The "Free Conversation" and the Assessment of Oral Proficiency.
Chambers, Francine; Richards, Brian
Language Learning Journal, n11 p6-10 Mar 1995
Discusses the use of "free conversation" in oral examinations. The use of "free conversation" to describe structured interviews where the teacher does most of the questioning and the candidate supplies most of the information is inaccurate unless the format of tasks can genuinely allow the exchange of previously unknown information.
