Yes, there is an examiner who would be conducting the test personally. The role of the examiner is to assess the candidate on his/her speaking ability, and also to judge how confidently the candidate can answer the queries put across. It helps the examiner judge the extent of command the candidate has on the English language. 3) Who assesses IELTS Speaking test that is recorded? The examiners for IELTS are experienced and trained to assess the performance of the candidate. Once the recording is done, the examiner will rate the candidate based on what he/she observed while having the conversation during the different parts of the test. 4) What are the parameters that are judged during IELTS speaking test? A candidate will be tested on four major points: Grammar, Vocabulary, Pronunciation and Fluency. The overall ability to communicate effectively is also tested by the examiner. 5) Can you mention 5 common questions for the first (introductory) session of IELTS Speaking test? Some common questions a candidate might come across include the following: What is your job? , Where is your Hometown? , What is your best memory from childhood? , What kind of clothes do you usually wear? , What is your favourite food? The first part of the test is more about the examiner getting to know the candidate as a person. 6) Please share ten common topics on which students can practice for IELTS Speaking test?

The examiner is testing the candidate on the basis of communication and the ability to speak as normally as possible. Its OK to be opinionated, as long as no offensive terms are used during the conversation. The idea is to know how the candidate responds to various queries being made, hence providing an opinion is alright. 8) Is the speaking test structure different between IELTS General and academic test? Explain. The Speaking test is the same for both IELTS Academic and IELTS General tests. Only the other formats have certain changes.

Here are 3 tips that can help: 1) Don’t provide very short or uncommunicative responses to questions. 2) Speak fluently without hesitation. 3) Pay attention to pronunciation and grammar while speaking.

I am having problem with the listening section in IELTS. My specific problem is with last part of listening section where the pace of information is high and you have to understand it all to answer questions 31 -40 .

You can definitely focus on the keywords or connecting words in the question and try focussing on the words being spoken during the listening test. This will enhance the probability of you spotting the right answer against the noted keywords.
