?
Thanks in advance
