Hii Simon.. My sir said that about speaking , don't need to give unnecessary introduction because its time wastage so then you cant cover you all important things in que card. So what should I do about this


I assume you are talking about Part 2 (where you are given a cue card).

Remember, there is no score for 'covering all the things in the cue card', so don't worry about that. I strongly advise you to introduce the topic in around 10 to 20 seconds because it will help your talk become coherent, which is part of the marking descriptor. Make sure you clearly identify what you are talking about - many candidates in fact forget to do this and it is confusing when they speak for two minutes about something and you actually have no idea what they are talking about.

Dear simon
I was wondering if you could give us some advice about advantage/disadvantage essays?
This is an example topic"
One of the consequences of improved medical care is that people are living longer and life expectancy is increasing.
Do you think that advantages of this development outweigh the disadvantages?

Thank you
