How to sound more confident in IELTS speaking?

IELTS speaking is the exam where you are assessed on different parameters such as fluency and coherence, lexical resource, grammatical range and accuracy, and pronunciation. Confidence is not a factor here but you cannot imagine how drastically it can help you do well in all the above said parameters, ultimately leading you to receive high band score.When nervousness is an obvious emotional feeling inside, how you can sound more confident? Let us get deep into this fearful dilemma situation and know how to crack the IELTS speaking exam with better score.

i. Preparation is the Key Behind Confidence:

You cannot be confident if you are not prepared well. Without practice, you are very likely to look unconfident during your IELTS speaking test. This happens because when you are not prepared, you start focusing on your mistakes on the day of your exam. On the other hand, when you practice a lot and have already worked on a number of your weak points, you would deliver speaking as if you speak without any error.

ii. Record your Voice while Practicing:

The best practical solution of improving speaking is to record your voice and analyse it for the areas of improvements. As you might have a smartphone, it would be easy for you to download and install sound recorder app. Just do it and start practicing it. You can place a full IELTS speaking test or only cue card part in front of you which you can focus at and start speaking. After you record, you can play it and start analysing it for fluency, grammar, tense, vocabulary, idiom etc. Notice how long you have spoken and whether you had a lot of hesitations or not. With this kind of practice, you will gain confidence within yourself and this would be reflected in your exam.

iii. Try to Speak More and More:

During your IELTS speaking test, do not be afraid of the examiner and do not get too much conscious about how he is going to judge you. You can just stay calm and try to speak more by elaborating your answer. If you are in hurry, you are going to make mistakes and if you are going too slow, you would not look confident. Secondly, do not doubt yourself thinking that you are making a lot of mistakes. Just keep going on and you would be surprised to see that you are done so quickly in hardly 15 minutes.

This is perhaps the most asked question by prospective test takers, and to which trainers rush in to answer, predicting anywhere from few days to weeks. The fact is, no one knows; not even your well-meaning friend who took the exam and got his/her desired score, simply because each individual is at a different proficiency level to begin with and preparation times may vary widely.

A lot of people have fairly good speaking skills but their writing abilities may need improvement and that can take time. It's important to understand how each section of the exam is assessed before you set out to prepare on your own or undergo coaching with an individual trainer/institute - what the question types are, how they are marked and what the assessment criteria are for the speaking and writing sections.

So the first step towards IELTS preparation is to take a test and get yourself assessed by a certified trainer. While one can self-assess the listening and reading sections, it is prudent to seek professional advice to avoid the pitfalls in each section, and receive feedback for the speaking and writing responses. A good trainer should be able to explain what the IELTS examiners are looking for and hence, the specific areas in which you need improvement. 

Therefore, seek out someone who is equipped to guide you well and set you on the right path.

Good luck on your IELTS preparations!

What Is Good Communication?

Most of the leaders are wonderful communicators, they pretty well know the power of good communication, they know how to capitalize on their oration capacity. They could change even their odds to a positive output. Their communication carves them to be an ideal personality in the political world, attracts public and even inspires a commoner to follow the foots steps of a personality.

Now a days, young graduates often discuss of good communication. Indeed, to be bestowed with good communication is a boon, very few have the ability of communicating effectively. To master the art of good communication, one has to be very expressive, talkative, without caring of getting offended, fearless of doing mistakes he has to convey what he has in mind. However, in a work environment or in a education academy we find people are less expressive due to constraints.

Our education system plays a vital role in shaping a person’s personality that affects communication too. Our schools and colleges teach pupils discipline, discipline to respect elders, restricting them to comment or communicate of what is in their mind.

To communicate effectively one has to be trained to speak what he thinks. Expressing ideas, plans, tastes, aesthetics, love, hate, trust are essential for a person to lead a happy life. Good communication nurtures friendly environment, good communication renders happiness, good communication thrusts foes to become friends.

Though communication is categorized as verbal and non-verbal both are inseparable, a good communicator is a very good artist of using a combination of verbal & non-verbal tools. Lack of using verbal & non-verbal tools contribute to poor communication. When one needs to succeed in life to do wonders, he has to master the art of communication. Communication plays a decisive role in a competitive world.

Communication owes to one’s personality, I enjoy a handful of friends of mine who would talk continuously for hours from primitive era to latest space exploration however, they are quite aware of not invading my privacy.

A good communicator knows the rules, untold rules, rules of nature, rules of a civilized community, where one respect other’s space. However, invading one’s personal space is a perfect right of our spouse & children, they enjoy the liberty of getting into our space and we allow them with great content even though we feel slight discomfort.

Good communication reflects a peaceful society, evokes harmony in disparity, develops social consciousness and humanity.

It’s not a bit of exaggeration if we say English is everyday language of people beginning from morning till you go to sleep. It’s hurtful and anxious when you find out your language proves to be incompetent or it lags behind to the expectation of the competitive world. Even a person with fluent language skills when receiving a call from his colleague if he finds himself not proportional to his colleague’s skills gets agonized and gets de-motivated. It is true that your language fades little when you are tired or when you are low, hence It is better to keep patience, hold on your breath not getting tensed. You need to understand that frequent practice gives you the confidence to articulate, to speak with ease & effortless

Evaluate your skill:

I have heard people often say they are worried about their English. When you are unhappy at your English, what you ought to do is check your English level. Read a piece of news from a daily paper, find out whether you understand, how many words you have come across are new to you? How many phrases in the sentences are of new to you? What is your level of understanding? Try hearing English news or a podcast, how much you understand? Put yourself to task. Try writing a page on a general topic which you know most, analyze and find out how much you can reproduce it in the paper. We always have friends who help us at hard times. You pick a friend who knows good English, talk to him and get the feedback. We are here to help you out, we provide you with an assessment, spend some free time to evaluate yourself.

Time to decide:

Better late than never, languages can be learnt even in old age, when you keep on learning new, it rejuvenates your brain and give you energy and retain youthfulness. The most often pronounced quote says when you stop learning it indicates you have become old. Learning English is more than that you experience in your whole life. When you are likely to move ahead learning English, it’s the correct time to take the right decision  the best way is to find a trainer who trains you in Good English. We are experts in training people of varied capacity. We train, make you to correct your mistakes, enhance your speaking skills and boost your confidence level.

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.
