This part albeit is very simple however I still want to ensure you make no mistakes in it.
So let us look that Part 0, this can be divided into 4 questions:
1. This is where the examiner will introduce himself/herself with their full name.
Examiner: Good afternoon, my name is Lisa Smith; could you please tell me your full name?
Your response can be with or without the name of the examiner, however, please do not add any title to the examiner’s first name, as it is incorrect to add a title to the first name.
The correct way to greet the examiner is:
Candidate: “Good afternoon, my name is Alisha Ray.”
“Good afternoon Lisa, I am Alisha Ray.”
Please smile and enunciate your name clearly and slowly.

2. This is a section or part where the examiner may want to know how they should address you.
Example: the examiner may ask:
Examiner: “What can I call you?”
Please be polite, smile and let them know that they can call you by your first name OR by your English name if you have any. It is perfectly ok if you do not have an English name.
Please do not explain the reason behind your name or why you are called that, this is not required or expected. This is not the test but just introductions hence please keep it precise and simple.

3. The third question in this part will be the place you come from, the examiner will ask you as follows:
Examiner: “Where are you from?”
“Where do you come from?”
Please answer by just mentioning the city that you come from with just the location of it in your country. So if you are from Mumbai; please construct your answer as follows:
“I am from Mumbai which is in the west of India.”
Please do not ask the examiner whether they have been there or not, do not recommend the examiner to visit the city you come from, as this is not required.
Please pronounce the English pronunciation of the City you come from and not the local pronunciation.

4. The last question the examiner will ask is for your identification.
Examiner: “May I see your identification or ID please?”
Please smile and present your identification to the examiner.
It is a good practice to answer in one of these manners as they are considered polite.
“Sure, please.” and hand it over to the examiner.
“Sure, here it is.”
“Yes of course.”
