M2 Oral Exam Contents
The 15-minute M2 oral exam concludes Language Courses I & II. It tests both the students'
knowledge of English and their ability to speak fluently, correctly and appropriately, without
significant native-language interferences.
In the exam, students must orally summarize, analyze and discuss a brief newspaper article in
English. They must be prepared to identify, classify and explain selected linguistic features
and write a short phonemic transcription.
The exam tests the language features taught in the two courses, LC I and LC II, based on their
respective coursebooks (see below).
