  20. 20. Individual Oral 25% Part 1: The student’s presentation of the visual stimulus (approximately 1–2 minutes) At the beginning of the 15-minute preparation period, the student should be shown two previously unseen visual stimuli. These should be from different topic areas within the three themes and represent different genres (for example, picture, photograph, cartoon) provided by the teacher. They should also be relevant to the culture(s) of the country where the language is spoken. The student is allowed to take brief working notes into the interview room for reference. Part 2: The teacher’s questions on the visual stimulus (approximately 2–3 minutes) Part 3: A general conversation on a broad range of topics (approximately 4–5 minutes) This should begin with at least two questions on the written assignment and move on to a discussion on a broad range of topics (at least two topics) from the prescribed list in the language ab initio syllabus content. The topics selected for discussion should be different from that of the visual stimulus and the written assignment. What is your written assignment about? Why did you choose this as your written assignment? What did you learn from the written assignment?
