 What is IELTS speaking

IELTS speaking is a basic interview with the IELTS speaking examiner. IELTS speaking requires intelligence and patience. In the absence of basic English skills, IELTS speaking is not possible at all. In order to become a good IELTS speaker, a candidate needs to be good at regular English as any kind of nervousness can ruin his speaking day. Unfortunately, Examiners don’t give sufficient time to prepare for answers. So, prompt speaking is a key to success. Many centres only work upon pattern, whereas the more pivotal aspects are to improve grammar and fluency. Unlike writing, speaking is not a job of tough vocabulary, it is more a task of flow and ideas.

What are the ways to score 9 in speaking?

Speaking is a task of patience which requires more relevant speaking rather than effective speaking. Below mentioned points are pivotal to acquire band 9 in IELTS

 1)Listen to the question attentively and try to answer as relevant as possible. Beating about the bush may not help a candidate as speaking test is of 15 to 20 min. Thus, keep your answers concise and meaningful.

 2)There is no denying that students are least concern when it comes to polished vocabulary. They should work upon niche vocabulary. Advancement of words leads to success in IELTS speaking. There is always a room for refining your level of speaking. For instance,

Many people want to go to shopping mall as they are very popular (basic English)

Plenty of people prefer mall culture as it has gained ground in many urban cities. (Advanced)

3) Create an atmosphere for IELTS speaking: From the day you book your IELTS exam, you should be self-committed to upgrade your level of speaking. Find ways where you have more scope of talking in English. In fact, start with small sentences while travelling, talking to your peers, placing an order in restaurants etc. Speaking is an attitude which is not built overnight. Thus, slowly and steadily, make a note of your errors while speaking and rectify them on a regular basis.

4) Be yourself: IELTS speaking test demands you to be as natural as possible. Unfortunately, many candidates just work upon vocabulary and thoroughly forget about diction, pace of speaking and pronunciation. There is no point if a candidate knows plenty of words but he doesn’t know how to pronounce them. Getting familiar with the word is equally important before you use them.

5) Guidance is crucial: Many a time, a candidate is impulsive to book the test date and does not get the desired results in IELTS speaking. A candidate should not book the test until he fully gets himself assessed in terms of confidence and accuracy in speaking.

Remember!  “The Rome was not built in a day”
