EXCLUSIVE LPAT speaking exam past paper sample script, plus comments, so you know what HKEAA expects. The writer of the script scored Level 4-4.5 in his LPAT presentation.


The LPAT Challenge

In the speaking exam, the examiners have to assess so many things in just a few minutes. Make it easier for them to give you high marks with this EXCLUSIVE script that I wrote (I got level 4.5 in grammatical and lexical accuracy and range, and 4 in organization and cohesion).  


Topic: Wastefulness


What you get

Take a look at the EXCLUSIVE script. Full of grammar and vocab items that you can use in your own presentatin. Typed. 


How this helps

- Understand what the examiners expect of you.

- You can have a template and  structure to follow.

- You get a sense of what is good enough for level 4-4.5 from this example.



Comes with very detailed comments about the good practices used in the script.


A taste of what you get-- the script

Having worked in retail before, I witness on a daily basis people making purchases of things that they do not necessarily need. I wonder how often do people buy out of necessity, and how often out of vanity, peer pressure or just out of sheer enjoyment. However, I urge everyone to resist the cynicism of blaming customers or calling them wasteful. Shopping motivates people in their work, gives them happiness, and keeps other people in jobs. It allows them to hang out with friends and much of the shopping time is just spent looking pleasurably without purchase.


A taste of what you get-- the comments

Comments (organization and cohesion):

  • Clear sense of progression of arguments, starting from individual, ending with the economy
  • The introduction succinctly previews the three arguments and attempts to capture the audience’s attention by using personal examples
  • Conclusion contains an effective summary of main points and a wise expansion of discussion. The conclusion offers a new direction in understanding human needs


Comments (grammatical and lexical accuracy and range):

  • A wide range of sentence patterns are used, e.g. ‘As vain as it sounds,’ (modifier), ‘Having worked in retail before,’ (participle phrase)
  • A good variety of vocabulary items, notable examples include, ‘timepieces;’, ‘chronographs’, ‘thrifty’, ‘virtuous’
  • Use of metaphors, e.g. ‘pillar’, ‘engine’, ‘pat on the shoulder’, ‘bite the bullet’
