Final Practical Exam:Some Final Points

Some final points to think about while preparing your final exam:

1. Structure, Structure, Structure
Remember you should try to have:
* an introduction; and,
* a conclusion
In addition to the body of your speech. Try and make your them about 15 seconds each although given the amount of time you have your introduction should be longer than your conclusion.

2. KISS [Keep It Simple, Stupid!]
Remember that you need to keep the language simple. No big words!! The object of the exercise is to talk at a level an ordinary patient might understand.

3. Practice, Practice, Practice
Try and leave some time for practice. Do it in front of a mirror, a friend, your sister... You don't want to speak too long. Remember, you have at the most 3 minutes after that you will be stopped, stopped, stopped [Ibrahim, read my lips "Stopped !!!"]. You also don't want to speak for too short a time.

Finally, if you have any questions, email, phone or contact me by messenger. I will try and be on line when possible.

Now now, be good and happy, Simon
