MUET Speaking 800/2 tips and sample

Speaking exam is around the corner again.. some of you have taken this exam before and some are still virgins (hahahahhaha). What to expect? Well...

1. There will be not one, but 2 examiners at the table, and 4 candidates (ideally as total number of candidates for each session is 5 groups of 4 = 20) whom u can refer to as Candidate A, B C & D (NOT advised to use names, even if they are your friends). If you are the last or second last group and some candidates are absent, the examiners should divide the last 2 groups into 3 members each (3-3) instead of (4-2). If they don't do that, you have the right to request the 3-3 combination because the discussion will be more lively but always remember to ask politely.

2. For task A, expect to speak for a full 2 minutes, regardless of how many points you deliver (no deduction for number of points as MPM does not specify that you have to describe 3 points.) You just need to speak according to the topic confidently, fluently and accurately with good body language.

3. For task B, expect to speak for a full 10 minutes, regardless of if you manage to do a conclusion or not (last I heard, MPM does not require conclusions because natural conversations do not necessarily have conclusions but it is still nice to round up the discussion with a good conclusion). Do not dominate the discussion or on the other hand, do not also be a passenger with nothing to say. Ask your friends their opinions or help them end their sentences/ideas when they are stuck as this shows good management of discussion skills.

4. Smile, talk naturally (not robotic), crack some jokes and give creative ideas instead of boring predictable ones, laugh together and basically have a good time because the examiners are fed up of listening to the same old rubbish. If you make them laugh (in a good way), chances are they will be more willing to award better marks.


Let's analyse last year's speaking question. Here is a sample Band 6 scripts for task A.


Day 1, Session 1 Year End 2011 (not exact words)
People who give the most meaningful contribution to society
a)garbage collectors
b)toilet cleaners
c)road sweepers
d)gardeners

Candidate A:

Good morning to the examinerS and my fellow candidateS. There are many people in this world who contribute meaningfully to society. Some sit in high positions while those who do menial tasks are no less worthy. Likewise, garbage collectors have a significant contribution to our society as not many would voluntarily do this 'stinky' but necessary job.
First and foremost, I think garbage collectors deserve merit because they are the ones who maintain the cleanliness of our neighbourhood. This is because, without them, there would be rubbish strewn around everywhere which is a sight for sore eyes. Moreover, the stench itself would cause unease among citizens who need to go about their daily business. For example, rotten food, soiled diapers and so on would be an unbearable sight if not collected and disposed of properly.
Secondly, garbage collectors should be held in high esteem as their job of maintaining the hygiene of society is a crucial one. This means that without them, diseases would spread rampantly. In addition, the overall health of society would suffer as garbage that is uncollected is an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and insects. For instance, piles of uncollected rubbish is the perfect place for dengue and malaria carrying mosquitos and many more.
Last but not least, a garbage collector's job is very meaningful to society because in this modern era, humans have managed to produce so much rubbish per day that without them, the sheer amount would drown the whole city in a week! Imagine how much plastic packaging each of us throws away within a day. Take for example all the empty plastic bottles, Maggi mee wrappers, plastic packaging from the supermarket and even paper products like cigarette boxes and newspapers among others.
In short, society would be seriously crippled if garbage collectors did not do their job. Therefore, I truly believe that garbage collectors provide a very meaningful contribution to today's society. Thank you.

So what do you think about this sample? What makes it a high band response?

Now it's your turn, you can try to write your sample script for Candidate B, C or D below and I'll tell you what band you may get. Happy speaking! :P

  1. Good morning to examiners and my fellow candidates. I can ensure there are many different levels of human such as those live a high quality life and those live in low quality life. But, now's society are not interest in serving for citizens. Road sweeper, who play a crucial role in keeping road cleanly.
    Anyone here desire to serve for social members today? There are small number of social members who willing to do it so. Road sweeper contribute a lot of mental and physical in serving citizens.
    If the road is not being cleaned up, what will happen to the next? I think the index of car accident of our country will grow up by this way. Take for example, that will cause a series of road accident when the road be covered by a layer of oil.
    Furthermore, that will expose social members in an unhygienic environment even expose citizens in suffering diseases such as diarrhea and vomiting. In order to prevent the incident occurred, road sweeper play an important role to prevent social member exposed in an unhygienic condition even prevent from suffering diseases.
    Last but not least, beautiful environment can lead us live in a comfortable and an enjoyable environment. We will obtain the fresh air. Instead, road are not be cleaned up will destroy the beautiful and fantastic world. The fresh are will be turned to stinky air. That is the incident we cannot accept.
    They are playing their role to rise up the quality of life. I truly believe that road sweeper give the most meaningful contribution to society.

