In this blog I am going to give you a few tips on the Answer Short Questions exercise in the speaking module.

This exercise is the easiest one among the total 5 in the speaking module. Basically, you will be asked a question that could be answered in one or two words. The audio will play the question and as soon as the audio finishes, you can record your answer. If the answer is correct, you will be scored full marks. In a case where you don’t know or are not sure of the answer, just reply back “don’t know”. Its always better to do that rather than stumbling because the software can detect your audio disruption when you pause and can immediately stop your recording. 


In Answer Short Questions, there is an internal scoring of 10 pts to listening and 5 pts to speaking. The only way to tackle this exercise is by trying out maximum number of questions possible. Don’t worry, as most of the questions are on general topics.**
