From 2018 the exam format is oral interpretation if you are taking CCL test.

The whole exam is recorded while your exam dialogue is playing.

From the dialogue, one person says a few sentences in English (< 35 words) and the examiner stops the dialogue. and immediately you translate these sentences in LOTE. There is no time limit for your oral translation. Then after you finish, the examiner plays the dialogue, and you hear another person says a few sentences in LOTE (also < 35 words). Then you quickly translate them in English. There are 2 whole dialogues in total and each is less than 300 words. The topics are daily life issues including health, law, community, police, etc. you could take notes while listening.

It is quite straightforward. you just need to have good English listening and speaking besides your own languages. and also some awareness in adjusting words/orders between two languages.

good luck,

The exam only took me 15 minutes in total. It contains two dialogues in total and each contains approx. 300 words. So each dialogues takes 7-8 minutes including your time spent on translation. you could search for online materials and practise before you sit your exam.

Hello Parag, please can you let me know how are you giving the exam, as I have been told that now Naati is Not available in India, it can be given in Australia only.

Please let me know how I can appear from it, I am also from India.

Thanks
