IELTS Speaking

Spontaneity and fluency are important in the speaking tests rather than the answers being right or wrong. Using discourse markers help to maintain the pace and flow of the conversation. Discourse markers are words or phrases like anyway, right, okay, as I say, To begin with. We use them to connect, organise and manage what we say.

Next, it is useful to start by paraphrasing the question, also get a closure by returning to the question at hand, particularly in Task3, which consists of abstract questions. Use of vocabulary whenever possible helps to land at a higher Band Score. For example, with a question related to music, classical music, rock, jazz, catchy number, background music, instrumental, soulful number, genre, live performance, lyrics, listener, (we never hear music, we listen to it!) are some of the words that can be used in the course of the chat.Spontaneity and fluency are important in the speaking tests rather than the answers being right or wrong.

Idioms may be used in the speaking sessions, never in the academic writing. However, if you are not clear about the meaning, do not use them.  Some commonly used idioms are on cloud nine, costs an arm and leg, walk that extra mile, cutting edge, call it a day, down in the dumps.

Furthermore, Speaking tests are based on topics of everyday interests such as hometown, education, hobbies, family, friends, time, weather, food, magazines and newspapers, pets, computers, television, work, leisure.

Task1 usually serve as Icebreakers, Task2 involves exhibiting one's language skill (as it involves speaking continuously for about two minutes, using connectors and vocabulary), while Task 3 involves abstract answers. In case a student has doubts about a Tastk1 or 3 question, he/she could ask for clarifications to understand the question better.

Lastly, answering in monosyllables or single sentences is a no-no in IELTS. Be chatty.
