Amy is considering taking either the TOEFL or the IELTS. To do this she wants to work on her oral English and improve her vocabulary. Consider using the IELTS questions page http://smartyingyu.com/ielts/ to find topics for conversation. Help Amy to find new vocabulary so that she can prepare for a speaking on that topic next class.
