I already took the test yesterday. The role playing was the same as the one you taught us. However, the discharge instruction portion is very much simplified … So, if all those who will take the test tried practicing [your] instructions – they would probably just do fine. There’s no time limit at all. After the role playing, they asked me to compare … I thought that’s the end of the task. However, there were some follow up questions. I am just hoping for the best. Thanks Kim. =) J.
J, I appreciate your comments. I am glad it was an easier format for you. Like with writing I like to cover all the basis, to make sure that people are really prepared and confident. If I prepared them for an easier discharge instruction, and then they got a harder one they would say I did not prepare them.Thank you for the details. It clarifies things for me. It seems that in the last while, at some of the testing centers they have changed the format so that instead of dealing with a patient that is arguing and trying to persuade him or her to do the patient care, the persuasive argument is in a question format. It is still the same skill [that I teach].
I will integrate that into the speaking consultation. I really appreciate it.
I am glad the weather has been nice for you. I hope your trip back goes smoothly. Please let me know how you do, and please stay in touch!
P.S. It is good to know about the time limit, so others do not have to worry. As I said, I am certain you did very well!
