Independent Topic Two

Topic

What are some important qualities of a good supervisor? 

Discussion

This topic is asking you to first identify certain qualities that you consider important in a good supervisor.  You may choose such qualities as punctuality, consideration, decisiveness, enthusiasm, patience, or responsibility.

Then secondly, it is asking you to explain why these qualities are important using examples and details.

I would suggest selecting two or three qualities that you feel strongly about, and then developing your response around those, making sure to explain why they are important.

If you are writing, you may want to use a supervisor you know and develop your essay around that person.  You can do the same if you are responding to a question in the speaking section.  Just keep in mind you will only have 45 seconds, so make it brief.
