The oral part consists of reading (or translation) of an authentic specialized (technical, scientific) English text from the student's field of study that is to be prepared at home (30 standard pages, i.e. 1800 characters per page). It also includes reinterpretation of the text, analysis of grammatical, lexical and stylistic features of the text, and conversation.
