-What the work consists on and reasons to do it
-In how many parts the work is divided and which these parts are
-When you started the work and the process to do it
-Who leaded your work and the meetings you had with your tutor
-What you learnt doing this work
-The conclusion

The day of the exam, you must hand me out your speaking written. The layout of this writing will be a summary
