Could you please rephrase that question/ topic? I’m not exactly sure what you mean…
I’m not exactly sure how to answer that question, but (perhaps)…
That’s a rather difficult question, but (maybe)…
I’m sorry, but I don’t know much about…However, it might be possible that…
Maybe I can answer your question by telling you about a personal experience I had.
That’s an interesting question…Let me see. Well, I suppose that…
Well, I think there are three ways of looking at it:
In my opinion there are three ways of it: First of all,…Next,…Then,…
Have I given you enough information?
Is that all you’d like to know?
I think that’s about it.
Would you like me to tell you more about…
I’m afraid that’s about as much as I know…
I can’t think of anything else right now…
※You can state you have finished by saying:
I think that’s all.
That’s it, I think…
Have I answered your question?
Does that give you a clear idea?
※You can invite your interviewer to talk by saying:
I think you know more about this than I do.
Bob, don’t you agree?
What’s your opinion?
What do you think?

※What the candidate should do
·Organize your reply by first commenting on the topic given.
·Then think of at least 2 main aspects of the topic that are worth discussing.
·Explain that you will discuss each aspect in turn before you begin your talk in tamest. (formally and objectively is best)
·Try to talk around a difficult topic by guessing. Using“maybe”,“perhaps”etc. It is much better than saying nothing!
※What the candidate should not do
·Do not say that you cannot talk about the topic, or that you’ve never thought about it.
·Do not worry if you do not understand a question/ topic. Ask the examiner to repeat it.
·Do not digress too much. Keep to the topic, otherwise it will appear as though you do not understand what the question topic is.
·Do not wait for question-show that you are capable of discussing the topic without being prompted by the examiner.
