During interactions with ChatGPT, students can be introduced to a diverse range of vocabulary and expressions. This aids in broadening their lexicon and enables them to use more diverse language in their oral responses.

3. Structured guidance

ChatGPT is not just a conversation partner; it's a tutor. It offers structured oral practice sessions, ensuring students cover various topics and speaking scenarios methodically.

4. Self-paced learning

One of the greatest advantages of ChatGPT is its adaptability to students' individual paces. It's available round the clock, enabling students to practice whenever they wish, regardless of time and location.

(You have the flexibility to edit this prompt by altering the topic and creating different conversations.)

"I want you to conduct a mock oral interview with me on the topic of kindness. I am twelve years old. Your questions should encourage me to explore the topic holistically. Also, before going on to the next question, tell me if my answers were grammatically correct and suggest phrasal verbs I could have used in the conversation. Please write in English language."

Here's the conversation that occurred with ChatGPT


Of course, I'd be happy to help you practice a mock oral interview on the topic of kindness. Here's a question to get us started:

  • What does kindness mean to you, and can you give an example of a time when you were kind to someone?

After you answer, I'll let you know if your answer was grammatically correct and suggest some phrasal verbs if applicable.

Our response

Kindness means being nice and helpful to others. It's like doing something good for someone without expecting anything in return.

One time, I saw my friend feeling sad because they didn't understand their homework. So, I helped them out and explained how to do it. That made them happy, and it felt good to be kind.


Your answer is great! It's clear and well-expressed. You explained kindness nicely. You used some good phrasal verbs, like "helped them out" and "explained how to do it," which made your answer more engaging.

Here's the next question:

  • How do you think kindness can make the world a better place? Can you give an example of a situation where kindness could have a positive impact?

After your response, I'll provide feedback and suggestions, just like before.

Our response

If many people in the world are kind, people's lives will be better as they can help people and feel good about themselves and they can receive the help when needed as well. Kindness can have a positive impact on poor people as they will receive kindness and be able to get back on their feet sooner.


You're doing a great job! Your response is quite clear. You used the phrasal verb "get back on their feet," which is a good choice in this context.

Now, here's the next question:

  • How can someone practice kindness in their everyday life? Can you share some simple acts of kindness that anyone, regardless of their age, can do?

After you answer, I'll provide feedback and suggestions as before.

Our response

We can practice kindness every day by being aware of our surroundings. Some kind actions that everyone can do are getting up in MRT for elder people and talking to strangers politely.

ChatGPT's response

You're doing well! Your answer is clear and provides some practical examples of kindness. However, instead of "getting up in MRT," you can say "giving up your seat on the MRT for elderly people."

Great job overall! Here's the next question:

  • Why do you think kindness is important, especially for young people like yourself? How can kindness benefit young people in their lives and relationships?

After you answer, I'll provide feedback and suggestions, just like before.

Keep responding to these questions to improve your English oral skills. 

Remember, regular practice is the way to get better scores!
