i will try to avoid repetition.. question .. how i decrease the time needed to reach a perfect answer ?? bcuz right now it takes me about 15 minutes and too many recordings to get a good answer .. do i have to stick to a timer?? even though i know that 15 sec. will not be enough for me ??
i have a problem in finding reasons then i try to add more words when i record and find out that i finish too early ... so do you have any suggestions ??
thanks

Answer 1: Yes, you better put a timer or clock beside you and prepare in 15 seconds. Send the first recording to us not the best one, so we can find your flaws better. It is not easy at the beginning, but practice more, you will get used to it and answer quickly.

-----------------
Answer 2: because it is hard to give reasons, so we suggest to give only two reasons. So how to find out those reasons. There is a formula:

reasons == advantages or

reasons == disadvantages

Basically, when we see a topic, we have at least one idea/reason immediately in mind, suppose we got lost for another reason, there is a tip for running out of thoughts. We can apply 'save time', 'save/make money', 'find a job', 'make friends', 'get more information' as reasons to all speaking topics.

or We can apply 'waste time', 'waste money', 'no job', 'make bad friends', 'get bad information' as reasons to all speaking topics.

try it out, this tip works for our users all the time.
