For the veterinary, the interlocutor is the owner or caretaker of the animal. The Speaking subtest has the following structure: in each Speaking test, the interlocutor verifies her identity and profession, and there is a brief warm-up conversation about her professional experience. The role plays are then presented one by one and you have 3 minutes to prepare for each one. The role plays last about five minutes each. You receive information for each role-play on a card that you keep while you role play.OET Nursing Official OET Practice Book 1 covers and help you out in speaking subtest preparation.
The card explains the situation and what you need to do. You can write notes on the card if you want.

The role plays are based on typical workplace situations and reflect the demands placed on healthcare professionals in those situations. The interlocutor follows a script so that the structure of the speaking test is similar for each candidate. The interlocutor also has detailed information to use in each role-play. Different role sets are used for different candidates in the same test administration.
