Objective Proficiency p 96. Living Alone. Extra Speaking


In the Speaking exam, each candidate has an individual long turn. You will be given a topic you have to speak about and prompts containing photos and questions with ideas you can include. The emphasis is on your ability to speak fluently using a wide range of vocabulary and grammatical structures and to organise your ideas into a coherent whole.


 Read the quote and comment on the following aspects:
"I'm not saying that there's anything better than mated bliss at its best, but I'm saying that living alone is as good in its own way. But we haven't quite given ourselves permission to recognize that."
Barbara Feldon

Are there more benefits or drawbacks to living alone nowadays? Can you think of reasons why in the modern world more than 50 percent of adults are single, and why so many love living alone? Talk about the rise in solo-living and the sociology behind it.
