    I have to do a speaking assessment and the mark scheme says you get more marks for talking about a challenging topic. I have no idea what to talk about. Any ideas?

    Hiya,

    It is always much easier if you pick something that you're passionate about as this will come across when you speak. Challenging topics could include topics that are surrounded by controversy or something current in the news that affects you/young people- e.g. animal testing for makeup, war, global warming, exploitation e.g. sweatshops. This is good because you can then argue for/against an issue.