  7. Good morning to the examiners and all candidates. Human should be treating each other’s respectively immaterial types of jobs they contribute to society. Among the entire services field that’s provided, I would like to say that toilet cleaners are the most contribution to society.
    First and foremost, toilet cleaners are the people who keep cleaning the toilets or gens clean and good looking after everyone usage. To ensure the toilets condition clean and available to be using all the time, toilet cleansers bound to act in full commitment and responsible to carry out their task. Besides that, sometimes this category of workers is also facing some problems on people looking down on them. Thus, it is their must to stay calm and patient to fulfill their task. Indirectly, the contribution also comes to society in sense of toilet cleansers showing him or her personal moral value on the dairy roles that’s being learned and respectful by the society itself.
    Secondly, a person who works as toilet cleaner is less salary even though they work hard. Their contributions are unlimited however the salaries are fixed. Furthermore, we can’t make sure the number of times they need to perform their cleaning per day. Thus, their contribution is so unforeseeable. Moreover, no matter how’s good the facilities on toilets provided, it is useless if without a toilet cleaner to perform the cleaning job. As to say, people, visitors or customers will feel reluctant visiting a venue that’s dirty and stinky and will causing lose of popularities and revenue.
    Thirdly, toilet cleansers are those who work hard in behind without notice of others to benefit many aspects. For example, toilet cleansers also keep good image of a company, organization or corporation when the time people visiting their building. Thus, toilet nowadays also becomes part of crucial element within the hospitality management field. With or without our notice, toilets always provided all the tools that necessary for us to use. It is also the responsible of toilet cleaners to ensure the completely set of toilets materials to be provide. By the way, toilet cleaners in society nowadays also have to clean other areas if the toilets are clean. Thus, their jobs would be variable differently based on the circumstances and situation.
    In a nut shell, society will run out of comfortable if no one willingly to act as toilet cleaners.
    Therefore, I strongly believe that’s contributions from toilet cleaners is undeniable highest integrity and most valuable moral value in their roles.

    ReplyDelete
  16. is there any tips for the muet speaking test which will be held on this wednesday???

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't know if this is actually correct(correct me if I'm wrong)

    Candidate B : toilet cleaners

    I bid good morning to both the examiners and my fellow candidates.contribution to society is often thought of as contributing to new buildings, keeping the peace like the patrolling policemen and so on. All very thought of contribution to a higher cause but, the people who contributes most to society are the ones who do all the dirty works like toilet cleaners. Without them our public toilets would be filled with graffiti of all sort as well as the by-products of our own doing being laid waste to rot and decompose with time.
    First, toilet cleaners do most of the dirty jobs to sanitise a place which is considered to be one of the most "unclean" in Asian society. An example of this is that toilet cleaners cleans the mouth of the toilet as well as the body of the toilet in addition to keeping the place clean as a whistle so that people who use these toilets would feel comfortable as well as not being driven off by the stench of human by-products.
    secondly, toilet cleaners put their life on the line as they are prone to being infected with bacteria but they do it anyway. They take responsibility of cleaning the toilets because the people who use the toilets is not responsible enough to flush their own waste down the drain and making sure that they use facilities like these clean in other words, it's more closely related to vandalism.
    Lastly, toilet cleaners do what they do, which is keeping the cleanliness of our toilets. This is because most wouldn't even dare to come close to a dirty toilet. Their job as I said is keeping the cleanliness of the toilet, a toilet that is not clean can be hazardous to the health of society, therefore I strongly believe that toilet cleaners a contribute and provide for society. Thank you

    2. let me list what I think went wrong here(actually some editing):

      -the ones who do the dirty works such as the toilet cleaners
      -being laid to waste.
      -do most of the dirty jobs, such as sanitising
      -as they are prone to being infected by bacteria
      -the people who use these toilets are not.
      -and the order of which I arrange my sentence if it has anything to do with it
