I’ve neglected the Speaking tips for a long time, so this post is about how to do well in IELTS Speaking. It doesn’t matter what kind of IELTS you are taking, General or Academic – Speaking part is the same in both.
As you know, there are 3 parts in the Speaking sub-test : Interview, Speech and Discussion, read the details about it here in one of my previous posts.
Now to the Interview: you can and should be prepared to questions they will ask you.
The questions are predictable, look at this great list I found in one of IELTS forums – click here.
If you speak well, just go over it and prepare an answer in you head for every question. If you have someone to practice with – do it, if you don’t – I suggest that you record yourself. You can do that using your PC or voice recorder or even one of those MP3 players that can tape you as well.
Best advice to those who speak not so well:
1) Write your answers on a piece of paper.
2) Memorize them.
3) Speak to yourself – ask questions and answer with whatever you wrote. It will improve your pronunciation and make you more confident. This is how you overcome the initial shock of speaking English.
4) Practice a lot with you wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend, at first you may look at your paper
and then don’t – test your memory.
I prepared my students this way and it helped them a lot.
One more important thing – in Speaking you can not receive half band, like 5.5 or 6.5.
Your score will be full band, like 5 or 6.
I will continue with more Reading tips in my next post.
