    I'm doing my spoken language assessment soon and I'm doing it based on the death penalty.

    My question is can I argue against or for?

    And another thing is should I read off paper or make bullet points? Or how else did you do yours or are doing it?

    Oh the English NEA is piss easy unless: you have anxiety problems or you are socially awkward....

    (Which is most of TSR)

    But don't sweat! You can argue whatever; just don't sit on the fence. You can argue both but make sure to some to an argument in your conclusion, often presenting a counter argument for whatever you did not choose.

    I did mine with my best mate because we have awesome chemistry. I had a script but I sort of knew mine by head anyway and I could improvise. It depends on what your teacher says: Some students weren't allowed scripts, others were for different schools (or at least my area).

    Basically if your crap at improvising and memorising what you want to say, go get a script, otherwise get those cards with a bunch of bullet points on them. Always remember to look into your teachers eyes; if you hate eye contact look in between your fav classmates eyes or at the wall just above there head, but always look into your teachers eyes (or whoever is marking)

    Hi again,

    I'm having trouble figuring out whether I should read from memory or off paper...

    How should I present?

    At my school we weren't allowed to read of paper but could have bullet points to jog our memory. Speaking from memory is best as i'm pretty sure you get marks for eye contact so will do worse if you're constantly looking down at a sheet.

    At our school, we were allowed to read off the paper as long as we make substantial eye contact with the camera. As in we weren't allowed to look at the paper the whole time but we had a script to read off but we needed to look at the camera a lot.

    i also did a spoken language assessment on the death penalty, just make sure to act very emotional and passionate about the subject and include facts and statistics. also i would advise you to roughly have an idea of what you are going to say and not read off a paper, you can show your interest in the subject more this way, dont be nervous and enjoy it. good luck
