The speaking sub-test of the OET is one task that is divided into two separate role-plays. The role-plays will be between you (playing a health professional) and an interlocutor (playing a patient or patient carer). These role-plays will relate to real-life interactions you may have in your specific healthcare field. You will also have a warm-up conversation with the interlocutor before you begin the role-plays, however this conversation will not be assessed. The entire sub-test will take about 15 minutes.
