Question How to pass the SEP component of the CS Exam?

Is it to speak clear English
Or to understand the SP language easily without asking him to repeat or even to avoid looking like as if I don't understand him
i think we have to remember that it is called spoken, not understanding?? any advices?

The various points used to judge spoken english are

- was the SP able to understand the candidate clearly
- was the candidate able to understand the SP
- vocabulary
- grammar
- repair strategies

there is no separate english exam... you are just judged during the encounter.
