ORAL EXAMS ARE BETTER THAN WRITTEN EXAMS. There are many opinions about this topic. There are arguments both for and against it.
On the one hand, oral exams avoid the spelling mistakes and can help you learning to speak correctly in public, and maybe, if you forget something, the teacher can help you to finish the sentence, and you aren't worried about if you have enough time or not. On the other hand, in oral exams, people can be nervous and to be scared and insecure and this can to make to forget the answer. However, written exams let you think better the things you're writing.
To sum up, I believe that written exams are better because in oral exams you can make a mistake for nervous or pressure, nonetheless, in written exams if you don't know a question you can answer to the next with no problem, though oral exams are shorter. In my opinion, oral exams should be used for languages, so that would help to the pronunciation. This topic is frequently discussed nowadays.
