First of all, learn to communicate through discrete signs with your partner. I forgot who was it that is the same group with you. Second, because you only have one friend there, be selfish when you ask questions. Just ask things like, 'Candidate C, what is your opinion' 'Candidate A, do you agree with me?'. Never ask your friend if they have anything to talk. This might back fire if your friend has nothing. It is ok to ask to those that are not your friends. Third of all, in part A, just utilise all your time. Don't stop talking until you are asked to stop. If you ran out of points, give many examples. When you are finding for points, just start with points, the examples can come when you are speaking. Forth, when they are presenting, try your best to write down their points in Part A. In Part B, try to not use back your points in Part A. You can use other candidates points in Part A. Never say I agree with Candidate A's points in part A. Assume Part A and Part B are different things. For part B, take the initiative to start the discussion. You can make a basic introduction. Good morning to everybody, today we will be discussing about "insert topic here". I truly believe/agree/think that..... Take the initiative to make a conclusion too. Simple one like, after a long discussion, we have all come to agree with...or half of us is with....and the other half....things like that. Just describe the conclusion. Describe your situation after the discussion. When the discussion comes to a standstill and everyone agrees with the same point, initiate a new discussion by first raising your opinion on a new point, then ask the other candidates about their opinion on the new point. Discuss why it is good, but not the best, something like that. At the moment, this is what is on the top of my head. If you need any more help, you know how to contact me.
