Listening和Reading沒如想像中完美（Reading答完後只剩五分鐘），而Writing的Part I感覺不錯，Part II就不太夠時間了。連續三小時左右的考試，原來沒有想像中漫長。
Then it came to the Speaking, which was totally OUT of my expectation.
For what I have heard, I started believing there would only be non-Chinese examiners. But I just got a 30 something Chinese lady who acted nothing like talking and discussing with me.
She spoke fast as hell (although not fast enough to lose me… lol) with no smile. And when I was talking, she acted like falling asleep. It was nothing like a friendly and nice chat that I have heard and expected.
But the worst part was the “discussion” task. I knew examiners tend to get candidates talking in case we got nothing to talk about. But this lady? She barely let me think!
After she STATED the questions (is it the so called “discussion”?), she wouldn’t wait for me to think for a second or two. She just burst out the follow-up explanation to the questions and said “Do you understand what does that mean?” (still speaking in a goddamn rushing speed).
I was forced to say something even before I could do the least amount of thinking!
“As the population of the world is growing, what do you think the government should do to cope with this situation?” Hell man I might not be able to give a decent answer to questions like that, not even if I had time to think!! IF I had.
And what made it worst was what she said at the end. “Actually I expected blahblahblah but you have been talking about something else.”
What the stupid hell are you talking about?! What do you mean by “expected”?! It IS a discussion. Not a QnA session!
In a discussion, even if you didn’t receive the expected “answer”, you try to continue the communication!
As an examiner, even if you wanted to finish your job quick, you don’t confuse a discussion with an interrogation!
